The language is quite easy to understand, and the content having a mix of poetic rhymes and text works to its advantage.
The illustrations by Natalie Vasilica add the perfect charm to the book. What I especially loved is how inclusive the sketches were, even to the point of showing a boy with long hair.
Strongly recommended to every little boy and to every parent who wants to teach their sons how they are wonderful and diverse human beings who needn’t be restricted by the mould society forces them into just by virtue of their XY chromosomes. Suited for ages 3-8.
5 dazzling stars.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book at my request and these are my honest thoughts about it.
Isn’t that what we should be telling the kids? They don’t have to be invincible or correct all the time! They just have to be open to learning when they are not right. The affirmations at the end of the book can help the little ones become confident, compassionate, and kind.
The illustrations are a treat, and I mean it. Kiddo books, for me, are more about illustrations. The pictures on the pages can directly sit in the child’s mind. Kids notice details without seeming to and can recollect them at random. The kiddo could decorate a cupcake better than I did. ;)
The color scheme on each page is perfect. The illustrations are inclusive and diverse. I wish there was a little more inclusivity, but this is good too.
The font is big and easy to read. I love picture books with large fonts, so that’s another plus. The language is simple enough for little ones to understand. Don’t look for the rhythm (that can affect your reading experience). Go with the flow and enjoy when you see rhyming verses. Read the book with your little boys and talk to them about things that matter.
To summarize, What Little Boys Are Made Of is a beautiful and adorable book that breaks stereotypes and gently nudges kids to be confident in their skin. They deserve to be happy and loved.
I received an ARC from NetGalley, SOURCEBOOKS Kids, and Sourcebooks Wonderland. I am voluntarily leaving a review.
