  • full of stereotypes

    by on

    very disappointed in this book which was meant to encourage preschoolers to learn about starting school - I found that it particularly stereotyped Asian boys as being extremely shy and only good at maths! it certainly didn't encourage my son - the story made school sound pretty dull.
