Originally published in France, this upbeat book asserts that nothing is off limits for boys or girls. The evidence? Look at all of the grownups who defy gender stereotypes. Left-hand pages show children engaged in frequently gendered activities--a girl dances, a boy plays with toy cars--while declarative statements (e.g. "Boys don't take care of babies") appear on the right. On the pages that follow each example, a full-spread photograph demolishes the stereotype. "Really?" reads one caption, along with a candid photo of a father spoon-feeding his child. The message about false assumptions and gender equality comes through clearly, without heavy-handedness.
