some BOYS, by Nelly Thomas (out in 2018)
Some boys are good with cars and bikes,
Some boys are good with art and kites.
Some boys are good with princesses and dolls,
Some boys are good at digging holes.
ALL BOYS ARE REALLY GOOD AT SOMETHING!
SOME BOYS is the second in a series of early childhood books by Comedian Nelly Thomas aimed at instilling confidence in little boys.
Beautifully illustrated by Sarah Dunk, SOME BOYS offers parents, carers, educators and kids a way to challenge stereotypes and talk about different ways to be a boy.
It affirms all boys and teaches kids to accept each other as they are.
To instil confidence in kids
To celebrate individuality
To challenge the idea that all girls and boys are all the same
To teach kids to accept their friends as they are
To give modern parents a tool to talk to kids about gender
To give Early Childhood Educators a tool to talk about diversity
To expressly honour boys feelings and their right to an emotional life
