Boys Are Best!
by Manuel Olten
Age Range: Under_5
Two very opinionated little boys think "boys are best" and that "girls are silly"! As they get ready for bed they make fun of all the 'silly' things that girls do, such as spending hours combing their dolls’ hair or changing their clothes. Girls are also “such scaredy cats” because they are even frightened of ghosts. Soon, however, the boys get their comeuppance when it’s their turn to be frightened.
This is a funny and irreverent story with bold, distinctly tongue-in-cheek illustrations by author/illustrator, Manuela Olten. It is a picture book which will have young readers laughing out loud at the boys’ antics and is also an ideal book for parents to share with their children.
