    Strong Is the New Pretty is the kind of book I would’ve loved to have given to my younger self. It's a photographic celebration of girls being themselves, which in itself sounds incredible... I’m seriously tearing up just thinking about how much love I have for this collection. Reading it ...

    Along the lines of Humans of New York comes a book about girls. Gorgeous photos of slice of life of different girls from age 5-22, talking about their life, and what strong means to them. And strength just isn't about being physically strong, but about being mentally strong. It isn't just about play...

    Kate T. Parker is photographer who likes to photograph girls being a bit wild, a bit silly and does not care whether their faces are smeared in mud. With more than 170 photos to look at, the strength & beauty is the girls being 100% themselves.I love looking at photos like the ones in this book. Not...

    I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this book. Photographing her own daughters led the author to progress to photographing other fantastic young girls, all at their best, by which I mean playing sports, playing games, running, swimming, teaming up with friends or sisters. A few words are quoted from...

    Some of the pictures are really good, and the message is great but as the pages pass i started to feel that was so repetitive, as the matter of fact i like that i can see women with really different realities and socioeconomic state which give some perpective to a really exploited theme.Probably thi...

It feels like the product of love and dedication to create a collection of beautiful pictures that will inspire and comfort young girls and the young at heart.My one qualm is after a certain point it felt repetitiv...

    3.5 Stars. I enjoyed reading this. I thought that it was such a simple idea but it was still quite powerful to see all these girls just owning everything they did. I got quite emotional (yes, I tear up at everything) because it was so wonderful to see girls being messy, girls having fun, girls being...

    This was so exhilarating to read and look at the beautiful photography. I just wanted to high five all the girls in these pictures. Every girl should get a copy of this book. As we grow older as women, so many of us lose self confidence, self worth, our sense of adventure and become afraid of failin...

    The photos are amazing, the girls are absolutely incredible, a lot of the chapter introductions were good, too. I think my problem was that I couldn't find the little girl that I was--the fat girl, the bookworm. The girl that sat under the tree in the front yard and read books while her parents argu...

    I don't know why so many people gave this less stars, but they are bananas. The young women in Parker's book are inspirational. Strong is the New Pretty will live in my library for when I need to be reminded of what can be accomplished with strength, determination, and a little kindness....
