GIRLS WILL BE BOYS WILL BE GIRLS WILL BE …
Written by Jacinta Bunnell and Irit Reinheimer

Have you ever felt excluded because you were a girl? Have you ever felt like people treated you unfairly because you were a boy?

This coloring book is the project of two friends, Jacinta and Irit, who set out to re-write “the book” on gender, literally. Based on their experiences with real kids who expressed gender in complicated ways, they created a book that showed girls being powerful and fixing lawn mowers and boys who spend Super Bowl Sunday sewing.

A collection of drawings from artists all over the United States, with words by Irit and Jacinta, this is a fun book to stick in your backpack if you like coloring and thinking outside the lines.
