Second Barbie Review--Second Star!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Thank you School Library Journal! The Good, the Bad, and the Barbie has now received its second review--and it's second star! Here's a bit of what SLJ said:

"Readers learn about Mattel Toys and the background behind Barbie’s concept and development, how it was a solution for girls who wanted to imagine adult roles rather than just play mother, and details about inventor Ruth Handler. But more than that, Stone reveals the pathos behind so many relationships of girls with Barbie: those who cherished her and those who were negatively influenced....The author maintains her signature research style and accessible informational voice and includes extensive source notes and bibliographical information."
