Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away with Another Spoon
It's here. It's queer. You can get it now!
Reach And Teach says:
When Jacinta told us she had another coloring book up her sleeve, after our mega-hit Girls Are Not Chicks, we told her to pull up both sleeves and get to work. She got Nat Kusinitz working on the illustrations and together they gave us this wonderful present for Coming Out Day 2010 (October 11, 2010). That's when this book hit the streets, the bookstores, the sidewalk, the carpet, the coffee table... wherever you want to sit down and color!!!!
Special Offer: Get a treasure bag of eight naturally made crayon rocks (eight primary colors). Use the pull-down menu to add the little treasure bag of crayons.
About the Book:
We have the power to change fairy tales and nursery rhymes so that these stories are more realistic. In Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away With Another Spoon you will find anecdotes of real kids’ lives and true-to-life fairy tale characters. This book pushes us beyond rigid gender expectations while we color fantastic beasts who like pretty jewelry and princesses who build rocket ships.
Celebrate sensitive boys, tough girls, and others who do not fit into a disempowering gender categorization.
Sometimes the Spoon...aids the work of dismantling the Princess Industrial Complex by moving us forward with more honest representations of our children and ourselves. Color to your heart's content. Laugh along with the characters. Write your own fairy tales. Share your own truths.
"As moving and funny as Walter the Farting Dog, with pictures you can color however your heart desires, Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away with Another Spoon is appropriate for children of all ages, especially those who grew up without it!"
--Ayun Halliday, The East Village Inky
"These coloring books are beautiful and visionary."
--Jennifer Berger, About-Face
"...coloring this would be a very meditative way to remind yourself about self-acceptance and diversity..."
"Get this cool feminist coloring book even if you don't have a kid."
--Jane Pratt, founding editor, Jane and Sassy magazines on Girls are Not Chicks Coloring Book
"An ingeniously subversive coloring book."
--Heather Findlay, editor in chief, Girlfriends magazine on Girls are Not Chicks Coloring Book
