Casey loves to play with his blocks, puzzles, and dump truck, but he also loves things that sparkle, shimmer, and glitter. He wants what his what his older sister, Jessie, has--a shimmery skirt, glittery painted nails, and a sparkly bracelet--but Jessie does not approve because boys aren't supposed to wear sparkly, shimmery, glittery things. But when older boys at the library tease Casey for wearing "girl" things, Jessie realizes that Casey has the right to be himself and wear whatever he wants. Why can't both she and Casey love all things shimmery, glittery, and sparkly?

Good book for siblings to discuss gender norms. Can boys sparkle? I hope so! And where are the books where girls can be seen throwing balls and driving toy cars and building cities?
