"A family welcomes their child into the world. As this gently rhyming story begins, expecting parents  prepare for the arrival of their baby. When the tan-skinned baby is born, the doting parents dress the child in a wide range of colors and outfits, from hair bows to frog-covered green jammies. Readers may find their assumptions about the baby’s gender shifting through illustrator Chomiak’s joyous cartoon art, which depicts the family’s everyday moments of connection and play. Rouanzion concludes by inviting readers to consider a “rainbow of choices, colorful and bright. / What feels best to you? / Which colors are right?”—a powerful message that children and adults alike can benefit from. Models easy, loving acceptance for kids, no matter their gender expression."
