Hidden Messages In Children’s Picture Books analyzes six picture books, The Velveteen Rabbit, The Little Island, Horton Hatches the Egg, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Are You My Mother?, and Monster Mama to offer insights into the way children’s stories can lead young children to adopt and accept stereotyped gender roles or challenge them. If women want to change the way they are perceived, the first place to start is with the stories we tell. We can not challenge that which we are unaware exists.

Maria Nikolajeva, Professor of Education, University of Cambridge says she finds the new analysis of The Velveteen Rabbit in Pearson's book "very exciting to use in juxtaposition to the more conventional one."
Margaret Mackey, Professor Library and Information Studies, University of  Alberta says: "I found the book very interesting, and I am very engaged by the robust inquiring eye Pearson brings to the illustrations."
