I thot this book was a wonderful way to show once more that love truly does make a family.
All the colors of the rainbow represent the diversity in the world around us. Why should we only be able to pick one, or maybe two colors... celebrate this diversity, don't teach our children to hate. We must teach them to accept all people for their many different attributes and in no way to shun them because they they may have two mommies, or two daddies, or just one mommy and no daddy, etc... children can be cruel to each other at such young ages. Parents do not need to fuel this behavior.
Please read your child this book and start them on the path to celebrating diversity. If this includes going to your annual pride parade, that's wonderful! The pride parade is becoming a great family event for our glbt community. It's turning into less and less of an event with topless grrl bikers and men in leather sm gear and becoming an exibit of the groups in the community that support each other and their families. It's truly a celebration of community acceptance and pride.
Hate is not a family value, please love your neighbors and read your children this beautiful book.
