I Don’t Like Pink! | Book App
This is a wonderful book app that is loaded with lessons. The author, as well as the illustrator, Brooks Jones is a natural born teacher. Great Job Brooks! It is presented by PicPocket Books.
Gabi gets a present but it’s a pink tee shirt. Gabi does not like pink at all. Her friend sees it and resolves the problem as he likes pink.
The best part of the book is the end 🙂 It’s not really the end. It’s a dialogue suggestion that parents and caregivers can use to open a discussion on what kids like, what they would do, and how to be grateful in some way.
This is spelled out in this book app. In many of the book apps I review, I frequently point out to parents the valuable lessons in these book apps. Each has an opportunity for some great interaction and early learning skills.
A great gift for Christmas time and interacting with many friends and family members.

What was the initial inspiration for I Don’t Like Pink?
As the mom of two young girls, I see the influence of ‘pink princess parties’ everywhere. I developed the idea for the story after wondering what might happen if a little girl didn’t like the color. I feel strongly that kids should be able to express preferences for any color they choose–and shouldn’t be bound by societal mores.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
I like that Gabi writes a heartfelt thank you note at the end, expressing true appreciation for the gift of the pink shirt. I didn’t want her to seem ungrateful, and I think she succeeded!
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
My underlying message for all kids is that it’s OK for them to be exactly who they are, and that every child should be celebrated. I’d love to hear from my readers (firstname.lastname@example.org)–let me know what you think of the story, and visit my website at www.brooksjones.com for free activity sheets!
