Synopsis: Coppelia searches for her lost bellybutton and meets kindly animals along the way. She is about to give up her quest when she meets a kangaroo who has put the bellybutton to a most practical use. Should she take if back, or leave it with a mother who can make good use of it?
The story is told by Coppelia to a woman who tells it to us.
The Lost Bellybutton, publishedwith Lollipop Power Press in the 1970s, was one of the earliest of the nonsexist children's stories (for ages 4-9).With charming illustrations by Leslie Udry.
From the Author:
The Lost Bellybutton is notable for giving a girl an interesting voice (and keeping an older woman silent, listening) and letting Coppelia create her own identity through her words, for posing an ethical problem thatyoung children can understand, and for treating a Freudian theme reassuringly.My mother, who was for twenty-five years a first-grade teacher, used to read itto her five and six-year-olds. On the first reading, it appeared funny andwicked to hear the word "bellybutton." If that still happens in someparts of the USA, the book also teaches respect for the parts of the body.
