It's not easy to become friends with someone who is nothing like you--but surprising things can happen when you give it a try.

Despite the fact that they share a name, Big Bob and Little Bob are different. Big Bob likes trucks and throwing balls and being loud. Little Bob likes dolls and jingling bracelets and being quiet. No matter what they do, they do not do it the same. Could they possibly be friends despite these differences? With humor and tenderness, James Howe and Laura Ellen Anderson beautifully depict the struggles and rewards that come when friendships are forged between different kinds of people.

Appealing book that takes on gender roles without sounding trite.
Love when Big Bob stands up for Little Bob!

A gentle book about how kids don't always need to conform to gender roles and that's OK! We like the easy and inclusive approach to the subject matter. The illustrations and text perfect for sharing with a preschooler.
