Sometimes a story sits with you, and affects you so deeply that you are not sure what to think. This is a thought-provoking story. No doubt, it will have many different reviews because it addresses a controversial issue in a society full of varied opinions. Although the main mission is to break down gender barriers and encourage free expression, many will interpret this in a different light. Perhaps it is mainly because of the age group a picture book addresses. However, awareness is truly the key to breaking down barriers and creating acceptance. Years ago, when teaching Pre-K, the boys in my dramatic play center loved dressing up in cheerleader uniforms and high heels, toting purses and pom poms as they went about their play. They had a blast. I really like the message in this book and I applaud Ian and Sarah Hoffman for making this project a mission.
