I just read over on ModernMom.com that Perez Hilton is coming out with a children’s book. Seriously. Apparently the book, which will be titled The Boy with Pink Hair, will “promote themes of individuality and acceptance.”
On the one hand, I have to say I’m all for teaching kids acceptance and respect early on. I applaud Perez for using his celebrity to bring attention to such an important topic.
However, let’s not overlook the obvious here. A book about acceptance coming from the guy who got rich writing mean gossip and putting lewd illustrations on people’s pictures. I’m not so sure I’m convinced.
What about you? Perez Hilton’s children’s book is slated to come out next fall–will you buy it?
If you are looking for a great book about acceptance and don’t want to wait for Perez’s book, check out My Princess Boy. It’s a real mom’s story about understanding and accepting her son.
