Our book for the Spring 1st half term is:

Want to play trucks?

By Ann Stott

What this book is about

Want to Play Trucks? focuses on conversations between Jack and Alex, one of whom likes to play with dolls and the other with trucks. ‘You can’t wear a tutu and drive a crane,’ argues Jack, and his reasoning is that, ‘It wouldn’t fit in the driver’s seat.’ A compromise is made where the doll wears dungarees instead and then Jack and Alex go for an ice cream.  This books helps the children to talk about gender stereotypes and how we sometimes can make our minds up about something a little too quickly!
