Who Am I? I Am Me!
Jayneen Sanders, Courtney Dawson
A book to explore gender equality, gender stereotyping, acceptance and diversity
Frankie loves dress-ups, playing soccer, visiting grandpa, cooking pancakes, and so much more. Frankie loves what Frankie loves! The choice is always Frankie’s. Allowing your child to do the things they love and simply be themselves is one of the greatest gifts you can provide. Through Frankie’s active and fun encounters, readers soon learn that in Frankie’s world there are no gendered roles – kids are just kids! Also included are Discussion Questions for parents, caregivers and educators, and extra tips on how to reduce gender stereotyping.
This book has been written to open up a conversation with children about their own individual preferences for toys, activities, games, books, etc. and to break down gender norms. In the long run, if we eliminate gender stereotyping there will be more choices for all genders, the likelihood of one gender believing they have power of another will be lessened, and children growing into adults will be free to follow their passions and be truly who they are. I hope you and the children in your care enjoy this book and the discussions it will bring.
