Description

Through gentle rhymes and colorful photographs of adorable children, Pride Colors is a celebration of the deep unconditional love of a parent or caregiver for a young child. The profound message of this delightful board book is you are free to be whoever you choose to be; you'll always be loved.

Celebrated author Robin Stevenson ends her purposeful prose by explaining the meaning behind each color in the Pride flag: red = life, orange = healing, yellow = sunlight, green = nature, blue = peace and harmony, and violet = spirit.

Editorial Reviews

"Affirming phrases remind adults reading the text (and ensure those listening) that no matter what, they are loved and accepted and are recognized within the open-ended nature of the flag. Along with Richard Van Camp's Welcome Song for Baby and Sarah Yi-Mei Tsiang's Toesy Toes Pride Colors is a declaration of human difference and resilience in the face of so much adversity seen around the world today."

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"Parents will enjoy reading Stevenson's loving words as much as children will enjoy the uplifting statements, gentle rhythms, and bright photos of children (and a few parents) on the pages…A delightful addition to the small number of LGBTQ-inclusive board books and to young children's books celebrating LGBTQ history and Pride."

— Mombian blog

★ "Awash in messages of love and the celebration of individuality, this dual concept book highlights LGBTQIA+ families in a positive, glittery light. A rare treat for both Pride Day and everyday sharing. Essential for all libraries serving young children and their caregivers."
