This delightful and unique resource was created in 2017 when C4C Bendigo and the Centre for Non-Violence (CNV), partnered with Kids’ Own Publishing to produce Rainbow Fox, a picture book written and illustrated by kindergarten children at Lightning Reef Early Learning Centre. The book is an education and literacy tool for parents and early years professionals to talk with children about gender equity. The kit includes the picture book and accompanying teaching notes, posters and videos.
Rainbow Fox is bursting with quirky characters who challenge gender stereotypes and live in a cosy cave that’s all the colours of the rainbow.
Rainbow Fox was created over a four-day period by 42 children, with guidance from Kathy Holowko, an artist and author. Watch this video to see how the picture book was created.
Educators and early years workers, contact C4C Bendigo directly if you are interested in this resource kit.
