My Princess Boy
Written by Cheryl Kilodavis
Illustrated by Suzanne DeSimone
Dyson is a princess boy: he loves pink, sparkly things, dressing up and doing all things “girl.” Thankfully he has a family that loves him unconditionally, helps him feel confident in his decisions, and teaches him to believe in himself.
Of course this does not mean Dyson has an easy life, and that is why author Cheryl Kilodavis decided to write this book. “I wrote the story to give children and adults a tool to talk about unconditional friendship. When I feared my young son would be teased or bullied for wearing a dress to school, I spoke with his preschool teacher…” and wrote this book. The illustrations add a fresh happy backdrop to the important written text.
We recommend “My Princess Boy” especially for children ages 4-8.
