Don’t let their size and innocent expressions fool you—these
little piggies bring in big smiles. The teacup pigs of Pennywell Farm in Devon,
England, are always ready to pose for the camera, and they are the perfect
diminutive subjects for this diminutive calendar. A sweet black-and-white
mottled pig snuggling with a lamb. A spotted pig surrounded by peonies bigger
than his head. And a holiday mise-en-scène: a pig in a Santa hat in front of a
Christmas tree. Perfectly sized for a locker, fridge, or cubicle, Pocket
Pigs Mini Calendar adds yearlong
cuteness to any small space.
Fearless, wild, confident, kind, independent—a photographic
celebration of girls ages 5 to 18 being their authentic selves. Photographer
Kate T. Parker captures girls in all their creative, fierce, loud, silly glory.
Adapted from the book of the same name, Strong Is the New Pretty
Calendar is a perfect
present for daughters, nieces, sisters, coaches, mentors, teachers, and
friends—what’s better than enriching young minds with the gift of confidence?
Each month features a girl who embodies the beauty in being resilient, brave,
and hardworking—from dancers to fencers, from musicians to gardeners, from
student body presidents to soccer players. Each masterfully shot photo (in both
color and black and white) is paired with an inspiring quote from the subjects
themselves. Like Tayla, age 6, a backyard adventurer: “Yeah, I am a little
muddy. So, what?” And Carlie, age 12, a football player: “If you’re strong on
the inside, it means nobody can break you down.”
