Do you ever wonder if princesses…

  • climb trees?
  • eat vegetables?
  • play in the dirt?
  • wear torn jeans and a messy old shirt?

At the heart of Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? lives an energetic, spirited, and contemporary child with lots of important questions. Each two-page spread has a one-line question facing the mother’s one-line response. Gordon’s whimsical pastel paintings are a good match for the playful text. The mother’s voice is reassuring as she advises the little girl that princess-like qualities are found on the inside. This book offers a lesson in self-acceptance, and will inspire children to follow their dreams and leave their own uinque footprint, be it from a muddy boot or ballerina slipper.
