"In addition to a survey of LGBTQAI+ literature for youth of all ages, this slim volume, intended for library staff who work with children and teens, contains practical advice for sharing each book, developmentally appropriate program ideas, and helpful talking points to discuss how diversity should factor into your collection. Beginning with a touching foreword from Jamie Campbell Naidoo about the importance of LGBTQAI+ literature, the book's tone is warm and its advice universally applicable to school and public libraries large and small, rural and urban. Books by Jacqueline Woodson, Mariko Tamaki, and Sara Farizan might have been better than some of the older titles on the list, but what is included is a solid starting point for someone new to LGBTQAI+ literature.--Ashley, Stephen Copyright 2010 Booklist"
