Author: Cheryl Kilodavis

My Princess Boy by Cheryl Kilodavis promotes self-awareness, self-esteem, identity, resilience and acceptance.
Kilodavis wrote this book because of her younger sons experiences. The story is a lesson of acceptance and tolerance about a 4-year-old boy, teased because he loves wearing dresses and told boys should not wear them. “When we go shopping he is the happiest… And when he buys girls things they laugh at him and they laugh at me. It hurts us both.”
