I wrote "You Be You!" to make feminist education more accessible beyond the classroom.  This illustrated children's book makes gender identity, sexual orientation and family diversity easy to explain for ages 7 and up. It also covers privilege, discrimination, intersectionality, and allyship. 25 translated editions include Chinese, Spanish, ArabicRussian, and Yiddish.


School Library Journal: "This inclusive and respectful guide should be part of all curricula about family, gender and sexuality."

Publisher's Weekly: "Writing in warm, assuring prose...Branfman urges readers to think about identity as ever-evolving."
