Join Clive and friends Mina, Jeffry, and Asif as they play with and care for his baby dolls.
Clive, Mina, Asif, and Jeffrey are pretending! Toddlers LOVE to imitate and that is what the kids are doing: imitating what they see parents do. The story celebrates imagination, caring, and meeting young readers right where they are. We highly, highly recommend that you purchase the complete series. Toddlers are going to LOVE spending time with Clive and exploring the pages even if no one is reading to them.
On the back of each book, there is a note explaining that this book series for "celebrating diversity and challenging gender stereotypes." Of all the books in the All About Clive board book series that we have read, this is the one that comes closest to representing traditional stereotypes and the need for a celebration statement on the back. For the book to hit its mark, adults must be confident in reading the book, celebrating the activity, and NOT adding any girl/boy commentary.
Every toddler and preschooler will see themselves in Clive, Jeffry, Asif, and Mina. They are pretending to be parents - just like we did at their age.
This is a book series about a boy and the things he likes to do.
Let your reader tell you the story. What activities do they see? What kinds of things do they want to do with their babies (be it a human form or stuffed animal)? Not only is this a chance to celebrate imagination, but also get some insight into what kinds of things your child is picking up from you.
