Description

"Three-year-old Casey wants what his older sister, Jessie, has--a shimmery skirt, glittery painted nails, and a sparkly bracelet--but Jessie does not approve. After two boys tease Casey about his appearance, Jessie evolves to a place of acceptance and celebration of her gender creative younger brother"--

2.5-2.75 • Very well intentioned, but lacking in execution. Main character lacks in development; secondary character doesn't have enough time "on screen". Some lost potential, here.
LibraryThing member villemezbrown
The author of Heather Has Two Mommies continues her tradition of breaking down topics adults have difficulty with into picture books that make it easy for children to understand. Gender identity, gender roles, sexual stereotypes and even sibling rivalry get the treatment here.
