The Good, the Bad, and the Barbie
Peering demurely to this side, the famous doll’s visage greets a potential reader on the cover of this “unauthorized” book. Writer Tanya Lee Stone examines the toy’s history as well as the impact it has had on our culture. Taking direct quotes from many women from aged seven to 70, the author creates thought-provoking dialog about the social effects, from the “good” to the “bad,” that the American icon has made in her first 50 years. Intended for young adults, this is a quick read, nonfiction that any age group may enjoy. Whether or not you played with the dolls as a child, you know you recognize her. Learn a bit of history from this book, then share it with a girlfriend. Read our review of this book on our blog!
