Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 7, 2006
The Princess Briana fairytale is one of the few children's books and the only princess story on the market that addresses the many self-esteem issues facing millions of young girls of all races according to child psychologists. "Princess Briana's positive reinforcement of non-traditional aspects of beauty is encouraging to all girls who struggle with not looking like the women on national magazine covers and the women in the music videos. The Princess Briana fairy-tale is fun as well as inspirational. This book is a valuable asset in the fight against negative self-worth and I highly recommend that this book be given to all young girls. I purchased Princess Briana for my granddaughters, nieces, and grandnieces which they all thoroughly enjoyed" said psychologist, Jennifer Penn.
Many young girls can relate with the main character's struggle to attain society's idea of beauty. The numbers for girls in this country with a negative body image and poor self-esteem are growing exponentially. Recent studies have shown that 42 percent of first-, second- and third-grade girls want to be thinner; that 40 percent of almost 500 fourth-graders surveyed said they diet "very often" or "sometimes"; and that 46 percent of 9-year-olds and 81 percent of 10-year-olds admit to dieting, binge eating or having a fear of getting fat, according to the Harvard Eating Disorders Center in Boston. A recent study by the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty revealed that 9 out of 10 girls want to change at least one aspect of their appearance.
Many fairy tales just entertain without any real substance. The Princess Briana fairy tale deals with some very heavy issues and still manages to be very entertaining. The author, Mr. Yaba Baker, used a unique combination of current problems facing young girls and the classic fairy tale format to create a book that is making a positive connection with thousands of girls across the country. "I highly recommend that Princess Briana become a must read at every grade level and beyond, by all children, regardless of gender, competency level and/or race" said psychologist, Monica Moment.
