A last-minute addition before Christmas to our children’s list is My Princess Boy by Cheryl Kilodavis. Originally self-published by the author, it has turned into a media sensation after a feature in People magazine. The story is about Dyson, who loves the color pink and sparkly things. Sometimes he wears dresses, and sometimes he wears jeans. He likes to wear his princess tiara, even when climbing trees. He’s a Princess Boy, and his family loves him exactly the way he is.
A true story of love and acceptance this is a perfect tool for teaching about tolerance and standing up against bullying. Inspired by the author’s son, and by her own initial struggles to understand, this is a heart-warming book about unconditional love and one remarkable family.
Here are some interior spreads from this lovely book.
My Princess Boy is available in stores December 21st.
