some BOYS, by Nelly Thomas
SOME BOYS is the second in a series of early childhood books by Comedian Nelly Thomas aimed at challenging old-fashioned stereotypes about boys and girls. It is a story about how everyone is different and special in their own way.
Your boy might like rough, tough, gentle or pretty stuff. He might wear wears shirts, skirts, hats or plaits. He might get sad sometimes, and mad sometimes. He might feel shy sometimes and want to fly sometimes! Some Boys says it’s all good – all boys can be whoever they want.
Some boys like gentle things,
and some boys like rough things.
Some boys like pretty things,
and some boys like tough things.
(Other boys like everything.)
ALL BOYS CAN LIKE WHATEVER THEY WANT!
Some Boys encourages all boys to be free of stereotypes and other kids – and adults – to allow them to be.
Read Some Boys and Some Girls with the young kids in your life and show them early that…
“ALL KIDS CAN BE WHOEVER THEY WANT”!
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 teaches kids to accept each other as they are.
