Oliver Button is a Sissy

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Oliver Button is a Sissy

Written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola

48 Pages

Why didn’t Oliver just do what other boys did? Instead Oliver prefers playing with paper dolls, spending time in the attic putting on costumes, singing and dancing, and playing make-believe. The result:  Oliver gets teased and bullied. Even his father doesn’t understand his choices and thinks he should do more “boy things.”  

Oliver Button Is a Sissy is a classic and has stood the test of time. Celebrated author Tomie dePaola, masterfully uncovers issues of gender stereotyping, bullying, self-esteem and acceptance. An important book 37 years ago and today.  

We would especially recommend this picture book for children ages 4-7.
