An exciting board book series that asks deep questions in a wonderfully accessible way.
Even little children have big questions about life. Simone de Beauvoir focused much of her work on the concept of equality, insisting that girls and boys and women and men should have the same opportunities to be happy. Everyone should have the right to be themselves and be treated with respect no matter what. Kids will come away from this book encouraged to think about how the same things can make girls and boys happy or sad or excited, and everyone should listen to who they are on the inside and respect that in others.
Wonderfully inclusive and gender equal. May be difficult for a young reader to understand that girls and boy could be treated different as they may not see that discrimination yet.
