What Does a Princess Really Look Like?

Written by Mark Loewen      Illustrated by Ed Pokoj

Chloe dreams of being a ballerina princess. But today discovers that princesses are not just about beauty and glitter. Princesses can also be strong, vocal, and determined.

And, as she shares her work with her two dads, Chloe also notices that her princess isn’t perfect! She learns that her imperfection -her quirk- makes her unique.

Chloe didn’t create the princess she wanted to be. Instead, her princess reflects who she already is.

The True Colors of a Princess

Written by Mark Loewen      Illustrated by Ed Pokoj

These coloring pages encourage kids to think beyond the stereotype of a princess and find strength and courage inside themselves. They will color along as Chloe tells the story of how she discovered that princesses are more than just beauty and glitter.

Princesses can be smart, kind, brave, assertive, and determined. Princesses look all kinds of ways. They come from all parts of the world, and from all kinds of families.

Young artists will also meet Chloe’s dads who help her learn that nobody, not even a princess, needs to be perfect.

The True Colors of a Princess is filled with messages of empowerment, diversity, and equality.

Hear how the kids’ react

“You can be and look however you want… you are perfect just as you are.”
“…the confidence boosting, feel-good factor that we should be giving to all our little princesses.”
“This book honors the magic of princesses while helping girls expand their definition of what a princess can truly be.
Girls are brave, outspoken, imperfect, and self-aware — and this book teaches girls that princesses can be, too.”

What others are saying:

“…the most important part of this story: not ignoring our physical bodies but rewriting what we feel about them.  It’s the beginning of a new Manifesto of Beauty for young girls.

“…a wonderfully simple, engaging and inclusive story that inspires children to look beyond the glamour of royalty, and towards characteristics that truly matter.”
“Each person is perfect just the way they are. And it’s great that the main character has two dads. We need more books like this that highlight LGBTQ families.” 
Actively choosing to make Chloe’s princess imperfect means it is ok for Chloe to also be imperfect. Which will also tell the girls and boys reading this book that they too can be imperfect.”  
“As a child of LGBTQIA+ parents, I wish I had more books like this growing up. Chloe’s creativity and inner strength flew off the page and into my heart. This book is wonderful for princesses of all kinds, especially those like Chloe with two dads” 
 “This is a must-have for any parent, as it thoughtfully and playfully exposes children to the empowering topics of feminism and diverse families. Two emphatic thumbs up!!”
“This book honors the magic of princesses while helping girls expand their definition of what a princess can truly be. Girls are brave, outspoken, imperfect, and self-aware — and this book teaches girls that princesses can be, too.”
“…being smart and strong are true and noble qualities in a person. Chloe is a wonderfully thoughtful character, and it’s fantastic to see two dads in a book that’ll soon be a favorite in our house!
“Filled with the fuel young girls need to believe in themselves, this book carries the right message at the right time for the next generation of brave young women. It’s a must read!”
It is so important for children to see that girls and women are far more than their looks, they are strong, brave, beautiful and smart. But by no means do you have to be them all. Chloe’s Princess is perfectly imperfect and this is more than okay.
 “…the confidence boosting, feel-good factor that we should be giving to all our little princesses.
 “This book illustrates you can be and look however you want. And you are perfect just as you are.”
