Robin Stevenson, illustrated by Julie McLaughlin
E is for everyone under the sun. F is for feathers, and flags, and fun… A young child and their family are having a wonderful time together celebrating Pride Day–meeting up with Grandma, making new friends and eating ice cream. But then something terrible happens: their dog gets lost in the parade!
Luckily, there are lots of people around to help reunite the pup with his family. This rhyming alphabet book tells a lively story, with rich, colourful illustrations that will have readers poring over every detail as they spot items starting with each of the letters of the alphabet. An affirming an inclusive book that offers a joyful glimpse of a Pride parade and the diverse community that celebrates this day. (From Orca Book Publishers)
