Pinky, A Girl-Power Hero Book Review
Despite decades of advances in the woman’s movement, there are some who still believe
that girls are weaker or less smart than boys of the same age. Children’s author and
illustrator MJ Daley-Prado saw a need for a strong, young, female character and Pinky
fits the bill.
This empowering story is geared for audiences aged 4 to 9 and will also appeal to older
children. My four-year-old daughter and six-year-old son loved it! Pinky is well on her
way to becoming a bedtime favorite in our household. Pinky packs a wallop; both in the
boxing ring and in the book’s wonderful message. She isn’t afraid to do things her way;
i.e., streaking her blonde hair or concealing her identity in the championship match.
Don’t think of calling her a tomboy, as Pinky isn’t happy to copy the boys – she sets out
to beat them. Ignoring her Mom and Coaches’ warnings, Pinky enters the State Boxing
tournament to compete against the guys! Will she win? Can she overcome the doubters
and gain the crowd’s support?
You’ll have to pick up a copy to find out. Pinky’s message is clear and Prado’s beautiful
illustrations keep even the youngest reader’s interest peaked. Prado is the author of six
children’s books, including Grandma, What Is Cancer?
I highly recommend Pinky for early readers looking for a girl-power hero. Pinky K.
Henderson is a heroine who will entertain children and charm adults alike. 5 Stars
