Purplicious by Victoria Kann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My daughter, Emma, suffers from a traumatic brain injury due to being a victim of Shaken Baby Syndrome. She is going on 6 but is cognitively 3 and she also suffers physical disabilities from the brain injury.
I found Purplicious one day while searching for books for Emma. Emma is a huge lover of books (just like her mother) and when I found Purpilicious the first thing I thought was it will be visually stimulating. And right I was. The bright colors (yes, my Emma loves the colors purple and pink!) captured her interest. Even better? The story of Purpilicious.
Pinkalicious loves the color pink until some of the other children started laughing at her and telling her that pink is for babies. Pinkalicious tries to defend her color choice and becomes very sad at the other girls' judgment of the color pink. She wouldn't even eat PINK ice cream!
Then one day, Pinkalicious makes a new friend- Purpilicious who loves the color purple and doesn't care what anybody thinks of it! They become friends united by "Baby Colors"
I love this book because my daughter is "different". with this book, I know she can learn that it's ok to be who she is regardless of whether it's popular.
