My children love to read, so I love new books. So when I was offered the opportunity to review My Purple Toes, through Family Review Network, of course, I agreed.
About the book My Purple Toes…
My Purple Toes is a creative children’s board 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.
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” features cheerful, imaginative illustrations by artist Tate Nation on its board-style book, offering durability ideal for young children. “My Purple Toes” can be purchased online for $10.99.

I was really excited to receive My Purple Toes. I don’t know about your kids, but my kids tend to get on this never-ending-merry-go-round of a couple of books, and it is hard to break the cycle. For weeks on end, we will read about Thomas or about Tremendous Tractors. Then one day, they will suddenly decide that book no longer holds their interest, and will pick a new one that we have to read for what feels like EVER.
When we received My Purple Toes, Sister immediately claimed it as her very own. She fell in love with the illustrations and had fun finding the hidden toes on various pages.
My Purple Toes is really a cute story that not only teaches children that it is okay to be different, but also encourages them to embrace their uniqueness.
Sister loved to walk around with the book tucked under her arm, and literally wanted to sleep with it!
Unfortunately, after having the book for only a few days, the binding came apart. Sister was just devastated when I took it away and told her she couldn’t read it anymore.
Fortunately, though, the book was replaced without incident by the publisher after I notified them, via Family Review Network, of the faulty binding.
They did ask me to send the faulty book back to the manufacturer, so that they could ensure that the faulty binding was an isolated case. So, I did.
When the new book came in, I showed it to Sister. She smiled and said, “Piple toes!” She immediately sat down and started looking at the book.
So far, we have not had any problems with the binding on the replacement book.
