Review for This Day In June

Review for This Day In June

It is Banned Books Week, and I am reading Challenged/Banned books. This is the second book for this week.

This book was challenged due to it being about gay, about being pride and proud.

It was quite a fun read, and it was fun to read about how Pride Parade/Celebration are done in the US. And that is what the book is about, nothing more and nothing less, it is all about a Pride Parade/Celebration. What goes on in them, what you can expect (or well what one can expect from one kind of Pride Parade as there are certainly differences between various Pride Parades/Celebrations). From dancing people, to motorcycles (I would love to see that one), to people dressing up, to people being happy about being out.

Every page has a little rhyme which fits the scene. The rhymes are a bit simple, but I can forgive that, they were fun and I am sure this will definitely make kids understand and enjoy the book more.

The art is really great, then again, that is expected as it is illustrated by Kristyna Litten. I just adore her art! There is just so much going on in the pictures, so many details, so much love and colour!

Yep, I would definitely recommend this one. It was fun, it was colourful, and it shows kids what one may just expect at a Pride Parade/Celebration.
