With writing prompts, discussion notes and a detailed synopsis and author notes, this reading guide contains everything you’ll need to enjoy Princess BMX in the classroom.
The short chapters and fast moving action make it an ideal class reader, especially if exploring other Princesses to compare and contrast with, or if your class has an interest in BMX. It would also be a great addition to a class bookshelf as it would appeal to all and the sparkly cover is very inviting! I really enjoyed this book.
Princess BMX was listed in the Gender Collective Best Books 2019 – a round up for the absolute best books for smashing stereotypes and is also recommended by BookTrust. Themes explored include:
