review 1: I give it 3.5 stars.Full of practical ideas and tips for caregivers including conversation starters, dealing with other adults who fall into gender stereotypes, and helping kids stand up for themselves in a gender-biased world. For those of you following this issue, there is not new information. What is new are the practical tips for caregivers to deal with sexualization of childhood and gender stereotypes.
review 2: So, I read the first third of this book, and skimmed the rest. Honestly, it didn't really introduce any new thoughts/information to me, as this was an issue I've already given a bunch of thought to, regarding my 3 year old daughter.In fact, I don't take it to the same level as the author does. I allow my daughter to keep all the "princess" stuff

Typical popular nonfiction- fluffy with little substance. Sad since the premise has potential.
A great read. If you have a little girl in the house, check this one out.
A great beginners guide to these issues.
