My Purple Toes Children's Book Review & Giveaway


About the Book

Inspired by a trip to the nail salon with his daughter, Blair Hahn, leaving with painted purple toenails, created the children's board book My Purple Toes. Everyone, including family members and even the family dog, react differently to dad's purple toes. Children are taken on a journey to find the hidden purple toes in several colorful illustrations by Tate Nation. You will notice that there is a frog friend hiding along with the toes on each page, too! An entertaining book for children from ages one to five, My Purple Toes also teaches important lessons of acceptance and celebrating differences.A portion of all book sales will go to Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization collecting and distributing shoes to people in need regardless of race, religion, class or any other criteria.


My Thoughts

I had a feeling this book would be a big hit when I originally read about it and boy, was I right! As soon as Josiah, my 3 yr. old, saw the purple toenails he was hooked! We had to read the book immediately and have read it every night at bedtime. He loves pointing out the hidden toenails in each of the pictures, as well as the cute frog. Each illustration adds another piece to this wonderful family-friendly book. Plus, it's a board book so, it will be durable for your little ones!

Your children will, without a doubt, love the silly painted toenails and smile the entire way through the book.  They will enjoy searching for the toes and pointing out all the other items in each picture, too. Josiah absolutely loves going to the beach so, his favorite illustration includes hidden purple toenails in the sand along with other beach items! Oh, and don't forget to search for the cute frog. In addition to the life lessons My Purple Toes offers, your little one can practice counting the purple toes and learning colors.

I highly recommend My Purple Toes for children (1-5). They will love it!
