Beyond Sparkles and Superheroes - Early Years

The books on the Beyond Sparkles and Superheroes list have been selected because they promote positive gender equality messages and celebrate children's individuality.

The early years is an important setting to target because children are absorbing messages relating to gender. Books and stories are communication and learning tools that can either reinforce or challenge traditional gender stereotypes. The list is designed to complement other books and traditional stories available in the library.
