Let Toys Be Toys started this petition to Usborne, Buster, Igloo & other children’s publishers

Titles like "The Beautiful Girls' Book of Colouring" or "Illustrated Classics for Boys" send the message that certain books are off-limits for girls or for boys, and promote limiting gender stereotypes.

How can a story or a colouring page be only for a girl or only for a boy? A good book should be open to anyone, and children should feel free to choose books that interest them. It's time to Let Books Be Books.
