Really awesome board book on the colours of the updated pride flag! There's a different artist for each colour and they're all amazing.

I love that there's already books and things with the added black and brown to show inclusiveness and diversity. I wish that it was the flag for Pride worldwide.
This board book explains the different colors of the Pride flag to kids -- though it doesn't actually name it as the Pride flag (just "our rainbow flag"). It mostly talks about themes and doesn't explicitly talk about gender/sexuality, but multiple spreads include apparently same-gender couples, and the Red spread has a person with long hair, a full beard, and a dress, full in the center \o/

It's the Philadelphia version -- so it has brown+black but no pink or indigo -- but it does retain the

I was perusing the board book section of our library and picked up books on colours. Saw this (thought colours) and wondered why black and brown were included in the rainbow and not pink. Shrugged and popped it into the stroller to check out. Got home and started reading it to The Little Burrito and didn't realize until the last page that it was made with GLAAD.

I thought this was just beautifully written about loving and accepting the similarities and difference of people and what each colour

This is a lively, bold, and easy introduction to the concept of the pride flag for a little one. The colors are used to vividly bring together the ideas represented making it easy to make connections for a young child. A great read for anyone who wants to lay a solid foundation for teaching their child to appreciate others and themselves for their uniqueness and similarities.

All the colors of the Pride rainbow, including black and brown. Each color is illustrated by a different artist and has it's own meaning. I appreciate the sentiment, though not all of the art was to my taste.

I really like all the different artists contributing to make this book a whole and the updated pride flag.

Wish there was more or a story written in/ ending.. it just sort of ends.

Regardless, I like that this exists!

This is one of the best board books I've read in a long time. The artwork is absolutely stunning. The explanation of each of the colors of the LGBTQIA+ rainbow is clear, concise, and so very poetic/lyrical. I cannot recommend this one enough!
