A Story About Being Confident & Original
Illustrated by Brenda Figueroa
“You’re a boy!” the kids exclaim. “You can’t play with a doll.”
But Travis has lots of confidence and little regard for social norms. There are so many things to like in the world. Why should there be limits that keep him from enjoying those things?
“I am who I am! There’s no boy or girl line. In sports or in dress-up, I’ll sparkle and shine.”
Dresses and armor one day, ballet and basketball the next. Travis sets no limits on what he enjoys doing. But when some of the kids on the playground begin to pick on him, will Travis dull his shine or decide to truly dazzle?
Complete with colorful illustrations and bold comebacks, this empowering story encourages kids of any gender to challenge the social norm and reveal their true selves.
Dazzling Travis by Hannah Carmona Dias carries the key message of gender stereotypes and being different supported by the many advocates of positive parenting solutions. This book will perfectly round out your home or school library among other stories that focus on confidence and being who you are.
