    Received via Netgalley in exchance for a fair and unbiased review.When I read Strong is the New Pretty in 2017, I immediately wanted to buy it for all the little girls in my life It was a love song to them, celebrating their strength, their spirit, their individuality It was telling little girls they could be anything they wanted to be, and it was okay to strive for It made me cry, and it made me smile and feel warm inside Kate Parker has done it to me again, and I may never forgive her for giving me too many feelings wrapped in another simple, sweet, powerful book The young men featured here range in ages, from 4 to 19 They are seen in every scenario, from sports to family time to just quiet moments alone with a pet There are boys of different races, different abilities, different religions There s smiles from whe...

    A year ago, I wrote a three star review of the photographic collection Strong is the New Pretty, complaining that it reinforces its own set of gender stereotypes by focusing on athletic girls to the exclusion of those with artistic or traditionally feminine interests Because that reading experience was so irritating, it thrilled me to see how much better this book is Firstly, I appreciate the fact that it exists at all, because as the author confesses in her introduction, she always believed that only girls needed their voices amplified, until people begged her to do a similar book for boys and showed her how destructive social stereotypes about masculinity can be People tend to squelch boys non masculine interests and natural feelings, making it difficult for young men to become healthy, wholehearted adults, but the world is a much better place when boys are allowed to be both strong and vulnerable.Because The Heart of a Boy explores the range of interests and feelings that boys experience, instead of focusing on the single, restrictive theme of being a strong girl, it is far superior to the original book The photographer selected children from a variety of different racial backgrounds for both books, but this one features even boys with physical limitations and health issues, and it represents a wide range of personal interests It tells you a lot about the preponderance of athletic photos in the girl book that there were fewer here Boys who are musicians, wr...

    Kate T Parker, best selling author of Stong is the New Pretty book for girls, now turns her attention to boys and gives them their due.With beautiful pictures and meaningful quotes from the boys themselves, as well as famous people, Parker encourages readers to leave old stereotypes of gender behavior behind and rather celebrate all facets of the combinations of personality, emotions, weaknesses and strengths that make each of us the unique human being that we are.The Heart of a Boy is a joy to read, a visual gift, and a book with an important message, we all want love and acceptance for who we are A conversation starter, a coffee table book to be enjoyed time and again, this book would be a good gift to yourself or others.Many thanks to NetGalley and Workman Publishing Company for pr...
