Format: Paperback
With an entertaining story about a mystery-gender child named X, Lois Gould prompts us to question our most deeply held convictions about "boy-stuff" and "girl-stuff." Kids and adults of all ages will smile at the outlandish details and alliterative descriptions used to create a world where a child might thrive based on his/her individual needs, interests, and abilities without respect to gender. Gently prodding us to examine our own long-held stereotypes, the slim volume challenges us to "be all we can be," no matter our gender, and without requiring a visit to our local recruiter! This is a great gift at baby showers!

Baby X is a book that make us Xamine our selves and our culture. It is funny and touching and a must for little children. I think this is one of the best books to teach our children a kinder, more open way of being.

This story is as appropriate today as it was in the year it was written.
It is a tireless story of eliminating gender inequity, and how difficult that is to do in our society. I read the book to many schoolchildren years ago, and was always fascinated by the fact that it had such appeal to girls and boys alike.

Format: Paperback
I read this in one of my textbooks for class. I then proceeded to read it to my girlfriend. Then I read it to all my best friends. Then I read it at open mic. Then I bought it outside of my textbook. This book was absolutely awesome. I am going to name my child Francis or Junior and declare its gender X. I am, of course, going to have to buy a copy of the 85,000 page instruction manual for how to work it. :-)

Format: Hardcover
The message of this story was great. It was obviously written for at least a high school audience (I can't imagine the message could really be appreciated by anyone younger without explanation) but the reading level is middle school at best, and it reads like a child's fairy tail. I understand that that's the point but that combined with replacing every "ex" with an "X" makes it torture to get through.
