For fans of A is for Activist! I wanted to share with all of you an empowering and educational picture book that proves colors are for everyone, regardless of gender: 

Pink is for Boys (Running Press; 6/5/2018; ISBN: 978-0762462476; 
Ages 4-8) by Robb Pearlman.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Pink is for boys…and girls…and everyone! 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. Featuring a diverse group of relatable characters, Pink Is for Boys invites and encourages girls and boys to enjoy what they love to do, whether it's racing cars and playing baseball, or loving unicorns and dressing up. Vibrant illustrations help children learn and identify the myriad colors that surround them every day, from the orange of a popsicle, to the green of a grassy field, all the way up to the wonder of a multicolored rainbow. 

Parents and kids will delight in Robb Pearlman's sweet, simple script, as well as its powerful message: life is not color-coded.




My rating: 5 of 5 stars

#FirstLine ~ Pink if for boys. And girls.

I loved this book so much. I love that it celebrates girls and boys loving all colors and not assigning them to a gender. My son loves pink and purple and gets teased for it. I always tell him to love what you love and to never feel like you have to explain it to anyone. This books is an important message for young ones, early on in life, to aid in explaining that girls and boys can love all the colors because all the colors make up this bright beautiful world we live in! This book is bursting with gorgeous and colorful illustration and simple yet delightful text. A must for early childhood classroom and for home libraries.
