I had discussed my previous post with Lil Sprout and she was proud to show me her bookstore find. We didn’t purchase Pink is for Boys because it was too young for her but that doesn’t mean we can’t share some love for it!
Pink is for Boys, by Robb Pearlmann (Author) and Eda Kaban (Illustrator) available at:
Why should you get this book? The story is simple and sweet. The illustrations show diverse characters and have vibrant colours. I like the publisher’s description: “This timely and beautiful picture book rethinks and reframes the stereotypical blue/pink gender binary and empowers kids-and their grown-ups-to express themselves in every color of the rainbow.” ~ Running Press
