"Man up. Boys don’t cry. Tough it out. These are phrases virtually every boy hears at some point during his life. For generations, we have taught our boys the most important trait they can have is to be stoic and unemotional—and traits that do not fit that mold should be suppressed.
THE HEART OF A BOY challenges this notion. Filled with powerful, moving photographs accompanied by thoughtful quotes from each subject, it celebrates the the many ways there are to be a boy - the sensitive and the strong, the creative and the silly, the kind and the curious. Meet Mason, age 6, who pronounces “I like to try new things. I believe in myself.” Matias, age 9, who exclaims “It’s not about what you look like, it’s about your heart.” And Ryan, age 7, who says “I want to be president because I am helpful, kind, and nice."
