    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 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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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" ...

    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 ...

    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. ...
