Hi, adults! That’s right, it’s me! I’m back! First of all, you might notice that I have a different picture. Even though my mom says that my last picture was beautiful too and if anyone ever tells me otherwise, I should wet burp on them. You have been warned, Nana.
Here is a book that Santa brought me. It is about a boy, Harold, who only has one crayon because his mom took all of his other crayons away and put them on a high shelf or something or maybe his Auntie Em broke them, I don’t know. So Harold takes his one measly crayon and he draws himself a whole big purple adventure. There is a dragon and a boat and a moose and some pies and a city and a bunch of other stuff, only it’s all purple. (My mom likes purple, but I’m partial to pink.) And then he realizes that he is lost in his purple adventure and he has to try to draw himself home. I won’t tell you how it turns out, except that it’s a good thing Harold’s home is purple too. My room is yellow, so a purple crayon wouldn’t do me much good, now would it?
My mom says that this book is supposed to encourage children to be creative and use their imaginations. But I think this book is supposed to encourage parents to give their children ALL THE CRAYONS. Not just one. Hear that, Mommy? ALL THE CRAYONS. Or if not, can I at least have pink?
Lesson for parents: You want creativity? Give me ALL THE CRAYONS. Your bedroom walls could use some flair.
Mom says you can encourage creativity by buying Harold and the Purple Crayon here, or go to your local bookstore. Whatever blows your purple hair back.
