|About the Book|
This picture book by S. Bear Bergman is told from the perspective of different kids questioning societal pressure to designate their behaviors, activities, and interests as being for girls or for boys. I appreciated the different voices of kids that reflect their different ages (baby to late elementary) and interests. The illustrations compliment the text and make this a special text. I personally appreciated having a text that highlights children who are people of color and a child wheelchair user.The publisher, Flamingo Rampant, describes itself as a micropress with a mission--to produce feminist, racially-diverse, LGBTQ-positive childrens books, in an effort to bring visibility and positivity to the reading landscape of children everywhere. This book certainly fulfills this aspiration.
