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.

Editorial Reviews

"Stevenson captures the essence of Pride...an expansive celebration with room for all who love and cherish others."

— Publishers Weekly

"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

"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

★ "A good thing comes in a small, rainbow package...A joyful, affirming, pride-filled read."

— Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ "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."

— School Library Journal, starred review

“Parents and educators will want a copy of this book for their library. Both the text and photographs show the beauty of all people of this world and the importance of sharing our love with everyone.”
