Getting my cousins into plenty of trouble!

My cousin has 3 kids - 6, 8, and 9, girl, boy, girl. For Christmas I got them The Double Daring Book for Girls, The Dangerous Book for Boys, and The Daring Book for Girls respectively. The boy was hooked as soon as he saw a project that included a Swiss Army Knife. The girls immediately sat down with me and we looked through both books in their entirety. They can't wait to try out the projects and activities and kept calling out to their dad and uncle all the things they're going to do. There was also a bit of "Girls rule, boys drool" flying back and forth as they compared books. I'd say they were definitely a hit!

screw the gender binary

Seriously, folks, this book is all about enforcing the gender binary. Who says there are only two genders? And why should girls think so differently from boys? Why shouldn't boys also learn cats cradle? All this does is enforce unnecessary stereotypes about gender. ...
Seriously, folks, this book is all about enforcing the gender binary. Who says there are only two genders? And why should girls think so differently from boys? Why shouldn't boys also learn cats cradle? All this does is enforce unnecessary stereotypes about gender. Let's instead try to challenge gender, because let's face it - who totally fits in with the western definitions of 'feminine' or 'masculine'? Break out of the gender binary and get a life.

    A reviewer

    I will never understand why some authors think that their readers are ignorant. In the section ' French terms of endearment', there are two mistakes : no, 'Ma petite chou' is not correct and no, we do not say ' Quand les poulETS auront des dents '. These mistakes make me think that there are many others that I cannot verify and it turns me off totally !
