A Book With An Important Message
A wonderful book which addresses the problem of gender stereotypes in a way which is accessible for children. The story, characters and illustrations make this a really enjoyable read. It is also one of those rare bilingual books for young readers. I would highly recommend for anyone trying to encourage their children to take an interest in languages.
Would Highly Recommend
I got this book for my little cousin (7 years) and he absolutely loves it. We don’t speak Spanish but that doesn’t matter at all. If anything, if sparks his interest in foreign languages. This book is exactly what we needed. Gender equality is such an important issue in today’s society and I’m hoping equality will just be normal to our next generation. I already know what I’m getting the other children in my family for Easter!
My daughters and son (ages 12, 2 and 1) love this book. It’s nice to have a book that isn’t directed to one gender e.g. princesses or dragons (actually, the stereotype of that gender). It has raised issues for our older daughter to think about and it’s great practice for her Spanish too! I think Granda could do with reading it...
Sweet Book with Great Message
My daughter loves this book, it's a really sweet story and we talk about the characters after reading. We read it in English, I would love that someday she will read it in Spanish too! Promoting gender equality in an easy accessible format. Thumbs up from this house.
Fun book to discuss gender roles/conceptions with kids and a bit of spanish thrown in to
My kids love the characters in this book.. sparks lots of interesting chats about ideas they are developing about what it means to be a girl or a boy. Cant wait to hear more about Mika and Lolos adventures !
Fantastic bilingual book for children and adults
Mika & Lolo is a fantastic, engaging story that is interesting not only for children but for adults too. The fact it is written in Spanish and English only adds to its appeal. I really enjoyed it!
Tackling important issues in a sweet little book
A really great idea for a book. Be the change you want to see in the world. Tackling the big issue of gender stereotypes in childhood and beyond. The characters are really loveable too.
Great book, my son loved the story and picked up some Spanish words while reading it. He has read it a few times now so he really enjoys it!
