'Twas the Night Before Pride celebrates families of all compositions and all-inclusive love. It covers difficult topics such as the Stonewall Riots and AIDS marches with bright illustrations and rhyme modeled on "Twas the Night Before Christmas." As the family packs treats and crafts banners, an elder sibling imparts the value of the parade to a new member. Reflecting on the day, they concur that the most beautiful thing about Pride is being able to be oneself.
Author Joanna McClintick and Pura Belpré Award–winning illustrator Juana Medina craft a beautiful picture book celebrating a family's Pride parade while succinctly detailing the Stonewall riots history in age-appropriate rhyme.
