My princess boy; a mom’s story about a young boy who loves to dress up


Dyson loves pink, sparkly things and sometimes wears a dress and his princess tiara, even when climbing trees!


Inspired by the author’s son and by her own initial struggle to understand, this is a heart-warming picture book about unconditional love and acceptance of gender difference. The Princess Boy at the heart of the story is a little boy who likes to play dress up, wear a tiara, and twirl like a ballerina. The best thing about this book is how it treats this as a matter of fact, and the way the other characters accept the Princess Boy on his own terms. It is also a call for tolerance and an end to bullying and judgements.
