Over the last few days I have been putting together a little plan for reviews and features in the coming year. As part of this I have looked back over 2018 and pulled together some data to help me see what kind of content you seem to like reading the most. I found the results fascinating!
The lists below show the book reviews which received the most likes, comments and shares on social media in the last 12 months.
There are lots of books out there which teach small children about colours, but this one is definitely our favourite as it also challenges gender stereotypes.
The old adage that pink is for girls and blue is for boys has no place in modern times. Every colour is for everybody and this book illustrates this really well. As we move through the colours of the rainbow we are shown boys and girls wearing each of the colours and partaking in activities which are often seen as gendered.
We see both boys and girls dressed in pink at a fancy party, boys and girls dressed in blue playing team sports, boys and girls dressed in yellow and wearing golden crowns and boys and girls dressed in green running through the grass. It encourages your child to express themselves using whichever colours and pastimes they like best, rather than those which society pushes them towards.
