We enjoyed Pink is for Boys by Robb Pearlman and illustrated by Eda Kaban the first time and decided to revisit again. This story is told with a sentence per page and shares different colors are for anyone who wants to wear and embrace them. It also identifies objects in our lives that can be the color being discussed. After our first read, our discussion centered around girls being able to wear blue and boys wearing pink. After our second read our ideas grew.
C – “All colors are for everybody.”
G – “They can have their own opinion and wear colors they like.”
M – ” Don’t judge colors and what people like and you should be okay with that.”
N – “Be who you are or be who you want to be.”
E – “This book shows kindness and includes you don’t have to agree with someone else.”
