Every Day is Pink Shirt Day
Every Day is Pink Shirt Day, written by Halifax teacher and guidance counsellor, Heather Topshee, is a book I illustrated with the help of graphic artist Nancy MacDonald. It tells the story of Maya, a Grade 3 pupil attending school on Stand Up Against Bullying Day. Maya sees all the children wearing pink shirts to support anti-bullying behaviour but also sees children being unkind in the schoolyard. With the help of her guidance counsellor, Maya shows her schoolmates that simply wearing a pink t-shirt is not enough—we must choose to be kind every day.
