Rated 4 out of 5 by from Requires critical thinking Beautiful illustrations. Not straightforward. Requires kids to understand the irony between the pictures and the statements. Parents will need to tell kids the difference between traditional expectations and the need to break away from thoughts that limit what girls can actually do. My daughter didn't understand some of the statements because she wasn't brought up to think that girls have to sit quietly and stay prim and proper.
