Is that for a boy or a girl?


Meet some awesome kids who have got pretty tired of being told that certain things are for girls and others just for boys. See how they mix and match everything they like to get what suits them best!


Told from the perspective of different kids of different ages, the book questions societal pressure on behaviours, activities, and hobbies as being for girls or for boys. Though a bit didactic, the brilliant illustrations and the different voices make it a compelling read. Flamingo Rampant “is a micropress with a mission – to produce feminist, racially-diverse, LGBTQ positive children’s books, in an effort to bring visibility and positivity to the reading landscape of children everywhere” (Publisher website).
