Good books for kids

Pinkalicious and Purplicious in good company at Target

Pinkalicious and Purplicious in good company at Target, originally uploaded by cynthiacloskey.

On a recent Saturday I stopped at the local Target to find a birthday gift for my niece. Look what I spied in the children’s book section.

My friend (and client) Elizabeth Kann and her sister Valerie wrote and illustrated, respectively, two fine children’s picture books: Pinkalicious and Purplicious. And there they sit, surrounded by Seussian icons, Curious George, Shel Silverstein, and other classics.

I can take no credit in the creation of these great books, nor their promotion (other than working on the websites). But I’m thoroughly proud of Elizabeth and Valerie. Check out these books next time you’re looking for a great gift for a smart little lady or man.

  1. The Wife and I are a couple of things to our niece, nephews and young cousins. We’re the fun ones, as we’re still willing to sit on the floor and play for as long as our rickety knees and hips will allow. We’re also the ones who always give books as gifts. I’ll take a look to be sure, but I’d bet those two books would be perfect for a little girl in Florida whose third birthday is coming in a few weeks.

  2. I can vouch for both of these books (and for my writing pal Elizabeth, co-author). My kids (a girl and a boy) really enjoyed them. I even read Pinkalicious to my daughter’s class when she was in first grade — the kids loved it. Check it out!

  3. Indulge me, won’t you? Pretty please?
