Kabum! series - The Cat
Bringing Stereotypes Down!
The unmissable themes of toddlers books - toys, animals, imagination, music... - with a nonstereotyped representation of families and of the world.
Toddlers' books are not exempt from stereotypes: most women are mothers and most men are either absent or superheroes. Illustrations are far from being neutral: colours, symbols, roles are gender oriented. Conveying a non-stereotyped representation of the world to the youngest is the mission of this new board book series.
by Claire Garralon
A story for toddlers about consent and respect.
The cat is on the couch. The child would like to catch him,
to caress him, to pull his fur. But a cat is not a toy and
the child gets to understand that the sole proof of love is
respecting the other's will.
