Are you looking for a great Christmas gift – all while supporting a great cause!? 

Not just a Princess is a culturally diverse and inclusive book series aimed at empowering young girls to be anything they want to be. The series was originally created by Dublin dad-of-one Gavin Leonard after he searched for empowering stories to read to his then 2-year-old daughter, Jade. What he found was limited and so he decided to create his own army of princesses for his daughter. Each princess has a unique set of skills and, along with her animal sidekick, helps people to solve problems. The concept behind the books is to highlight strong role models for young girls and boys and to break away from traditional gender stereotypes with stories that are made for everyone.

The latest in his series of books features ‘Nora’, a young girl with Down syndrome, who is a Special Olympics athlete and lifeguard.

This beautifully illustrated adventure sees Princess Jade with new friend Nora work together to save the Special Olympics – a must-have Christmas stocking filler that will be sure to inspire and delight all ages!

Purchase your copy of ‘Not Just a Princess – Jade’s Fan-tastic Adventure’ here, proceeds from sales to be donated to Down Syndrome Ireland and Special Olympics Ireland.

Support two great causes and spread inclusion and awareness this Christmas!
