“Awash in messages of love and the celebration of individuality... A rare treat for both Pride Day and everyday sharing.”—School Library Journal, starred review

★ "A good thing comes in a small, rainbow package...A joyful, affirming, pride-filled read."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

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.

Celebrated author Robin Stevenson ends her purposeful prose by explaining the meaning behind each color in the Pride flag: red = life, orange = healing, yellow = sunlight, green = nature, blue = peace and harmony, and violet = spirit.

"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."

"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."
