Every night before bed we snuggle in the bed and read several books to Jude. He picks out his favorites and we recite the same story over and over and over. It’s become so consistent that we don’t even have to look at the pages and sometimes he’ll just recite the lines to us. So it’s always a welcome treat when we get a new book, especially a board book.
We just received a new board book, My Purple Toes by Blair Hahn. I always pre-read books before I read them to Jude and I absolutely fell in love with this story. I like that is’ based on a real experience about a wonderful father getting a pedicure with his daughter. It’s fun and silly. It’s also helping Jude learn the color purple, which is always a fun word to hear a toddler say.
About My Purple Toes
My Purple Toes is a creative children’s board book written for children between the ages of one and five that tells a story about a father’s experience navigating life with purple painted toenails. From mom to the kids to their dog, everyone reacts differently to dad’s purple toes showing their surprise, embarrassment, and even laughter.
Throughout the book, children can look for dad’s toes in various environments and also find a friendly frog with purple toes that hides on each page. In addition to entertaining, “My Purple Toes” teaches a simple, yet relevant lesson about the importance of acceptance, enjoying life and being different.
