Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away with Another Spoon Coloring Book

Hold onto your hats Heather’s mommies…. Watch out Uncle Watzit and Uncle Whozit… there’s a new coloring book in town and Pat Robertson ain’t gonna like it one bit.

We have the power to change fairy tales and nursery rhymes so that these stories are more realistic. In Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away With Another Spoon you will find anecdotes of real kids’ lives and true-to-life fairy tale characters. This book pushes us beyond rigid gender expectations while we color fantastic beasts who like pretty jewelry and princesses who build rocket ships.

Celebrate sensitive boys, tough girls, and others who do not fit into a disempowering gender categorization.

Sometimes the Spoon…aids the work of dismantling the Princess Industrial Complex by moving us forward with more honest representations of our children and ourselves. Color to your heart’s content. Laugh along with the characters. Write your own fairy tales. Share your own truths.
