How old should readers be?

There is no foul or sexual language in the book, but the main character does explicitly wish for a penis. If you are comfortable with a brief reference to male genitals, then your child is old enough to read it or have it read to them.

Would older kids or adults be interested in the book?

Absolutely! Many adults have read, enjoyed, and learned from the story. It's funny and touching, but it also explains a lot about what it's like to be transgender.

What is the reading grade level?

The Sign Around My Neck is written for children in fourth through sixth grades. Its content, where relevant, is keyed to Common Core Standards for the fifth grade.
