I typically complain that pink and purple are the hardest for me to find because of the fact that I'm outnumbered by fellas in my house, and I'm a bit of a tomboy. I had no trouble this time, though, thanks to our love of books. I was happy to find a specimen of Tickle Me Pink from both my and the boy's libraries.
One of Wyatt's favorite books is simply titled Ted. It's about a boy and his imaginary friend of that name and all of the hijinks that ensue when they put their minds together. The illustrations are beautifully done, and in all honesty, are the initial reason I bought the book. Thankfully, the story is hilarious, too, which has made it a frequent choice at bedtime.
Here's my punkin' reciting his favorite lines by heart, word-for-word.
None of my books are so exciting as Ted and all of his antics, but a few have greatly impacted my life nonetheless. This pretty pink bible study workbook, for example, gave me a new perspective on beauty. It's called Beauty by the Book by Laurie Cole, and teaches its readers what the bible has to say about beauty. In case you're wondering, God looks at our hearts first and foremost. But He also happily claims responsibility for our outward beauty...He created it afterall!
Which to choose as my official entry? Both the bright-eyed Ted and my study workbook are the exact shade of Tickle Me Pink when compared to the crayon scribbled on paper. Pink was the natural choice for the bible study book about beauty; the imagination need not stretch too far for that one. Ted, on the other hand, gets his unique "pinkish-purply" by eating lots of raspberries. How can I not go with Ted?
