A lovely commemoration of the Women's March that took place round the world January 21, 2017. It's a visual representation of not simply a pink hat traveling here, there, and everywhere, being used for a variety of purposes and with so much strength in its fibers, but of the power of women and why equal rights in all aspects of life is not simply a desire...but a right.

A woman knits a pink hat for herself but when her mischievous kitten accidentally knocks it out the window, it cycles through many people and various uses. Finally it ends up back as a hat on the head of a little girl joining a Women's March demonstration.

This was a great book on many levels. I enjoyed the spare color palette using shades of grays with the occasional pop of hot pink whenever the hat was near. The book shows how even in a large city, people can be connected in ways they are unaware of, as we see characters from the beginning of the book show up again later. The hat being used in various ways depending on the current owner is a great example of re-use and thinking creatively. The ending with the Women's March can lead to a discussion about the reasons behind this political and human rights demonstration -- or not. The caregiver reading this with a child can decide how much is appropriate to share with a child based on her or his level of understanding. ( )

The Pink Hat is a great story to teach young girls to stand up tall and be proud of who you are. We are all strong and can do whatever we want. Women should support women in what is right. This is a great simple story for all ages to read and to build positive strong women.

Book description
Here is a clever story that 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.

Inspired by the 5 million people (many of them children) in 82 countries who participated in the 2017 Women's March, Andrew Joyner has given us a book that celebrates girls and women and equal rights for all!
