This is a sponsored post all thoughts expressed are my own.

The day we announced to our boys we would be welcoming a girl into our family our conversations immediately turned to what will have to change around here. There would be a little girl to think about, to protect and to make feel special in every way. We would need to tone down the boy parts talk and think about how we would each be a part of raising and building up a little girl to become a strong, goal reaching Latina. ELENA OF AVALOR came into our lives at the perfect time. I didn’t realize how much we needed a Latina Disney Princess to connect with in our own way. A Latina Disney princess resonated with my five and seven year old like I don’t think another could. 

Adding a Latina to the Disney Princess family, reminds my family that we are all special no matter what cultural background we have. The diversity of seeing a Latina Disney Princess helps us resonate with the idea that we can all be whatever it is we want to be, even a princess. 


What A Latina Disney Princess Means To My Family 

The story book Elena and the Secret of Avalor arrived at our doorstep and appropriately became Miesha’s first book. The boys and I read it aloud to her before nap time some days. The story is about Princess Elena from the kingdom of Avalor and how she is magically trapped inside an enchanted amulet. She awaits another princess to set her free. The newest Disney princess story takes you on a magical adventure into her world.

About Elena of Avalor

“The fable, set in an unspecified time period, incorporates influences from diverse Latin and Hispanic cultures. It introduces Elena as a brave and adventurous teenager who saves her kingdom from an evil sorceress and must now learn to rule as crown princess until she is old enough to be queen. Elena’s journey will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders.”
