by Luis Amavisca and Blanca Lacasa, Illustrated by Gusti
What does it mean to be a feminist? Through everyday situations, the girls and boys in this book, help us better understand it.
Feminist girls and boys like all colors, wear their hair as long as they want and choose their own toys. They love to play all together and express their emotions. But, above all, they refuse to classify things as "girl´s stuff" and "boy´s stuff".
Luis Amavisca and Blanca Lacasa, with Gusti's wonderful illustrations, present, in the form of everyday situations, a brief manual for feminist girls and boys. Equality is everyone's responsibility.
Target Age: 4 to 8
"The art itself is by Gusti, which is a pretty smart move since his is a style that is hard to resist. In showing me this book, Ellen made sure to display her favorite image of a Zoom classroom that shows different kinds of hair. I'm still keen on anything that shows what life was like when the pandemic started." -- School Library Journal
"These examples are offered without explicitly naming the stereotypes, which may be useful in starting conversations with young readers." -- Kirkus Reviews
