Big Bob, Little Bob by James Howe & Laura Ellen Anderson 

Even though they share a name, Big Bob and Little Bob are as different as different can be. But when they become new neighbours, they might just find a way to be friends...

A comforting story of friendship for any child who does not conform to traditional gender stereotypes, this is the story of two boys, as different as different can be. Big Bob likes trucks and throwing balls and being loud. Little Bob likes dolls and jingling bracelets and being quiet. No matter what they do, they do not do it the same. But when they become new neighbours, they might just find a way to be friends... With humour and tenderness, James Howe and Laura Ellen Anderson beautifully depict the struggles and joys that come when friendships are forged between different kinds of people.

Story Mama Quick Review:

This is an important picture book. We love how it takes on gender stereotypes and flips them on their heads. Little Bob likes playing with A dolls. So what. He doesn't like trucks. He even occasionally wears girls clothes because they feel nice. A little girl moves into the neighbourhood and tries to tell Little Bob that boys don't play with dolls. Big Bob stands up for him and says that Boys can do whatever they want. The children then find a way to play together. This is a great celebration of toys just being toys and not gender specific. We love this for ages 3-8
