Some Girls

Books $19.99Available in the shop

If you want to instil confidence in the little girl in your life to be comfortable in her own skin, then look no further than Some Girls, the debut book by Melbourne comedian – and Jean Hailes ambassador – Nelly Thomas.

In Some Girls*, Thomas challenges the gender stereotype that girls should look and behave a certain way, and instead celebrates the fact that every little girl is different and special in her own way. It's a powerful message – for both children and adults – but delivered lovingly and lightly through funny rhymes and beautiful illustrations.

Whether your little girl is tender or tough, plays with dolls or dirt, or likes her hair short or long, this book will let her know that all girls can be whatever they want.

*Some Boys is also due for release soon.
