Jamie Is Jamie

A Book About Being Yourself and Playing Your Way

illustrated by Maria Bogade
$12.99

There are so many fun things to play with at Jamie’s new preschool—baby dolls to care for, toy cars to drive—and Jamie wants to play with them all! But the other children are confused . . . is Jamie a boy or a girl? Some toys are just for girls and others are just for boys, aren’t they? Not according to Jamie!

Jamie Is Jamie challenges gender stereotypes, shows readers that playing is fundamental to learning, and reinforces the idea that all children need the freedom to play unencumbered. A special section for teachers, parents, and caregivers provides tips on how to make children’s playtime learning time.

Praise for Jamie Is Jamie

“Jamie’s willingness to dance ballet, rock a baby, fix cars, and fight villains carefully breaks down gender stereotypes in toys and role play in an accessible way for children and adults alike.”—Foreword Reviews
