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.
With writing prompts, discussion points and a detailed synopsis and author notes, this Chicken House reading guide contains everything you’ll need to enjoy Princess BMX in the classroom.
Themes explored include:
• Fairy tales and fantasy stories
• Expectations & freedom of choice
• Biking, skating and extreme sports
• Feminism & rebellion
• Comedy & humour
• Friendship & teamwork
• Non-conformity & challenging stereotypes
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.
More teaching resources coming soon.
