It's not very often that we share products that are gifted to us on Instagram, but our mission has always been "acceptance through visibility." Simply posting "carefully curated" photos of our family on instagram is a good start, but we also want to share some of the truly empowering and inclusive products that can also help move us one step closer to achieving our mission.
Mark Loewen, a published children's author, and a fellow gay dad, recently shared two copies of his coloring book with our daughters. The True Colors of a Princess Coloring Book: Companion to What Does a Princess Really Look Like? (Brave Like A Girl Series) came to be when his daughter asked him to play princess and knight.
"I was reminded of the other day when my daughter asked me to play princess and knight. 'What does the knight do?' I asked. 'He fights,' she told me. I then asked her what a princess did, to which she just responded, 'she looks beautiful!'"
We can do much better for our children, especially our daughters. Mark has helped to take us one step closer to doing just that with the creation of his children's books, What Does A Princess Really Look Like? (Brave Like A Girl Series). Plus, it's really hard to find a book about a kid with two dads, let alone a coloring book!
Both of these books are prominently placed on our bookshelf and should be on yours too! We highly recommend checking these out!
