    For all those neigh sayers regarding the content of this book and not being appropriate for elementary age children...what better time to start teaching empathy, kindness, acceptance, understanding, and most importantly HUMAN RIGHTS than when one is young?!?!? ...

    This is an introduction Harvey Milk and the Pride flag. Harvey helped create hope for people who felt different in this country and who people thought it was ok to treat less than human. He encouraged the creation of the Pride flag by Gilbert Baker as a symbol of pride and hope. Th...

    While a more in depth biography of Harvey Milk is needed, this PB, focusing on the story behind the rainbow flag, which is representative of the LGBTQ community and movement for equal rights, is important to tell. No doubt there will be adults who wonder if this topic is "appropriate" ...

    Pride was a well written nonfiction picture book that will make an excellent addition to any level classroom library. The text and story are simple enough for even the youngest learners to follow and the story has opportunities for in depth discussions with older learners. This would b...

    What a wonderful way to introduce tiny humans to the world of Pride! Beautifully illustrated and of course a true story. I see this being my new go to gift for tiny humans. It's educational and real without being boring. There are notes and time line charts at the back for quick re...

    This was recommended somewhere but I cannot recall where or who. Speak up so I can credit you or forever hold your peace.... This is a book that will fill a gap in juvenile collections. We always need new biographies at the lower grade levels. This will help with that need. It also w...

    3.5 for this one. As another reviewer noted, this picture book doesn't really do justice to Harvey Milk who deserves a more substantial treatment in a future biography. But it does provide the background to the creation of the rainbow-hued Gay Pride Flag and the hope that it instills. ...

    This is a beautiful, kid-friendly biography about activist Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag he created with Gilbert Baker. It does mention that he was assassinated ("Their lives were taken by a man who did not think like Harvey, or feel like him, or love like him.") but it does not go ...

    Superficial both regarding Milk (about whom a good picture book biography is desperately needed) and the flag. ...

    The story of rainbow flag is, ironically, one of hope. Harvey Milk had a dream that one day everyone would have equality, even gay people. Working towards making that dream a reality, Harvey ran for became the first gay person elected to a political office, city supervisor in San Franc...

    I was looking for books about gay history at my local library when I stumbled across this! If I ever have kids this is one of the books I?m gunna read to them!! It?s super cute and still informative, even to me! I never knew the history of the pride flag so it was a great introduct...

    This accessible picture book introduces young readers to gay rights activist and the one of the first openly-gay elected officials in the U.S. Harvey Milk, the Rainbow Flag?s creation by artist Gilbert Baker, and the history of the gay rights movement in America. Sanders captures the...

    I?m so pleased there?s a children?s book about Harvey Milk and his role in creating the Pride flag. Appropriate that I read it on Harvey?s birthday, too. ...

    Such a beautiful book ...

    Great basic info about Harvey Milk and the origin of the Rainbow Flag. Would have liked to see in the additional information something about the different color's meanings. ...

    While I very much understand the value of imparting this history, this book is listed as being for 5-8 year olds. This is historical info that is beyond their scope at that age. Teaching this age range that some couples are a man and a woman, some are two men, and others are two women ...

    Thank you Mr. Sanders and Mr. Salerno. Well done. I'm very glad that libraries are carrying this book and making it available to LGBTQ+ parents and any other person that wishes to advance social justice. So many lives would have been saved if more these books could have been published ...

    Although this book depicts some historical accuracy, the content is not appropriate for a picture book meant for children. Topics and terms of LGBTQ, assassination, gay, protests, etc are not age appropriate for elementary children. ...

    This was a beautiful book. I did not realize the lives of Harvey Milk and the creator of the rainbow/pride flag (Gilbert Baker) were so connected. This is an outstanding book for young people to learn about one of the most prominent symbols for equality and the heroic life of Harvey Mi...

    I have a few minor issues with some artistic choices in this. Overall I liked the story and the art, however. ...

    This is such a breath of fresh air for the biography section. This is a step towards providing children with the ideas and thoughts that create equality and justice for all. ...

    Great introduction to Harvey Milk and his activism, the symbolism of the rainbow flag, and the gay pride movement. Anyone who says this book is inappropriate for schools (protests, assassination) should take a good, hard look at the fact that all of these topics are taught through the ...

    Beautiful. I am so happy this book is written and will keep dreams alive. This book will share the hope of Harvey Milk and countless others. ...

    Informative with beautiful, engaging illustrations that bring to life the history of the pride flag. This is not text heavy, so it makes a great story time read for kids with small attention spans. There is a more detailed section at the back of the book with a timeline and resources. ...

    A great bio for any kid to read. Be proud! ...

    This was interesting. I didn't know anything about the Rainbow Flag before reading it. It caught my eye in a book store, and as I'm trying to be more open-minded in the books I read, I picked it up. ...

    This book, as the title explains, tells the story of Harvey Milk and the creation of the rainbow flag. This book is enormously informative. From this book, I learned about Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay people to be elected to political office in the US. Harvey was in office ...

    This is a beautiful book that focuses on positives rather than negatives. Harvey Milk is famous for saying "You have to give them hope," and that is the recurring theme in this book as this book is meant to give hope to the current and future generations. Steven Salerno's illustrations...

    This biography is a good length for a read aloud. Straight forward, if somewhat simple account of Harvey Milk?s role in the creation of the pride flag. ...

    While I very much understand the value of imparting this history, this book is listed as being for 5-8 year olds. This is historical info that is beyond their scope at that age. Teaching this age range that some couples are a man and a woman, some are two men, and others are two women ...

    3.5 for this one. As another reviewer noted, this picture book doesn't really do justice to Harvey Milk who deserves a more substantial treatment in a future biography. But it does provide the background to the creation of the rainbow-hued Gay Pride Flag and the hope that it instills. ...

    Thank you Mr. Sanders and Mr. Salerno. Well done. I'm very glad that libraries are carrying this book and making it available to LGBTQ+ parents and any other person that wishes to advance social justice. So many lives would have been saved if more these books could have been published ...

    Although this book depicts some historical accuracy, the content is not appropriate for a picture book meant for children. Topics and terms of LGBTQ, assassination, gay, protests, etc are not age appropriate for elementary children. ...

    Beautiful. I am so happy this book is written and will keep dreams alive. This book will share the hope of Harvey Milk and countless others. ...

    Informative with beautiful, engaging illustrations that bring to life the history of the pride flag. This is not text heavy, so it makes a great story time read for kids with small attention spans. There is a more detailed section at the back of the book with a timeline and resources. ...

    A great bio for any kid to read. Be proud! ...

    This book, as the title explains, tells the story of Harvey Milk and the creation of the rainbow flag. This book is enormously informative. From this book, I learned about Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay people to be elected to political office in the US. Harvey was in office ...

    This is a beautiful book that focuses on positives rather than negatives. Harvey Milk is famous for saying "You have to give them hope," and that is the recurring theme in this book as this book is meant to give hope to the current and future generations. Steven Salerno's illustrations...

    This biography is a good length for a read aloud. Straight forward, if somewhat simple account of Harvey Milk?s role in the creation of the pride flag. ...

    This was recommended somewhere but I cannot recall where or who. Speak up so I can credit you or forever hold your peace.... This is a book that will fill a gap in juvenile collections. We always need new biographies at the lower grade levels. This will help with that need. It also w...

    3.5 for this one. As another reviewer noted, this picture book doesn't really do justice to Harvey Milk who deserves a more substantial treatment in a future biography. But it does provide the background to the creation of the rainbow-hued Gay Pride Flag and the hope that it instills. ...

    This is a beautiful, kid-friendly biography about activist Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag he created with Gilbert Baker. It does mention that he was assassinated ("Their lives were taken by a man who did not think like Harvey, or feel like him, or love like him.") but it does not go ...

    Superficial both regarding Milk (about whom a good picture book biography is desperately needed) and the flag. ...

    The story of rainbow flag is, ironically, one of hope. Harvey Milk had a dream that one day everyone would have equality, even gay people. Working towards making that dream a reality, Harvey ran for became the first gay person elected to a political office, city supervisor in San Franc...

    I was looking for books about gay history at my local library when I stumbled across this! If I ever have kids this is one of the books I?m gunna read to them!! It?s super cute and still informative, even to me! I never knew the history of the pride flag so it was a great introduct...

    This accessible picture book introduces young readers to gay rights activist and the one of the first openly-gay elected officials in the U.S. Harvey Milk, the Rainbow Flag?s creation by artist Gilbert Baker, and the history of the gay rights movement in America. Sanders captures the...

    I?m so pleased there?s a children?s book about Harvey Milk and his role in creating the Pride flag. Appropriate that I read it on Harvey?s birthday, too. ...

    Such a beautiful book ...

    Great basic info about Harvey Milk and the origin of the Rainbow Flag. Would have liked to see in the additional information something about the different color's meanings. ...

    While I very much understand the value of imparting this history, this book is listed as being for 5-8 year olds. This is historical info that is beyond their scope at that age. Teaching this age range that some couples are a man and a woman, some are two men, and others are two women ...

    Thank you Mr. Sanders and Mr. Salerno. Well done. I'm very glad that libraries are carrying this book and making it available to LGBTQ+ parents and any other person that wishes to advance social justice. So many lives would have been saved if more these books could have been published ...

    Although this book depicts some historical accuracy, the content is not appropriate for a picture book meant for children. Topics and terms of LGBTQ, assassination, gay, protests, etc are not age appropriate for elementary children. ...

    This was a beautiful book. I did not realize the lives of Harvey Milk and the creator of the rainbow/pride flag (Gilbert Baker) were so connected. This is an outstanding book for young people to learn about one of the most prominent symbols for equality and the heroic life of Harvey Mi...

    I have a few minor issues with some artistic choices in this. Overall I liked the story and the art, however. ...

    This is such a breath of fresh air for the biography section. This is a step towards providing children with the ideas and thoughts that create equality and justice for all. ...

    Great introduction to Harvey Milk and his activism, the symbolism of the rainbow flag, and the gay pride movement. Anyone who says this book is inappropriate for schools (protests, assassination) should take a good, hard look at the fact that all of these topics are taught through the ...

    Beautiful. I am so happy this book is written and will keep dreams alive. This book will share the hope of Harvey Milk and countless others. ...

    Informative with beautiful, engaging illustrations that bring to life the history of the pride flag. This is not text heavy, so it makes a great story time read for kids with small attention spans. There is a more detailed section at the back of the book with a timeline and resources. ...

    This is an introduction Harvey Milk and the Pride flag. Harvey helped create hope for people who felt different in this country and who people thought it was ok to treat less than human. He encouraged the creation of the Pride flag by Gilbert Baker as a symbol of pride and hope. Th...

    While a more in depth biography of Harvey Milk is needed, this PB, focusing on the story behind the rainbow flag, which is representative of the LGBTQ community and movement for equal rights, is important to tell. No doubt there will be adults who wonder if this topic is "appropriate" ...

    Pride was a well written nonfiction picture book that will make an excellent addition to any level classroom library. The text and story are simple enough for even the youngest learners to follow and the story has opportunities for in depth discussions with older learners. This would b...

    What a wonderful way to introduce tiny humans to the world of Pride! Beautifully illustrated and of course a true story. I see this being my new go to gift for tiny humans. It's educational and real without being boring. There are notes and time line charts at the back for quick re...

    This was recommended somewhere but I cannot recall where or who. Speak up so I can credit you or forever hold your peace.... This is a book that will fill a gap in juvenile collections. We always need new biographies at the lower grade levels. This will help with that need. It also w...

    3.5 for this one. As another reviewer noted, this picture book doesn't really do justice to Harvey Milk who deserves a more substantial treatment in a future biography. But it does provide the background to the creation of the rainbow-hued Gay Pride Flag and the hope that it instills. ...

    This is a beautiful, kid-friendly biography about activist Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag he created with Gilbert Baker. It does mention that he was assassinated ("Their lives were taken by a man who did not think like Harvey, or feel like him, or love like him.") but it does not go ...

    Superficial both regarding Milk (about whom a good picture book biography is desperately needed) and the flag. ...

    The story of rainbow flag is, ironically, one of hope. Harvey Milk had a dream that one day everyone would have equality, even gay people. Working towards making that dream a reality, Harvey ran for became the first gay person elected to a political office, city supervisor in San Franc...

    I was looking for books about gay history at my local library when I stumbled across this! If I ever have kids this is one of the books I?m gunna read to them!! It?s super cute and still informative, even to me! I never knew the history of the pride flag so it was a great introduct...

    This accessible picture book introduces young readers to gay rights activist and the one of the first openly-gay elected officials in the U.S. Harvey Milk, the Rainbow Flag?s creation by artist Gilbert Baker, and the history of the gay rights movement in America. Sanders captures the...

    I?m so pleased there?s a children?s book about Harvey Milk and his role in creating the Pride flag. Appropriate that I read it on Harvey?s birthday, too. ...

    Such a beautiful book ...

    Great basic info about Harvey Milk and the origin of the Rainbow Flag. Would have liked to see in the additional information something about the different color's meanings. ...

    While I very much understand the value of imparting this history, this book is listed as being for 5-8 year olds. This is historical info that is beyond their scope at that age. Teaching this age range that some couples are a man and a woman, some are two men, and others are two women ...

    Thank you Mr. Sanders and Mr. Salerno. Well done. I'm very glad that libraries are carrying this book and making it available to LGBTQ+ parents and any other person that wishes to advance social justice. So many lives would have been saved if more these books could have been published ...

    Although this book depicts some historical accuracy, the content is not appropriate for a picture book meant for children. Topics and terms of LGBTQ, assassination, gay, protests, etc are not age appropriate for elementary children. ...

    This was a beautiful book. I did not realize the lives of Harvey Milk and the creator of the rainbow/pride flag (Gilbert Baker) were so connected. This is an outstanding book for young people to learn about one of the most prominent symbols for equality and the heroic life of Harvey Mi...

    I have a few minor issues with some artistic choices in this. Overall I liked the story and the art, however. ...
