    Parents Be Aware: This Kids Book Features Topless Female Natives of West Indies
    Parents Be Aware: This Kids Book Features Topless Female Natives of West IndiesI am posting this so that parents and teachers can make an informed decision about if they want to explain to kids that Native females of the West Indies did not wear any clothing on the top parts of their bodies.The 2-page spread illustrates West Indies Natives (Indigenous People) adults and children where the females are clearly not wearing clothing on the top parts of their bodies, even while their chests are partly covered by objects.The adult female is holding a bowl of fruit covering most of her chest. The child female’s long hair covers part of of her chest.An observant child will notice that the females are not wearing any clothing on top.See the attached picture from the book.The text on one pages with the illustrations says, “People in the West Indies used to poke holes in gourds, fill them with fireflies, and use them as flashlights at night.”Considering the age this book is geared towards and the subject of the book (see 2nd picture teaching mechanisms light entering the eye and the brain) I don’t think this is the right book to introduce to children the fact that West Indies Native females did not cloth the tops of their bodies. But parents and teachers should be aware of this and decide for themselves.

    Explains abstract concept so well
    I bought it for my three year old but it is for five years and above. But the concept of light and what it does has been explained so beautifully.

    Nicely presented…
    Used this in a weekly STEAM-centered curriculum on Light & Shadow presented for, ‘Family Inventors Lab’ – geared towards 3 – 7 year olds. Kids loved it. Several parents asked for the title. I liked the illustrations and the way the subject was presented in the overall context.
