While at the library yesterday, I came across Jacob's New Dress, a cute picture story for preschool to early primary school kids. It's about Jacob, a boy who likes to wear dresses. Except for one friend who insists that "boys don't wear dresses" everyone else in the story, including mom, dad and teacher, is understanding and supportive. Of course, the story is simple and optimistic but it's also very sweet. It's a "message book" but very well done.
Amazon's description: Jacob loves playing dress-up, when he can be anything he wants to be.
Some kids at school say he can't wear "girl" clothes, but Jacob wants to
wear a dress to school. Can he convince his parents to let him wear
what he wants? This heartwarming story speaks to the unique challenges
faced by boys who don't identify with traditional gender roles.
I loved reading the reader reviews on Amazon, too.
