    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 ...

    This picture book tells the story of Harvey Milk and the creation of the rainbow flag as a symbol of gay pride. It is very informative and explains things in a manner that children can understand. The illustrations that accompany the text are vibrant and beautiful. This is a great addi...

    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. ...

    It's such an amazing thing to walk into a bookstore and see a children's book like this in existence. When I was growing up, a book of this type would never have been sold. It would never have even got to the point of publication because too many would have been afraid to let this mess...

    This latest addition to the great genre of picture book biography focuses on the life and death of Harvey Milk with a special focus on how the Rainbow Flag came to symbolize the movement. The book advocates for hope and tolerance in telling the story of this man and hi role in creating...

    The illustrations are exquisite, the history is imperative, the diversity is divine, and the narrative is terrific. There is only one thing I might change. There?s a page displaying the White House all lit up in rainbow colors, and I *very* much wanted the following page to say: ?T...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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?!?!? ...

    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 story gives a brief history of the Pride Flag and the people who created the idea and made it reality! It's a good story. If children are exposed to these stories, in this way, at a young age; I think there will be more acceptance when they are older. The negative comment I have i...

    This is a clear and attractive picture book biography of the first openly gay elected official in the U.S. It focuses on his idea to create a flag for the LGBTQ+ movement, and explains how the flag helped galvanize the movement when it debuted at the Gay Pride March of June 1978. Milk'...

    I thought this was a very appropriate and informative book for children about Harvey Milk and the rainbow flag. I think it provides the right amount of information at the right level for elementary school children. It is a great addition to a library collection. Great artwork. ...

    4 stars because I think this book and content are so needed and important. I wanted more though, as it feels very surface level. By being surface level, however, I suppose it creates a space that is more accessible to a wider audience. (I completely disagree with those who feel the con...

    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 ...

    Wonderful illustrations and story about Harvey Milk and how the pride flag came to be. I learned a lot I didn't know before! Shame about Harvey's assassination, along with the governor at the time, but I'm so happy that his hope, his dream, and the flag carried on to this day. I honest...

    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 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...

    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...

    Although I understand the importance of teaching children about history, hope and equality, the subject matter of this book talks about much more than that. It talks about Gay activism, assassination, LGBT terminology, Gay marriage legislation, and much more adult content than children...
