Dr. Rachel Kowert: Pragmatic Princess



This episode of Big Blend Radio features research psychologist and award-winning author Dr. Rachel Kowert who presents tales of empowerment and self-reliance in her children’s book, “Pragmatic Princess: 26 Superb Stories of Self-Sufficiency.” Her upcoming picture book series, “Tales from Cloud Canyon,” celebrates the everyday child, doing everyday things, with their everyday abilities for ages 3 and up. Listen to her interview here in the YouTube player or download the podcast on PodBean, or SoundCloud.


Inspired by her own frustration as a mother seeking reading content featuring female leads who weren’t superheroes or male-companion dependent, “Pragmatic Princess” offers stories of everyday girls, solving everyday problems, with their everyday abilities. And the 26 stories represent children of all backgrounds, abilities and family types – each with a distinct personality – from Winnie the Wise who says, “…we are the ones who make our dreams come true, not other people, in the end it is up to you” to Xena the Xenial who reminds us, “We have so much to learn from one another, but only if we can listen to each other.”  More: https://buildyourowncastle.com/
