One of most favorite, simplest things ever, is the children's book, Harold and The Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson. This book is the most adorable book. Harold gets to tell his own story using his purple crayon. In essence, he gets to write his own life. He is in control of what he wants and what he is doing. I believe this message is so important, not only to children in our world, but adults as well. With work and imagination, you can do and create anything. You are in power and it is your life.
In the past, I have given this book to many new parents to read and enjoy with their new babies as they grow older. I believe its lesson is powerful and important and it is told in a most simple way.
