Pink is for Boys Children’s Book Review
This book is so cute. It’s written in a style that’s entertaining and easy to understand. I like that the author has tried to combat gender stereotypes.
The illustrations are delightful, the story is sweet, simple and easy to read with a wonderful message. Every child’s bookshelf should have a copy of this book. You can pre-order Here
This summer, acclaimed children’s author Robb Pearlman delivers a timely message of acceptance and inclusion for kids ages 4-8 in Pink is for Boys
With the help of a diverse cast of characters, Pearlman takes readers through the entire spectrum of the rainbow – from pink party dresses to blue baseball uniforms, green grass to brown teddy bears – demonstrating to young readers that gender does not dictate their favorite color or beloved hobby: boys can wear pink and girls can drive racecars. Pearlman’s message is delivered in cheerful and accessible prose, paired with Kaban’s vibrant and endearing illustrations. Each page becomes increasingly colorful, teaching little ones their colors and culminating in a beautiful rainbow on the final page. Every scene invites imagination, as well as imparting this valuable lesson to children and parents alike.
Uplifting and empowering, Pink is for Boys inspires readers to color outside the lines.
