Harold and the Purple Crayon Cover

 

Staff Pick

A wonderful first book for your baby, this wordless picture book is about a little boy with a purple crayon, and as he draws across the page the illustrations come to life. When I "read" this book to my babies, I saw their eyes following the purple line. It's still my favorite and occupies a prized place in my collection.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One evening Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight. But there wasn't any moon, and Harold needed a moon for a walk in the moonlight. Fortunately, he had brought his purple crayon. So he drew a moon. He also needed something to walk on. So he drew a path...

And thus begins one of the most imaginative and enchanting adventures in all of children's books. The creative concept behind this beloved story has intrigued children and kept them absorbed for generations, as page by page unfolds the dramatic and clever adventures of Harold and his purple crayon.
