Review

"I wish, when I was young, I had a book as touching and beautiful as this to teach me about the journey of self-acceptance." - Lady Gaga
"When I was little my mother once said to me, 'Cher, different is just another word for special.' My mother was right and so is Perez. This is an adorable tale full of whimsy and meaning!" - Cher
"A story that will resonate with any child who has ever felt weird or different. (It's a) wonderful way to tell our children it's important to celebrate each other's differences and the things that make each child unique and special." - Gloria Estefan
." . . A beautiful story about dignity, self-esteem, and the importance of parents' unconditional love. The social healing process begins when we focus on these values when raising our children." - Ricky Martin
." . . A precious little story about being special, being accepting, understanding, tolerant and above all saying it's okay to be different." - Dolly Parton

the boy with pink hair is a fantastic book, with beautiful, fun, cute illustrations. the story is great, the lesson is clear and the art is perfect. my 2 and a half year old daughter was instantly drawn to it, and instantly understood the importance of appreciating 'just being different'. now she frequently asks to read the boy with pink hair, and especially loves the pink feast he creates! this is a lesson in tolerance each of us needs to learn at as early an age as possible.

I want to love it, but the writing is pretty meh. I got this book to add to our small library of books about people who are different, and accepting differences, etc. And the message is sort of in this book, in a roundabout way, but the writing is pretty mind numbing. Most characters don't have names, they're referred to by long titles, i.e. The Boy with Pink Hair, and The Girl with Pony Tails, and The Boy with a Bad Attitude. The flow of the writing is difficult sometimes - it feels tedious to me to read it. But my 7 year old daughter loves this book. It's often one that she pulls off her shelf before bed to read to herself. But it's the one that I dread when she brings it to me to read to her!

First of all, this is brave. In today's world, we do not accept young boys who are flamboyant, proud and "pink." This pink is symbolism for being different, being unique, being YOURSELF. What kind of kid's books are out there that hint that being a gay man may be ah- okay? Well now they have one. And those kids who relate to this pink haired boy will find freedom and will remember that message when they are going through hard times. I RESPECT THIS WORK.

IF YOU ARE JUDGING THE AUTHOR AND NOT THE WORK THAN YOU ARE BEING JUST AS CADDY AS YOU CLAIM THIS PERSON TO BE.

I love what the book is trying to say, however, as a teacher I think some of the sentences may be too difficult for children to read. If the sentences were simpler, I would have given this book 5 stars.

It's great for teaching children about self-worth and tolerance of others. Definitely worth buying and sharing with your children or students...You may have to read it to them a few times before they read it themselves.

I bought this book for my nephew and he absolutely loved the story and the colorful, animated drawings. The message is also a powerful one to convey to young kids, who are more open to "differences" when they see them. As such, don't base your decision to check out this book solely on the author. Regardless of Perez as the author, which honestly makes no difference to me, the book itself is outstanding and a quintessential story for our modern culture. A must read for all kids (and adults too)!

A great read for children between the ages of 5-10. How wonderful to have such great parents to let you know how special you are. It shows how one person can make a BIG difference in this world.

Notice how many of the reviewers have not even read the book, have nothing to say about the book, only about the author. Children don't know who wrote this book & despite what you conservative, hateful people think, children should not be afraid to be different & be themselves, and any book that supports that message is a positive one. I feel sorry for the children of the reviewers who are so hateful, negative & unaccepting.

A good book for teaching children to value their differences and celebrate their individuality. It also teaches them to value the differences in others.
