15 Books Perfect For Girls Who Love Princesses and Parents Who Hate Them

Last week I wrote about how I am not a big believer in the whole hate on princesses idea. I loved them when I was a girl — my kids love them now and we’re totally fine. I don’t believe that believing in fairy tale books that my kids know are not real has any negative effect on them because I am raising them — not these stories. But you know, to each their own. There are some things I dislike that others don’t agree with too.

So, if you hate princess books but your kids love them — there are some options for you. Some great stories with “non-typical” princesses kicking butt that both your kids and self will enjoy.
