Whether with blocks and trucks or dolls and dress-up, there are many fun ways to play at preschool, and Jamie en­joys each one, slowly teach­ing new friends what it means to be your­self. Con­fi­dent with shaggy hair, freck­les, and wear­ing mixed stripes, dots, and plaids, Jamie’s will­ing­ness to dance bal­let, rock a baby, fix cars, and fight vil­lains care­fully breaks down gen­der stereotypes in toys and role play in an ac­ces­si­ble way for chil­dren and adults alike.
