A Fire Engine for Ruthie by Lesléa Newman (2004)

Written as a direct response to Charlotte Zolotow's book William's Doll, Newman's book features Ruthie, a young girl who would rather play with trains and automobiles than dress up and have a tea party with grandma.

Luckily, grandma eventually lets her hair down and accepts that playtime is for everyone, no matter your gender.
