But celebrity status aside, at the end of the day, this mom of two struggles with the same child rearing issues that the rest of us do. One in particular is making sure that her young daughter has the confidence to overcome gender stereotypes and to recognize the importance of self-expression. Their book follows the brave young Princess Penelope Pineapple as she navigates through her adventurous adolescent life, piloting, skateboarding, gardening, and more, decked out in an impressive collection of pantaloons. Of course she proves everyone wrong when she out-braves the prince and saves a drowning kitty in distress, something she would not have been able to do were she weighed down by a heavy ball gown. And while the story is fictional, the premise of a girl being bullied or discouraged due to her gender sounds all too plausible a story. Luckily Guthrie has some choice advice if her young daughter finds herself in this situation. But if she encounters this, I will tell her to just smile - and then get going on whatever bold, daring, kind, thoughtful, interesting or innovative thing she has set her mind to!
