A dedicated mom puts love into action as she creates the perfect rainbow-colored wig for her transgender daughter, based on the real-life experience of mother-daughter advocate duo Trinity and DeShanna Neal.

Warm morning sunlight and love fill the Neal home. And on one quiet day, playtime leads to an important realization-Trinity wants long hair like her dolls. She needs it to express who she truly is.

So her family decides to take a trip to the beauty supply store, but none of the wigs is the perfect fit. Determined, Mom leaves with bundles of hair in hand, ready to craft a wig as colorful and vibrant as her daughter is.

With powerful text by Trinity and DeShanna Neal and radiant art by Art Twink, My Rainbow is a celebration of showing up as our full selves with the people who have seen us fully all along.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In their #OwnVoices picture book debut, mother-daughter duo and transgender rights advocates DeShanna and Trinity Neal center a Black transgender girl looking for hair that suits her gender expression. Inspired by the younger coauthor, protagonist Trinity's gender "was part of what made her a masterpiece, just like her autism and her Black skin." Trinity feels a keen desire for long hair like that on the dolls she shares with nonbinary sibling Hyperion, despite hating "how it made her itchy when it was growing out." With inspiration from sibling Lucien, their mom sets out to create the perfect multicolored wig for Trinity--one that doesn't trigger the girl's sensitivities and that aligns with her "already perfect" natural curls. Artist Twink's inviting use of color highlights the family's warm home and the bright rainbow wig--an object that makes Trinity feel like a more authentic version of herself: "It's me, Mom. My hair has finally come!" A joyful family story that emphasizes the importance of listening and loving people for who they are. Ages 4--8. (Oct.)"
