Two Editions Of The Same Book Demonstrate How Our Society Has Changed In 30 Years
The Best Word Book Ever; More Than 1400 Objects - Richard Scarry

This children book has changed to be more gentle equal

and inclusive. 

 

 

Because he loved the book so much as a child, Alan immediately noticed that the 1991 edition had some pretty obvious changes. Most of the updates reflected the changes in society, many in reference to gender equality.

 

And this illustration shows Mom and Dad working together in the kitchen, as traditional gender roles had shifted and evolved between 1963 and 1991.

 

On the playground, the characters' genders were switched up, too, as the sexes became less strictly separated.

 

That's a good start. 

 

The page on jobs has changed, too. While the teacher was switched from a female to a male, other occupations — like a train conductor and a soldier — were swapped out for a photographer and a judge. It's hard to say exactly why this was done.

 

Some changes, though, don't seem to make sense at all. The name of this sailboat has been changed, and its flag has disappeared.

 

Gretel was the name of an Australian America's Cup challenger and Sydney to Hobart race winner. So was White Swan in the late 1980's. The change reflected not only that, but the boat no longer used a woman's name, as it gives the wrong message of objectifying women. 

 

Pretty nice changes.

Well I have finished Fool's Quest and I'm looking at what around 12 months at least for the next book to be published?

The Best Chocolate-Balls Ever- Children's Book with Recipe: How to build a parent-child relations (When We Cook Together 1)
The Best Chocolate-Balls Ever- Children's Book with Recipe: How to build a parent-child relations (When We Cook Together 1) - Ally Nathaniel I just made chocolate balls with Jacob and his mommy and enjoyed every minute of it. This is a really cute and educational book for both children and their adults. There are tips at the end of the book for parents about allowing kids in the kitchen, and how to turn that time into a learning experience. And you get a awesome no cook chocolate ball recipe. The book is written by Ally Nathaniel and illustrated by Caroline Artayudianto, and they both done a great job. I received my copy in exchange for my honest opinion. - See more at: http://teresanoel.blogspot.com/search/label/Children%27s%20book%20Reviews#sthash.ivsvnb1q.dpuf

The Best Cat Book Ever: Super-Amazing, 100% Awesome - Kate Funk

A very cute book.

I liked that Funk opened by saying that AC is mostly willing to pose in the pictures and explained how she works with him to get the shot (designing sets and costumes that he will tolerate, working with his mood) as opposed to all the people on the Internet who force their pets into ridiculous costumes just for fun.

These pictures are great and the amount of time it took to create them was definitely worth it. I also enjoyed that Funk included some of her sketches and photography of the process (making sets, sewing costumes, those creepy fake arms) to get a behind the scenes kind of feel. Funk has created some very fun and amazing pieces and is a very talented artist.

A very funny book that any cat lover would enjoy.
