Punchy rhymes like “Motors roaring/ Spirits soaring/ Voices chanting/ Doggies panting,” could describe any number of jubilant summer parades; add in “Clad in leather/ Perfect weather,” and the field narrows. Pitman, in her first book for children, salutes the LGBT parades that take place across the U.S. in June. Her couplets keep things marching steadily forward, but it’s Litten’s artwork that creates a sense of joyous excitement and showcases the diversity on display. Wisely, Litten only outlines the happy crowds and buildings in the background (placards reading “Born This Way” and “= Rights” are everywhere), saving color and detail for the marchers themselves. Organizations like the Human Rights Campaign and San Francisco’s elaborately costumed Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence appear, along with smiling politicians, women on motorcycles, shirtless dancers, and genderqueer drag queens with flowing gowns, feathered headpieces, and facial hair. Children are in the mix throughout, as well, driving home the underlying message: “All invited/ All excited.” Substantial endnotes discuss each scene and provide context for the people and groups represented, along with parental tips for discussing gender and sexuality. Ages 4–8. (May)
