Peacock’s Rainbow Feathers
5 Stars: Must Have for Every Youngster’s Library
Petey the Peacock breaks gender stereotype with his careful consideration on what feather will best suit each of his critter friends*. This short and sweet book is colourful, fun to read, great for grabby hands, and has a good moral to boot.
Gender Bias BUSTED
I love this book for having an explicitly female character (Rosie rabbit), a character with an gender neutral name (Nell the turtle!) and two ungendered characters, Mouse and Little Skunk.
Good rhymes with an easy reading rhythm.
Great Sensory Options
5 unique sensory patches of good quality! The patterned turtle shell is my favorite, my little’s favorite are the sequins on the cover.
*Peacock tail feathers grow back in about 7 months, it’s OK.
