My Shadow is Pink
Written and Illustrated by Scott Stuart (he/him)
My Shadow Is Pink is a rhyming story that touches on the subjects of gender identity, self acceptance, equality and diversity. Inspired by the author’s own child, the main character, assigned male at birth, likes princesses, fairies and things “not for boys.” He soon learns (through the support of his dad) that everyone has a shadow that they sometimes feel they need to hide, but when safe and respected, can be expressed and celebrated. This book exemplifies the concepts of unconditional love, respect and positive parenting.
