My Purple Toes {A Book Review}

Posted: November 28th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Reviews and Giveaways | 2 Comments »

The boys love books.

All three of them. We have hundreds of books in various stages of use right now. Most of them have been, ahem, *loved* quite a bit. Yes, that is what I’ll call it. They are well loved. actually, books are probably the favorite thing in our house. Not a bad thing for sure. Yogi Dad and I are both avid readers who grew up in houses full of books with parents who read and read to us. It’s only natural that we’d have little readers too.

Every night the boys climb up on the couch with a stack of books. Sometimes it’s small, sometimes it’s tall. Sometimes we get through them all, sometimes not. It depends on whether their bottoms are as interested in sitting still as their brains when they picked out the books.

The newest additions to our bedtime book routine are My Purple Toes and My Purple Kisses by Blair Hahn. The Purple Series all started when a dad took his daughter to get a pedicure and came back with purple toes!

My Purple Toes by Blair Hahn

I was interested in the Purple books because of the great message they send: It’s OK to be different! Having two kids with Autism, it’s a message that we are always trying to reinforce. Diversity is good- it can even be fun!

The illustrations by Tate Nation are great- simple and bright. The story moves quickly and isn’t too “wordy”- a must for a good bedtime read. The boys pay attention and don’t skip ahead. I’m not sure that they understand the message just yet, but I hope one day they will.

You can read more about The Purple Series at www.mypurpletoes.com. A portion of all sales of My Purple Toes goes to Soles4Souls- a nonprofit that provides shoes, free of charge to those in need.

Disclosure: I was provided books to review from Business 2 Blogger. All opinions are my own.

    It is my husband that can enchant our kids with books in the evenings in our house. Every time I try to read to them, they go wild and don't seem to pay enough attention to me. I wonder why it is so. We love books very much too, hopefully our children are going to be book-lovers too. Thanks for the review of this book, it sound interesting, all kids SHOULD learn that being different is OK. We could avoid a lot of bullying if this was done.

    I am not that familiar with the type of book that you are talking in here. But it seems it is very nice and appropriate for children. My Baby obviously like to read books.Since she is still 2 years old looking the photos is just her way to learn. Anyway, thank you for sharing this information. This book seems very interesting.
