à Pink! á Download by ß Lynne Rickards Very nice book for kids its about a little penguin Patrick who wakes up one day to find himself turned PINK.
He is worried about it because BOYS CANT BE PINK The story is about how he feels like a misfit, how his friends tease him at school and how he goes away to Africa to be with pink flamingos But he finds that he has nothing in common with them other than the color and decides to go back home to the south pole By now his friends have started missing him and are used to the fact that he is pink in color.
I love the book because it teaches kids that you dont have to be just like othersyou can be different and its perfectly fine.
It shows how parents can support kids and create a warm environment where kids can discuss their problems and know that they always have a loving home to come home to And it teaches kids how to accept others for who they are despite size, color, shape etc.
All kids should read this This book was pretty good my second graders seemed to enjoy this book as a read aloud this past week It teaches students about self acceptance, among other things.
Poor Patrick is most disconcerted when he wakes up pink one morning, making him look very different to his penguin friends He desperately wants to fit in so travels across the sea to meet a group of flamingos but although his colour blends in , he realises he isn t cut out to be a flamingo His friends have missed him so greet his homecoming with delight Patrick decides that being different isn t so bad after all Lovely gentle story about finding your own identity and embracing your uniqueness, with the help of your family and friends.
I thought this book gave Pink is only for girls a slap in the face Even though the penguin isn t happy to be pink and attempts to run away to be with flamingos, he found out his story made pink cool This is a subliminal message for how some students who are still figuring out their sexuality might feel like trying to be in a group may not prove whats best for them Very nice book for kids its about a little penguin Patrick who wakes up one day to find himself turned PINK.
