“I wish I was a boy,” my daughter told me recently.
I think it was after a grand Avos U’banim event, when her brothers came home loaded with soda cans and other nosh and prizes.

I tried to explain to her the many perks that only she, as a girl, had—perks like more vacation days than her brothers, and more class plays and performances, and a fun G.O. program in school… It took a few more examples, but eventually she stopped grumbling about it.
It got me thinking, though. I bet there are many little girls out there who wish they were boys. So many of the popular figures in kids’ lives are male—Uncle Moishy, the Twins from France, MiddosMan…
Wait. Stop right there, because news flash: MiddosMan now has a female counterpart, his cousin Middos Malka, who’s raring to go fight Mr. Yetzer Hara as wholeheartedly and with as much zest and sense of adventure as MiddosMan himself!
Yes, you read that right. The newest book in the MiddosMan series is actually starring his cousin, Middos Malka. And just like all the other MiddosMan books, it’s got a read-along CD with great music and songs, as well as fantastic illustrations inside the book.
So if you’ve got a little girl in your life who could use a great gift, go ahead and get her Middos Malka.
And watch her delight in the magic…
