Fiction Book Review of Call Me Max, by Kyle Lukoff, illustrated by Luciano Lozano

ROCKETKIDS

“Being a boy isn’t better than being a girl. But being myself is best,” says Max, a confident transgender child who is just starting school. When Max was born, he was given a girl’s name and labeled as a female. But Max never felt like a girl inside.

Although this book was published a few years ago, it seems more fitting than ever to review in light of new legislation surrounding LGBTQ issues. Written with warmth and reassurance by trans writer, Kyle Lukoff, Call Me Max is a picture book that follows one child’s journey through revealing his true identity to friends and family to finding comfort and acceptance in a world that might not always seem so understanding.

For children in grades‎ 2 - 4, ages ‎ 5 - 8 years.

Call Me Max, Book #1 in the Max and Friends series by Kyle Lukoff, Luciano Lozano (Illustrations). Published in 2019 by Reycraft Books, New York, NY ISBN: 978-1478868972.
