I’ve got a bee in my bonnet about the gender stereotyping of children. I’m a Girl! is a breath of fresh air in a world crowded with pink princesses and brave adventurers in blue.
The girl in this story is spontaneous, intelligent, noisy, competitive and ambitious. She is a messy eater and races around everywhere. Much to her annoyance, she is continually mistaken for a boy.
I love how this book challenges preconceived ideas about what is “typical” behaviour for a girl or a boy. Its message is a powerful and important one – be true to yourself and be who you want to be.
Suitable for children aged 2+
I’m a Girl! has been shortlisted for the Little Rebels Children’s Book Award.
