Support Soles4Souls with “My Purple Toes”! (Giveaway)

Imagine the look on your child’s face if he or she suddenly noticed that their father had painted his toenails purple! You can bet there would be a lot of giggling! And that’s exactly what kids do when they read the children’s board book, My Purple Toes, by Blair Hahn.

In this chuckle-inducing book, Dad proudly proclaims, “Purple toes make me smile!” When he shows his purple-painted toenails to his family, Mother rolls her eyes, Sister giggles, Brother gets embarrassed, and Gus the dog barks at his purple toes! But Dad doesn’t care because he loves his purple toes. His purple toes feel the tall green grass of spring, play in the sand on the beach in summer, wiggle in the autumn leaves, and jump in the winter snow! (Meanwhile, young readers are asked to spot the purple toes in the charming illustrations by Tate Nation.) Dad’s purple toes go with him all over the house until they finally end up in his favorite place -- his warm and cozy bed.

My Purple Toes delighted my children and is certain to entertain yours, too! Another thing I really love about this book is that a portion of its proceeds support children around the world through the nonprofit organization, Soles4Souls, which provides shoes to those in need. So, you get a two-for-one when you purchase this book: a fantastic read for the whole family plus the knowledge that you’re helping a very worthy cause.

Go to www.mypurpletoes.com to learn more about My Purple Toes and purchase a copy. You can even find out how to host a Purple Party! And please visit www.soles4souls.org to learn more about this terrific organization.

  18. I really liked their 'Lessons' tab. The best things is #3 - Embrace Being Unique & Different. So often, parents tend to compare kids and this lesson is very essential for both parents and kids. Thanks for the giveaway.
