About the Book

Deyanira García’s children’s book provides the answer to one of the most important questions girls usually have at many points in their lives, but are too afraid to ask: “What do pretty girls look like?”
In this beautiful and colorful book, your child will find herself traveling through the beauty of her being. This beautiful mother and daughter story is one of the best gifts we can give to our little girls. It was written in the hopes that they will use their beauty to continue the transformation process for generations to come.

About the Author

Deyanira García is a writer who uses the power of words to promote educational activism and to empower others, particularly women. Her mission is to express freely, without shame or guilt the social issues affecting our community through artistic expression in the hopes of inspiring a positive change. García’s first self-published book, Gritando en Silencio, which is in Spanish, tells us about real domestic violence stories told in the form of poetry and ends with a twist of hope. This book was later adapted for the stage by The Fantastic Experimental Latino Theater, Inc. under the Direction of Gloria Zelaya and Marisol Carrere. Her writing contributions can be found in the following Anthologies: Conversaciones by Mariana Romo-Carmona, and Divagaciones Bajo la Luna/Musing Under the Moon by Jacqueline Jimenez-Polanco. She was also a featured writer in “Pandoras” a ten women monologue play about being “Queer.” She has presented some of her lyrical and performance work at Yale and Brown University, Hostos Community College, New York City College of Technology, and various community organizations. The creation of Pretty Girls was born out of the need that García has to speak about the things that truly matter and that can help us live a better life. She believes that we should have these types of conversations with our daughters or the little girls in our lives, right from the beginning and continuously as they grow. Her lifelong goal is to influence the world with her writings and to educate the community by sharing her experiences in an artistic way. She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from John Jay College and currently works and lives in New York City.
