My Purple Toes, a 2010 Moonbeam Children's Book Award winner, is a creative children's picture book written for children under eight-years-old 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. The book takes the reader through the seasons, bath time and finally to bed.
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.
My Purple Toes, the first of the Purple Series, features cheerful, imaginative illustrations by artist Tate Nation in a large easy to read picture book that is ideal for young children.
