some girls, by nelly thomas
Some girls are good with cars and bikes,
Some girls are good with art and kites.
Some girls are good with puzzles and maths,
And some girls are good with dolls and cats.
ALL GIRLS ARE REALLY GOOD AT SOMETHING!
Some Girls is an early childhood book aimed at instilling confidence in little girls.
It’s a story about how every girl is different and special in their own way.
Whether your girl likes rough, tough, gentle or pretty stuff, this book is for her!
She might have short hair, long hair, big hair or strong hair - Some Girls says all girls can look however they want.
Written by Australian comedian Nelly Thomas and illustrated by Sarah Dunk, Some Girls is a beautiful and funny book that inspires all girls to be free of stereotypes and encourages other kids – and adults – to allow them to be.
Some girls contains a range of girls of different shapes and sizes, from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, as well as multiple girls with visible disabilities.
Read it with the young kids in your life and show them early that…
“ALL KIDS CAN BE WHOEVER THEY WANT”!
Some girls wear shorts,
Some girls wear skorts.
Some girls wear skirts,
And some girls wear shirts.
ALL GIRLS CAN WEAR WHATEVER THEY WANT!
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
