Boys Will Be… by Susann Hofmann

Boasting bold and brightly coloured illustrations, big flaps on every page, and a large easy-to-handle format Girls Are Pretty… and Boys Will Be… by Susann Hoffman are clever, empowering board books that subvert the conventions of gender stereotyping in light-hearted and accessible ways.

These books show that girls are pretty… funny, bold, creative, and smart, and that boys will be… kind, loving, helpful, and calm – and that kids in general can be anything that they want to be. With simple text perfect for sharing with young children and a diverse range of nationalities, Girls Are Pretty… and Boys Will Be… offer an inclusive celebration of the different ways that children can have a positive impact on the world around them. Perfect for ages 2+.
