More About the Author

S. Bear Bergman is a multiple award winning author, storyteller and performer. After publishing six books, touring the US and Canada as a storyteller, winning audience choice awards at three consecutive US Gay & Lesbian Theatre Festivals, Bear has settled in to a life of mild-mannered parent by day and foul-mouthed Bad Fairy emcee by night. He also tells touching queer stories about home and family, gives stirring trans-pride talks to rouse a crowd, and enjoys finishing the day of work with a microphone in on hand and a brunet (preferably his husband) in the other.

I highly recommend this for any child.

I am really looking forward to bringing children into our lives so that we can share this book as a teaching method about gender diversity and appreciation.

When I was a child everyday felt like backwards day. I wished and prayed to feel like something wasn't wrong with me. I had no role models, I had no one to talk to, and any expression of "boy-ness" was shot down with frills and earrings. I quickly learned to keep my mouth shut and do my best to "fit". At twenty-two I finally found a way to be...me. When I read Backwards Day I about started crying thinking about the kids who would have the wonderful joy of reading a book such as this. The kids who are currently fighting to be themselves in a world that tells them they cannot. I so appreciate this book and I think it should be in every elementary school classroom, in every library, and a requirement for all parents. It's a beautiful story with a wonderful message that delivers hope and acceptance in an amazing way. The other aspect of this book I loved is that the characters are a variety of colors which I think speaks volumes to the multitude of folks and children who exist in our world. Thank you for writing this, thank you for publishing it, and thank you from the child I once was who wanted something, anything, that showed I was okay as me.

A great story about adults learning to deal with something kids already know--that gender differences are nothing to be scared of!

Backwards Day is one forward-thinking book! Fun and engaging, with inventive illustrations, we travel with a young person whose magical planet knows how to set things right, when the molecular structure he was born with needs revamping, and his family needs to learn about what it really means to be backwards. His teacher, doctor, and friends all see that the only thing that's changed about Andy is how happy and comfortable he is when he can be himself.

Bergman's new children's book is a gem. The story is engaging, the illustrations are bold and colorful, and the text opens the door for a lot of fruitful discussions in language that kids can understand. I highly recommend this for any child. As a trans step-parent, I look forward to sharing this with my step-children and seeing what conversation it creates.
