    Is there more to being a boy than playing sports and acting tough? And if so, what does it mean to be “a boy” like you?

    A Boy Like You

    There are billions of people on the planet. Yet even with all those people, the world still needs a boy like you. A boy who gets that being “strong” can mean making sure everyone gets a turn—and that being “smart” can mean asking for help. A boy who understands how to play hard yet play fair. A boy who would rather pursue what he loves than pretend to be someone he’s not.

    In the end, what does being a “boy” really mean? And how can you “be yourself,” regardless of your gender? The truth is, we’re all on a journey to answer these questions—and this book just might help you along the way.

    A touching love letter to the ideals of boyhood, A Boy Like You explores the assumptions and possibilities of who we grow up to be while celebrating the wonderful things we already are. Written by Frank Murphy and illustrated by Kayla Harren, A Boy Like You is published by Sleeping Bear Press.
