We love books in my family. We currently have boxes and boxes of them waiting to be unpacked in our new home in 2 weeks! Books for all ages and stages. From, fabric and board books to hard and soft cover books, "Where's Waldo" style to even role playing books. We LOVE books! So when I was approached about a book review, a children's book review, I jumped at the opportunity!
When his daughter was a teen, Blair Hahn accepted an invitation for a daddy daughter date to have pedicures done. As their date came to a close, Blair noticed that his daughter's toes were being painted bright pink. He teased her, "What about me?". Before he knew it his toes were being painted purple. They proudly marched out of the salon, showing off their newly polished toes.
This experience inspired Blair's first book, "My Purple Toes". Geared to children aged 1-5, this story tell of father who goes through life with purple painted toenails. Everyone reacts differently to dad's toes, even the dog!
My kids enjoy this story very much. Not only does it further encourage their love of reading, it engages play within the book. On every page, hidden somewhere, is a little green frog, who, like dad, has purple toes!
Learning the life lessons of accepting everyone, enjoying life and being yourself has been made so simple, that even my pre-schooler is pointing out when her sisters aren't following these simple, yet major lessons!
"My Purple Toes" is available for sale at a very reasonable price of $10.99.
