    Gender stereotyping. Books aren’t ‘for girls’ or ‘for boys’, they’re for everyone.

      Hi Ettina,

      These book lists are created for parents as book title suggestions. As parents like to search for books for their boys or girls, I thought it’ll be useful to have a few title suggestions that they can look into. I agree that young children books are for both boys and girls. My son recently read an older book series called The Superhero Phonic Readers, and this series include both girl and boy superheroes, and he enjoyed reading them all.

    Thank you for this list. Contrary to the other comment on here, I don’t believe it’s gender stereotyping. I specifically searched “best books for 3 year old girls”. Why? Because like you mentioned at the beginning of the article, my daughter loves baby dolls and princesses. If I searched “best books for 3 year olds” I would have had to sort through all the dinosaur and monster books that she has no interest in. This way I get a list with books that will keep her attention. Again, thank you!
