I'm reading this one for two reasons: firstly, I loved this story in my childhood, and secondly, I might be writing a conference paper on it, so I've been reading it with a very academic eye. As a children's book, Bill's New Frock is an interesting insight into gender, and how boys and girls are treated differently at school.
On the other hand, there are some moments of true poignancy as well: Bill reached out to try to stop her. All in all, I think that this is an excellent book for raising gender-based dialogues with children, whether it is about gender stereotyping and socialisation, the gender divide, or feeling that you are in the wrong body.
In a nutshell, the protagonist wakes up one day and he is a girl. I guess that the reader has just to accept that because there is no indication as to whether Bill was actually a girl in the first place or if he actually physically changed.
Fine explores gender inequality in her book as Bill is faced with a variety of obstacles that force him to see the way that girls are treated. I particularly enjoyed the emphasis on the pink dress and the impracticality of wearing such an i I liked this book.
I particularly enjoyed the emphasis on the pink dress and the impracticality of wearing such an item of clothing. I also liked the way that Bill reacts to the school bully who wolf whistles at him. This book is a short read with lovely illustrations and rather funny.
It is a novel about Bill who wakes up one morning to find that he is a girl. His mum makes him wear a pink frilly dress to school. Bill is so confused because he knows he is a boy not a girl so what an earth is going on.
Bill finds is so strange being a girl and everything is so different. He spends his day being forced to keep his dress clean but eventually it gets ruined.
I think this novel is appropriate for Key Stage 2, it could be read to the whole class or used for planned guided reading sessions. Girls and boys would both find this book very funny. It allows boys and girls to see each others worlds as in the story, Bill is traumatized to find that he cannot play football because he is a girl.
The boys take up the whole playground playing while the girls must sit at the edge of the playground. This novel can be used as a basis for discussion around many topics in PSHE. I would have this book in the book corner in my classroom! One morning, almost as if in a dream, Bill wakes up to discover that he is a girl and no one realises that, not even his own cat!
His mum casually dresses him in a pink dress and sends him off to school. So Bill is forced to continue his day at school as a girl.
The day is filled with adventures and events that Bill has never before encountered and is a huge learning curve for him. At school Bill is faced with a variety of obstacles that force him to see the way that girls are treated.
Bill faces numerous challenges as a result of his new found gender including, encounters with the school bully, not been able to do tasks he used to as a boy playing football and new pressures with regards to his school work. However worst of all, Bill is cast to play Rapunzel in the school play. He finds it difficult as a girl as he sees how they are treated differently at his school and becomes very frustrated at how he is expected to behave in a certain way, as a girl not getting his dress dirty.
