Some Boys is the second in a series of kids books 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 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.

Written by Australian comedian Nelly Thomas, 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'!

Good for younger kids


It definitely reinforces messages about encouging boys to dress, play, and feel as they please instead of conforming to gender norms, however there isn't a story to the book and it's quite sparse (although there are lots of opportunities to discuss pictures) although I do appreciate the rhymes. I bought this for my son's 4th birthday and he doesn't mind reading it but prefers books with a storyline and more content. I probably wouldn't have bought this for a child older than 4 and would have been more disappointed in the purchase if I didn't have another baby boy that I know will get use from it!



Must buy book!!!


Bought this book for Master 4. He loved it so much he took it to kinder for the teacher to read to everyone. He loves wearing skirts and was so happy that it says "some boys like to wear skirts!" A must have book for kinder age children.
