Pink, Blue, and You!: Questions for Kids about Gender Stereotypes | Elise Gravel, Mykaell Blais
1 post | 1 read
Simple, accessible, and direct, this picture book is perfect for kids and parents or teachers to read together, opening the door to conversations about gender stereotypes and everyone's right to be their true selves. Is it okay for boys to cry? Can girls be strong? Should girls and boys be given different toys to play with and different clothes to wear? Should we all feel free to love whoever we choose to love? In this incredibly kid-friendly and easy-to-grasp picture book, author-illustrator Elise Gravel and transgender collaborator Mykaell Blais raise these questions and others relating to gender roles, acceptance, and stereotyping. With its simple language, colorful illustrations, engaging backmatter that showcases how "appropriate" male and female fashion has changed through history, and even a poster kids can hang on their wall, here is the ideal tool to help in conversations about a multi-layered and important topic.

I wish I could‘ve recorded Lily‘s outraged shocked face on some of these pages when she learned that girls weren‘t always allowed to wear pants, or that boys are expected to never be sad or scared, or that two people who love each other couldn‘t always get married. For once, I feel like I‘m doing something right. 🌈
