Declaration of the Rights of Girls and Boys

LITTLE ISLAND BOOKS

By ELIZABETH BRAMI, ESTELLE BILLON-SPAGNOL

A brilliant, funny, quirkily illustrated and heartwarming list of the rights of boys and girls, presented as a flipbook to be read from either end. A book for those who believe in gender equality, self-expression and the right to be who we are.

Girls, just like boys, have the right to be scruffy, untidy, hyper, to do any job they like, not to be princesses, to love whoever they like.

Boys have as much right as girls to cry, to play with dolls, to wear pink, to like reading, not to be superheroes, to fall in love with anyone they like.

We think this is suitable for ages 4 - 8

Belle says:

I really like the illustrations, because they were very all over the pages. The people in the book had a lot to say. That if you're a boy, you don't have to have short hair and you don't have to play football and if you're a girl you don't have to wear dresses, have long hair and play tea party. I think they're showing that everybody can be different.
