What would you do if your child came home crying because others didn't see them the same or think they were able to do the same things?

Meet Zoe and Kaitlin, two girls who love playing together. Their favourite game is dress-up and one day, the girls decide to be royals. Their playdate takes a turn when Kaitlyn refuses to let Zoe be the princess because she has never seen a princess like her before.

Zoe runs home, upset and confused, not realizing that she is about to embark on another amazing journey. This time, she will begin to discover some interesting things about princesses from the past. See how Zoe's parents, through kindness and understanding turn this disagreement between the girls into a teachable moment for them both.

As you read this story with your child, they will learn:

Our unique appearances do not limit what we can do or who we can beUnfair treatment can be handled in a kind and peaceful way We focus on the heart of the person, not what they look like

Join Zoe on her latest real adventure. You're sure to be warmed at heart by this lovely story of how people are more the same than we appear outside!
