There's a bit about Barbies in this book that I don't agree with - Barbies as "fixed" toys. Totally disagree with that. Too much Barbie merchandise can lead to overwhelm and lack of imagination, but a few Barbies can lead to totally creative play. This coming from a feminist and artist who played with her barbies for hours as a kid, creating whole worlds for them out of whatever I had around.

Other than that, I like the book.
It shares a lot of the same ideas as the book Raising Baby Green, but it's not as intimidating as that book was...
it's a simple, easy read, that has left me inspired, not overwhelmed, like the intention of the books philosophy.
