Don’t Call Me Princess

We rated this book:


Don’t Call Me Princess by Kate Evans is perhaps the most feminist children’s book I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Our author guides us back through all the fairy tales we grew up with and read to our little girls and reminds just how much power we have to make a difference and save ourselves.

As a teenager, I enjoyed this book immensely and I couldn’t agree more with it’s feminist and equality views. However, I do not think this book should have been geared toward children. The content slanders the stories that little girls still love at those ages and should be kept for when they are older and starting to realize life usually isn’t a fairy tale. This book would be a great tool for parents/guardians when having those conversations. Finally, while I loved the rhyming in the book, I noticed it didn’t flow very well. It still seemed choppy and some words out of place. Regardless, this book was a very fun and fresh reminder that I don’t need a prince to save me; I can save myself. “I’m not waiting for Prince Charming, scared I’ll end up on the shelf. I’ll write my own happy ending, and I think I’ll save myself.”
