A purple person is an everyday superhero! How do you become one? That's the fun part! Penny Purple will lead you through the steps. Get ready to be silly, exercise your curiosity, use your voice, and be inspired.

A lovely picture book for youngsters that reinforces the ideas we all unique and valued, so be your best authentic self! Vividly illustrated and a good pick for the themes of personal development and self acceptance. This title is a Goodreads Choice Awards Nominee for Picture Books in 2020. Check it out and see if you're a purple person! I think I'm a purple person, or at least violet. :)

Good book to read to preschoolers about staying true to yourself.

It was so good and I liked it. It was a little boring but I would tell others about it. It was about being purple. [3 year old's review]

I know reviews are mixed online, but I loved this story. It may not have delved deep into racism like a lot of people expected, but I still thought it was a fantastic way to shine a light on kindness and being a helper and being true to yourself. I think it’s great to tell children to laugh and love and ask a ton of questions. The images were also adorable and full of snot and laughter.

Purple is a magic color made when red and blue work together.
