How Disney Princesses Influence Girls Around The World

Timely article and study and a good time to announce that we will be publishing a coloring book depicting princesses from all over the world (both real life and inspired)...stay tuned!!

"Her latest study, published in March in the journal Social Sciences, analyzed 63 princess drawings from girls in Fiji, India and Sweden. In this sample, nearly every drawing — 61 out of 63 — depicted a light-skinned princess, many of those resembling Disney characters. Fijian girls drew multiple Ariels; Indian girls drew Belles and Sleeping Beauties. Not one girl drew a princess in her country's traditional garb."

A researcher wanted to see how girls of different nationalities perceived the idea of a princess.

A Children's Book for Little Girls Who Dream BIG!

As a dad of little girls, I feel passionately about building a better, more egalitarian society for them. This children's book, "RAD Girl Revolution", helps empower and inspire little girls to consider careers in fields where women are typically underrepresented, and also helps instill a gender equal mindset in little boys. By using storybook style images of inspiring, diverse, REAL little girls, "RAD Girl Revolution" will be the book that stops gender bias before it starts! It's now available to pre-order on Indiegogo! Check it out at www.radgirlrevolution.com!

Rad Girl Revolution is a book that shows young girls they can Rise Above Doubt to Reach Any Dream! | Check out 'A Children's Book for Little Girls Who Dream BIG!' on Indiegogo.

Creating Diverse Children’s Books

I started this company after my 3 year-old daughter told me she didn’t want to be Chinese. I wanted to write a book with a strong Asian American character she could identify with. “Pepper Zhang, Artist Extraordinaire!” is our debut book that features a talented and strong-willed little Asian girl (who happens to be inspired by my daughter Madison). There aren’t enough children’s books currently that feature positive Asian children as the main characters or heroes of the story and Little Ning Books intends to change that! Please visit us at www.LittleNingBooks.com

Hello, as a backer of the Pepper Zhang: Artist Extraordinaire! A Children's Book, when can I expect my 3 books?
Good morning Jerry and co. My name's Kenneth Chiu, among many things I do, I'm also a community organizer and a top priority of mine's is to find ways, traditional and out of the box, to promote Asian / Asian American affairs in New York City and elsewhere. Those affairs include culturally, socially, politically, economically and pretty much anything that empowers Asians. I just read an article in Next Shark featuring your project and find it totally awesome and inspiring and would love to help. I'd love the opportunity to sit down with you and your team to understand more of the project and other works you might have down the line. You can contact me directly on my cell at (646) 330 - 8000 or via email at [email protected]. Thank you for you time and attention and a big thank you for going above and beyond for your children as well as other children that might feel pit of place.
Love what you're doing so had to write about you on Nextshark! :) Can't wait to get my copy of Pepper Zhang!
