Mel Elliott's second PEARL POWER children's book is a delightful story of Pearl, a clever little girl who believes very strongly in gender equality.
Aimed at 4-8 year olds, Pearl Power and the Toy Problem is written in rhyme, creating a nice rhythm for the reader and making it easier for the child to join in and learn to read.
‘There’s nothing wrong with a pink dinosaur!’
Pearl Power is back and has found another problem to tackle.
Join Pearl and Sebastian in this all new-tale. Their friend Jerome believes in the rules of toys and the colours of gender:
Pink is for girls and blue is for boys?
Follow their adventure as they teach Jerome that rules don’t belong with toys and certainly not with gender.
It's heartwarming, it's modern, it's absolutely necessary.
