Le petit garçon qui aimait le rose

(The lboy who loved pink) Book not yet available in English


Luc loves pink. Pink houses, pink trees, pink suns, pink skies – all his drawings use his favourite colour. Luc definitely sees life through rose-tinted glasses! His mother buys him the pink school bag he has long had his eye on. But everyone at school teases him, calling him Lucie instead of Luc. They make him so sad he starts crying. But luckily, he meets Nico, who helps him smile again. [Source: Déborah Mirabel, Ricochet]


The book’s message is clear but the ending is cut short, leaving it up to the reader to decide how things turn out. This clever choice invites children to think and discuss the book with an adult reader. Over the pages, young readers see how mean it is to tease others and how it’s better to help others and to accept yourself as you are. A book with a powerful message that encourages young readers to think about a number of themes like unfairness, tolerance, and friendship. [Source: Déborah Mirabel, Ricochet]
