Their lack of inclusivity is called into question.

Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball took a closer look at Jeremy and Jinger Vuolo’s new book. And, in an Instagram post, she pointed out many of the issues she discovered. She noted that the book promotes harmful stereotypes. She also found that there is a lack of inclusivity in the picture book.

Throughout the book, there is some diversity in the illustrations, including some people of color and people with disabilities. However, Katie Joy believes that this was handled poorly by Jeremy and Jinger Vuolo.

In her Instagram post, Katie explained:

“The only time a child with a disability appears in the book the book begins to feel less inclusive. Rather than the child participating in an activity with others, like other lessons, the authors write”

‘He loves you too,
more than you know.
He wants to be best friends.’

Katie continued, noting that the phrasing felt off. She thought it would be better if there was less focus on the disability and more on including the child in the rest of the lessons throughout the book.

Touching on dangerous stereotypes promoted in the book, Katie wrote about the book’s lesson on self-control. She pointed out, “A Black girl wanting to steal a balloon and disobey the rules. Given the socio-political environment for BIPOC this lesson felt tone-deaf.”
