This is a delightful story to read to my son and the rhymes are beautiful how it tells your child they can be whatever they want to be as they grow and learn that our shadows show who we truly are and I like to say my son’s shadow is a rainbow as he is a ray of sunshine that loves everything and I, his mum I have a purple shadow. My Shadow is Pink is a cute story about a little boy who finds that his shadow is not blue like other boys, but rather pink. This book that teaches children how to be themselves, no matter what that ‘self’ may be, uses shadows to explain the concept.I love how the story deals with the challenge of having a parent who doesn’t agree with your clothing choice and then how this develops into the parent realising they were wrong and in the end changing their appearance to show solidarity. Our youngest son also loves the story, and it's brilliant giving him exposure at an age where he doesn't understand the depth of meaning, so that he can hopefully grow up without the societal gender constructs/mindset/opinions of previous generations.

Inspired by the best selling Melbourne author's own son, My Shadow is Pink is a beautifully written rhyming story of love and self-acceptance that touches on the subjects of gender identity, equality and diversity.No matter how hard he tries, the shadow continues to be pink, and he knows he is not like the rest of the boys, especially not like his dad.
I do agree with some of the other readers that pink and blue is a bit stereotypical, but that is how most of the society sees those colors so I don't mind those colors as much. For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms - but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation. The theme is really a dual one – one of accepting that people can live happily in their own shadow and also share interests that are not usually part of that shadow, and the other that there are those whose shadows may never match the gender assigned to them, and that is fine too. Opowieść, która dodaje odwagi dzieciom i ich rodzicom, ale też nieprzesadnie lukruje rzeczywistość, pokazując, że cienie są nie tylko różowe.This book is a lovely nod to those who feel they don’t match the expectations of others and are on a journey to accept themselves.
