Editorial Reviews

Review

“The theme color (purple) and the look (childlike illustrations on a clean white background) each recall Crockett Johnson’s classic, Harold and the Purple Crayon. Ideal for young children. Purple Little Bird, with his bright color, oversize head, and anxious expression, is plenty appealing.” (ALA Booklist)

“Foley’s big, loose black lines and off-register swaths of color provide warmth and a consistently cheerful energy.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Foley uses a crayon palette to good effect, with warm hues and quick strokes that color outside the friendly cartoon lines and fill the page. Satisfying for the very youngest.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Format: Hardcover
Poor Purple Little Bird, no matter how hard he tries, he just can't make his purple little house perfect! He goes off in search of the perfect place, encountering a brown bear, a gray goat, a yellow camel, a blue frog, and finally a red tree with three pink possums hanging in a row. Eventually he finds that the perfect place was his own purple house! Now he knows how to fix it and goes about painting his house with all the colors he has seen in his travels. The message is brought home by the final panel showing the globe and all the colors bird visited. This is a nice little message and a gentle way to introduce basic colors to even the youngest story listeners.

The art is simple and elegant, and exhibits the design style we have come to know from Foley's Bear series. The colors are all accurately portrayed, and Purple Little Bird will surely endear himself to story listeners with his messily colored- in face and winsome expressions. This is a great story and a good choice for color learning that will be welcome in a child's personal collection and at story time. Recommended.

Purple Little Bird is full of really cute illustrations and a funny storyline. Sometimes I feel like Purple little bird sometimes, because all my favorite clothes are purple. I do try to switch it up sometimes. I'd recommend this book, as well as all of Greg Foley's other books.

This is a sweet little story. My granddaughter loves purple so I thought she would like this and she did!! But the story is as good for adults as for children; we go looking for better things and all the time they are right under our noses.

I checked this book out at the library for my grandson who is two years old. He asks me to read it all the time, so now I'm buying him his own personal copy. It's a very cute book that teaches about colors, animals, and problem solving. Purple bird doesn't like his purple house so he goes looking for a new place to live. He ends up back at his old house and he and his friends repaint it.

Purple little bird is a no-brainer for any kid who loves the color purple but more than that, it's a very sweet book about searching everywhere for something that was right there all along. The drawings of purple little bird and his purple little world are too cute! This book is a gem.

The illustrations and story make this a sweet little book about a purple little bird looking for a way to make a perfect home for himself. My 18 month old son and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. A nice book to read at the end of the day to wind down.
