Want to Play Trucks?
Publisher: Walker Books
Jack and Alex meet at the sandpit in the park every morning. Jack always wants to play trucks but Alex wants to play with dolls. Jack likes big trucks that can wreck things while Alex likes dolls with pink, sparkly dresses.
Are the boys’ contrasting interests a barrier to friendship or can they find enough common ground to play happily together? And could they even discover something that they both really enjoy?
Beautifully observed illustrations complement a thoughtful tale of divergence, disagreement and compromise that challenges some gender stereotypes. A celebration of diversity and a demonstration of the therapeutic power of play and the fundamental similarities we all share.
