    too much bellyaching and whining

    This is "An I Can Read Book" intended as a read aloud for preschoolers and an independent reader for beginning readers. I did not care for it. Wizard and his friends have a private eye club for boys only. The book opens with a girl named Marigold saying, "Mean, mean, full of beans, hope you get a hole in your jeans," because she wants to join the club, and it goes downhill from there. The whole plot revolves around the thinking that a club which says "No girls allowed" is inherently unfair. While I think that all of us would agree that it is nice for boys and girls to play together, the idea that a club for boys must allow girls is nothing but a politically correct notion. It is always interesting to me that women have demanded admittance to traditional men's colleges and laws have been passed to allow it, but there never seems to be any concurrent demand by men to be admitted to traditional women's colleges and the women's colleges remain proud that they are only for women. Our Constitution guarantees the right of association, and if a group of boys (or men) wish to have a club for boys (or men) only, they should have that right. I get tired of hearing all the bellyachers who whine, "It's not fair," every time they do not get what they want. There is much better literature for beginning readers than this.
