To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was really disappointed with this book. They have tried to break down stereotypes but have actually reinforced them. I bought it for my 4 year old but I won’t read it to him. I don’t want to read something that says “my shadow loves pink toys, princesses, fairies, not boy things” I know the books moves onto acceptance, but I just felt that it could have done it without some of the reinforcement of stereotypes to make the point.
I love this story. It's a really easily accessible story about gender non-conformity, being different and acceptance - both accepting yourself, your peers, and parents accepting their child. The world needs more books like this for younger children!
Absolutely gorgeous and emotional book! Read it with my children at home (and cried!) then read it with my Year 1 class. It generated so much lovely discussion and I was blown away by how mature and thoughtful our little people are! We have hope for a more tolerant future x
I am a mum and a full time nursery practitioner. Being a mum to a IGD child, you learn that colours arent part of generalising. At work it is important to be very diverse between cultures, sexuality and personal beliefs. So i would happily read this book to everyone at may need help, support or a good story to hear.
