Purplicious follows a young girl, Pinkalicious, who loves the color pink. One day in school, a group of students decides that they no longer like the color pink, and that only black is acceptable. They begin to tease her about her love of pink. She briefly doubts her love of pink before realizing that it is part of who she is. This book would be a good book to use in the classroom because it reminds students that they should not let others dictate their interests. The book is definitely geared more towards younger girls, so I would most likely give this to individual students rather than use it in whole class.

Pinkalicious loves pink. She has everything pink and pink is her favorite girl until all the girls at school said pink is over and black is the new color. Pink cried and was feeling blue, she did not want anything pink not even pink ice cream. One day at school she meant a girl who told her pink is a powerful girl watch. She mixed pink with blue and it made purple. Purplicious and pinkalicious are now best friends.

Personal Reaction:
You need to stick to your favorite color for you do not know if it is a powerful color. Stay true to yourself and do not change because everyone says pink is sissy.

Classroom extension:
1. In classroom, I will read purplicious for it is a great book about being true to yourself.
2. In addition, I will ask each child to draw a picture with their favorite color and to be different is okay. ( )

Everyone tells Pinkalicious that pink is passe and everyone likes black now. She's very upset until she meets a girl who teaches her that pink is so powerful that it can turn blue into purple. ( )

Pinkalicious is an adorable little girl who just doesn't seem to want to give up on the color pink. Despite the fact that she is ridiculed at school for it. I found this book was very good at dealing with the sensitive topic of bullying in children. ( )

This book helps explain to readers that it is okay if everyone likes different things. While addressing the fact that bullying makes children said and can temporarily change who they are as well as what they like. In the end it conveys that no matter who you are there is someone out their who has similar interests and likes that finds you awesome! ( )

This book is a part of the "Pinkalicious" series and is also an excellent resource to teach colors and a strong message to be yourself.

It's purple Pinkalicious!

Pinkalicious loves the color pink, but all the girls at school like black. They tease her, saying that pink stinks and pink is for babies. But Pinkalicious doesn't think so…that is, until her friends stop playing with her. Now Pinkalicious has a case of the blues. But could she ever turn her back on her favorite color?

In the follow-up to the bestselling Pinkalicious, a young girl remains true to herself and discovers that pink isn't only a pretty color, but also a powerful one.
