What to expect: Equal Rights, Acceptance, and Friendship
Baby Trolls Get a Bad Rap is for all readers, no matter their size, who know that children’s books are the absolute best!
The Baby Trolls want you to sign a petition for equal rights and awareness for ALL TROLLS! Including the baby ones with so much potential. They want to be appreciated and respected, definitely not ignored, and (most importantly), they want to be your friend! Why do the old, scary trolls get all the attention? It’s time for the Baby Trolls to shine, especially in a children’s book as fun as this one.
Horatio, Princess Grizelda, and Saul (who says Grizelda is not a princess) engage readers in some humorous and fun banter. The conversational text is placed in speech bubbles, while the colorful trolls pop adorably from the pages in contrast to the clever use of white space. In a world where we’re beginning to see young people stand up for what they believe in and fight for it, too, Baby Trolls Get a Bad Rap is a fantastically empowering conversation starter written with the youngest readers in mind. The petition in which children can write their names right into the book is a smart and delightful way to engage readers further.
If an introduction on the topic of equal rights and activism is on your agenda, starting with Baby Trolls Gets a Bad Rap would be a great choice!
