Strong is the New Pretty – a Birthday Review


Happy Birthday M! This book was a special find and one that I knew she needed as she gets older and continues to grow into an amazing young lady.

For any parents and teachers alike, this book is a must for your home and classroom. It completely redefines "pretty" and shows just how wonderfully unique we all are. The authors chose such a rich diversity of young ladies from a wide range of ages and cultures. Your girls will be able to find girls "who look like them" which is drastically missing from so much literature.

As I write this, I see one of my sons reading this book with my M. He is engrossed in it, just like her. On second thought, this gives another reason this belongs in your classroom. Our young men can see what makes our young lady special and worthy of their respect and admiration. It's message they both need to see.
