Some Boys


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.)


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.
