The author reinforces gender stereotypes with a "humorous" ending where the girl and boy exchange clothes, resulting in a teacher exclaiming to the boy about his wearing pink pants. (You can tell it's sexist when you realize that navy blue pants wouldn't have worked.) Imagine how gender non-conforming children feel to have their likes ridiculed in this way.
