STRONG is the new pretty

Just the other day, I rushed to my local book store to buy a birthday gift for Paige’s kinder friend – I love giving books as gifts by the way. As I made my way to the picture books, I was distracted by an eye catching book on the shelf called STRONG IS THE NEW PRETTY by Kate T. Parker. As usual, I was in a hurry but I knew I had to make time for this book simply because the front cover said it all! After spending some time looking though, I was hooked, Strong Is The New Pretty was extraordinary and empowering and was coming home with me!

About the book

Strong Is The New Pretty is a photographic book with over 100 girls being their authentic selves. There is a unique quote given for each special girl which is both captivating and powerful.

The book is made up of fierce and joyful girls—a celebration of what it means to be strong (whether athletic, bookish, brainy, brave, loyal, or courageous).

The photographs send the message that girls are perfect in their imperfection; beautiful in their chaotic, authentic lives; and empowered by their strength instead of their looks. They are messy. They are loud. Wild. Full of life. Adventurous. Silly. Funny. Strong.

I am so excited to share Strong Is The New Pretty with you – the book empowers me as woman and most importantly it drives me to empower her. I am beyond happy that this book sits on Paige’s book shelf to enjoy as she grows older. Strong Is The New Pretty by Kate T. Parker comes as a hardback and retails for $39.99 Australia wide.
