Strong Is the New Pretty by Kate T. Parker
Girls being fearless. Girls being silly. Girls being wild, stubborn, and proud. Girls whose faces are smeared with dirt and lit up with joy. So simple and yet so powerful, Strong Is the New Pretty celebrates, through more than 175 memorable photographs, the strength and spirit of girls being 100% themselves.
Why We Love This
This is James’ favourite book. We have read it countless times and I often find him flipping through the pages on his own. I also gift this book to all my friends’ kids and it is always a hit. Seeing girls (and boys in the authors other book) experiencing life fully creates worlds of possibility for young minds and empathy as they begin to reflect on the lives of others. Brilliant. xo – Erin
