#BookReview: Pink and Purple Bob by Crystal Napolitano @crystalnapolit2

Hi everyone. I hope this finds you all well. No health updates for me this week. We’re still waiting and seeing. Today, I have a children’s book review for you from an author I’m new to and enjoyed. Next week, I have a review for the first book in a 2-book crime-thriller series, which I’m currently enjoying ๐Ÿ™‚ >>>

About the Book:


54560181. sy475



Bob is a sad lonely dog who wants pink and purple things to make his life complete.

With the help of a little mouse, all his wishes come true!

However, in the end Bob realizes there’s way more to life than his precious pink and purple things.

A colorful rhyming picturebook with highly animated characters that is sure to captivate all ages. Learn about kindness, friendship and feelings with PINK AND PURPLE BOB.

Perfect for bedtime, storytime, read along, earlyreading, playtime, emotional development and just for fun. For ages baby and up!

My Review:

This is a wonderful children’s book that lends itself to shared reading. The illustrations are bright and colourful and just gorgeous. I love the ryhming verses and the overarching message that friendship is more important than possessions. Some of the words are put in all-caps for emphasis too.

I adore this little line:ย ‘Bob named his friend for being as GREAT as she was teeny ..’

For me, that says it all.

Five stars from me. A fun read for all ages!


NOTE ON RATINGS: I consider a 3-star rating a positive review. Picky about which books I give 5 stars to, I reserve this highest rating for the stories I find stunning and which moved me.

4 STARS: I WOULD PULL AN ALL-NIGHTER โ€” Go read this book.
3 STARS: IT WAS GOOD! โ€” An okay read. Didnโ€™t love it. Didnโ€™t hate it.
2 STARS: I MAY HAVE LIKED A FEW THINGS โ€”Lacking in some areas: writing, characterisation, and/or problematic plot lines.
1 STAR: NOT MY CUP OF TEA โ€”Lots of issues with this book.

I’d love to hear what you think of this review. Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚
