ToughGuys1.pngWhy I like this book: It’s such a bright and attractive, bold yet simply illustrated book which compliments and leaves much room for reflecting on the simple statements on each page.

ToughGuys2.pngResources/activities: there is so much to talk about – each spread will easily invite discussion; expand upon feelings that not-so-tough guys, or strong women might have too, and how similar we all are.

  1. The biker page is fun and poignant. I love the simple line of text that goes with it, “And it’s okay to show them…” I will definitely check this out. I suspect it will resonate with my son.
