Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Follows the journey of a pink hat that is swiped out of a knitting basket by a pesky kitten, blown into a tree by a strong wind, and used as a cozy blanket for a new baby, then finally makes its way onto the head of a young girl marching for women's equality"-- Provided by publisher.

    A pink hat and a placard? Adults—and even some children—will know exactly where this picture book is marching. Joyner fashions a simple tale about a pink knit hat that makes its way through a neighborhood, whether absconded by a playful cat, dropped by a baby, or snatched by a dog. The spare, thick-lined illustrations have an ink-and-watercolor appearance, where pink is the only color in the otherwise black-and-white scenes. This keeps young readers focused on the bright hat's movement through the city, with pink streaks charting its course, until it ends up in the possession of a young girl. She takes the hat home and, after a wash, wears it through a montage of activities, which end with her, homemade sign under arm, joining a pink-capped throng in the streets. The final spread zooms in on the diverse, smiling crowd, proudly holding signs declaring, "The Future Is Feminist," "Hear Our Voice," and "Girl Power." A gentle conversation starter for discussions on human rights and peaceful protest, with an appended note on the 2017 Women's March. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
