What's included in The Smart Princess Series Box Set?
The Box Set includes the fun Smart Princess Series books and supporting materials to help you discuss your loved one's amazing brain power and abilities with them!
Seven (7) children's books. These stories are twists on the ‘classic’ princess fairy tales, with positive and empowering messages and examples that help teach self-confidence, growth mindset, resilience, and empathy. These stories not only show the princesses using their brains and solving challenging problems, they also tell the reader directly that they can do it too!
Teaching Moment Suggestions for each book. Research shows that kids' beliefs about their abilities are influenced by characters they look up to. To help reinforce the examples in the stories of self-confidence, growth mindset, resilience, and empathy, 'teaching moment suggestions' are included for each book. These quick and easy to review documents are intended to offer you suggestions in discussing the examples in the story with your loved one, to help reinforce that they have a powerful brain and amazing abilities just like the princess characters in the stories.
Fun Coloring Pages and Games. To further help discuss and reinforce the examples in the books, 25 coloring pages with empowering messages are included as well as two quick and easy games.
Bonus! Narrated videos of each book are also included.

Then this message is for you.
Hi, I'm John. I am a dad that wanted more empowering princess stories and messages for my then 2 ½ year old princess obsessed daughter. I admit that at first, I thought her princess obsession was cute, but as I read the stories as a parent, I become concerned.
And I think there is reason to be concerned...
“We know that girls who strongly adhere to female gender stereotypes feel like they can’t do some things. They’re not as confident that they can do well in math and science. They don’t like getting dirty, so they’re less likely to try and experiment with things.”
Dr. Sarah M. Coyne - professor, School of Family Life- BYU (lead author of the study referenced)
Princesses (in the Disney tales) avoid female bonding. Their goals are to be saved by a prince, get married, and be taken care of the rest of their lives.”
Peggy Orenstein, Author: Cinderella Ate My Daughter
After ad-libbing the stories for a while with things like, 'and then Cinderella studied science!', we developed positive and empowering versions of 'classic' princess stories and the other tools in this toolkit. These fun and inspiring stories include examples and messages about self-confidence, growth mindset, resilience, and empathy. The tool kit was developed to help amazing people like you, leverage your superpowers to change the association with princesses to brain power, self-confidence, empathy, and resilience.
The Box Set includes:
Start enjoying princess story time again
Stories that help you talk to your loved one about the power of their brain and their amazing abilities

How exactly would I use the books and tools together?
Just reading the stories with your loved one and discussing the empowering examples and parts of the story where the characters talk directly to the read is great! The other tools are there to help reinforce those key concepts.

Using all the tools is an easy 3 step process:
Have fun reading the inspiring books with your loved one!
Review the teaching moment suggestions and, use your superpowers to point out and discuss examples of brain power, resilience, self-confidence and empathy to your loved one and how they have all those amazing abilities as well.
Use the fun coloring pages and games to reinforce the examples in the stories and use those to talk about your loved one's amazing brain power and abilities. (Bonus Videos included)
What have people said about the stories?
Just the most fantastic book series!!!!
Everyone's always talking about the need for positive female leads and role models and here's a book FULL OF THEM. Can't recommend this book enough.
Finally a book for kids that shows how you can help, solve and grow
It engaged my daughter from beginning to end and the story is such a positive one for young girls
An inspiring story showing the value of a young woman's intellect.
Such a refreshing read for young girls’
I hear you. After I wrote the new versions of the first few stories, I tried to find an artist to work with but ended up doing the art myself. The first versions of the princess characters I came up were less ‘thin and pretty’ looking, but I found that my daughter wasn’t connecting with them. She already had an image of what these princess characters were generally supposed to look like, and my first attempts weren’t like those images. As a large portion of my motivation in writing the new versions was to show her characters that were using their brains, overcoming challenges, solving their own problems, and being their own heroes, I decided to try to do that with princess characters that looked closer to what she already expected.
