Book Summary

Not Every Princess takes readers on a poetic journey gently questioning the rigid construction of gender roles and inspiring readers to access their imaginations and challenge societal expectations. It intends to encourage all of those princesses and pirates who did not fall into a life of castles and boats that they too are no less than what they dream to be.

A Note to Parents provides useful advice and strategies to help children imagine, play, and ultimately envision and inspire themselves beyond the limited roles and expectations that gender stereotypes create.
