“Too Purpley!” by Jean Reidy

A little girl has a closet full of fancy clothes but not much to wear. (Whose fault is that, huh?!) One outfit is too purpley, another one is too stripey, too itchy, too feathery… Finally, the assertive toddler finds clothes that are just right. Clothes that are simply comfy.

A cute board book not only for toddlers. Greatly inventive illustrations, by Geneviève Leloup, full of playful patterns and vibrant colors. In a few catchy phrases and with a lot of humor, Joan Reidy sends an important message to us, parents: comfortable clothes are children’s first choice.  Should we respect that basic preference a bit more, we could avoid many morning  fits and getting-dressed drama.
