Kids don’t need to love the color pink to enjoy this sweet story -- but it sure helps. Violet is immediately empathetic, both in her excitement for the Pink Girls Pink-nik and her devastation when it looks like her plans are ruined. Her father's patience with her disappointment, and his willingness to set dignity aside and turn the misadventure into a creative celebration, is a terrific example for families. Rather than make the hard case that boys can like pink just as much as girls, Charice Mericle Harper finds a way for the pink and the not-so-pink to happily share some common ground.

Wide-eyed, buck-toothed rabbits bound through cartoon pages decorated with just the right amount of pink.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
