This day in June…
Parade starts soon…
In a wildly whimsical, validating, and exuberant reflection of the LGBT community, This Day In June welcomes readers to experience a pride celebration and share in a day when we are all united.
Also included is a Reading Guide chock-full of facts about LGBT history and culture, as well as a Note to Parents and Caregivers with information on how to talk to children about sexual orientation and gender identity in age-appropriate ways.
This Day In June is an excellent tool for teaching respect, acceptance, and understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
"A beautifully illustrated, and beautifully explained, look at Pride through the eyes of a child. The book ends with the words, "This day in June, we're all united!" an inspiring message that should be just as uplifting for adults as it is affirming for youth'
Philadelphia Gay News
"This Day In June adds a bright spot for diversity on any bookshelf, and will help bring the true colours and beautiful experience of LGBT pride to life for school age children and their families."
Ellen Kahn, Director of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Family Project.
"Pitman, in her first book for children, salutes the LGBT parades that take place across the U.S. in June. Her couplets keep things marching steadily forward, but it's Litten's artwork that creates a sense of joyous excitement and showcases the diversity on display."
"This Day in June is the pride parade picture book queer parents have been waiting for since, oh, 1970. We've needed something that captured the joy and exuberance of the event, and something that helped kids picture the glorious range of gender expression and queer fabulousness that is so righteously on display at Pride (and by contrast so absent in most of our kids' everyday lives). We've wanted a sweet, playful opportunity to talk in advance about what they'll see, what it'll be like. We've wanted to help them get as excited as we do, in anticipation, and have a way to share it with their friends."
