A concept board book uses the rainbow Pride flag to teach young children about colors. Rhyming text identifies each color followed by a loving and affirming statement directed at the child audience. (“A bright red heart, a little star. I love you just the way you are.”) Full-page photographs of racially diverse children, either alone or in the arms of their LGBTQ+ parents, accompany the text. The final rhyme mentions Pride Day by name opposite a photograph of a child wearing a rainbow tutu and carrying a tiny Pride flag. More than simply being inclusive, this book celebrates and embraces LGBTQ+ families. A page of back matter offers a brief explanation of Pride Day and lists the meaning of each color of the flag. ©2020 Cooperative Children’s Book Center
