Beyond Sparkles and Superheroes

Children receive messages about gender everyday through behaviours, images, written and spoken words at home, at school and in other settings. 

These picture books present child characters in a way that challenges gender stereotypes. They are just a sample of books available on the theme of gender equality or gender equity and have been chosen because they are both enjoyable stories to read with your child and because they represent a range of approaches to the topic of gender equity.

We hope you enjoy them.
