Las Princesas Más Valientes
The book feels modern in its references and social cornerstones while retaining a classic, elegant style thanks to Wimmer's gorgeous portraits of the princesses in their crowns, each facing a page of that princess in action. Brown and Wimmer use diversity not only to highlight important differences among people, but also to show how these unique traits and interests allow every princess to choose her own path. If every girl is a little princess, this book shows that to keep that crown requires only finding things to love in life and pursuing them. Kirkus Star Review and BEST BOOKS OF 2018
There's a princess closer than you think. You just have to open your eyes and your heart wide.
Don't expect your typical fairytale princesses inside this book. These princesses are neighbors, schoolmates, the cashier at your supermarket, a lawyer, an architect... The Truly Brave Princesses will help you realize that, if you watch closely, princesses are all around you, and they are brave, caring and determined.

About the Author
There is plenty to enjoy, as each page opening presents information and detailed, whimsical art showing the princess and her world. The art is lush, using a warm palette, and the settings are both exotic and familiar, with a European feel. I can see a wide age range appreciating this book. Read it aloud to kids ages 4-6. Older ones will enjoy imagining themselves doing all the wonderful things these princesses do as they read the book on their own.
A book that celebrates diversity and teaches little girls that princesses don't just belong into fairytales. Author Dolores Brown shows that very few women resemble the perfect picture of a princess tales and movies represent. Real-life-princesses come in all shape and sizes, colors and sexual orientations: The girl in a wheelchair, the child with down syndrome, the elderly widow, the working mother and the lawyer helping to make the world a better place are just a few example of every day princesses around us. Some of them even don't want to be called a princess - like astronaut Zoe, who retired her princess some time ago and now travels through distant space. The artwork by German illustrator Sonja Wimmer is truly amazing. She gives every princess a unique personality by using colorful watercolor images on a slightly structured background. I am not one for ripping pages out of a book, but I almost thought about framing her images! The Reading Castle

Brown's inclusive message is full-hearted and genuine. Publishers Weekly
I have never seen anyone with Down Syndrome ever celebrated in this manner before. Plus the writing is really fun. Better check it out. Fuse8
