An empowering and educational picture book that proves colors are for everyone, regardless of gender. Pink is for boys . . . and girls . . . and everyone!
I agree with the message and like Kaban’s nice illustration work, but there’s not really a story to enjoy.
My oldest son loved pink when he was little. When he went to kindergarten he started to learn the stereotypes of “boy” and “girl” colors. This is a nice book that demonstrates that “all the colors are for everyone.”
