I had forgotten how much I loved Harold as a child. This is one of those perfect picture books that lends itself to art projects, imaginative play, and vocabulary-building talk with preschoolers. Highly recommended.

I liked the purple crayon the best and when he drew the moon.

Imaginative and fun. All of a sudden my son too was also drawing loads of purple drawings...

I asked my 6 year old daughter if she liked this book and all she said was "THERE WAS A LOT OF PURPLE IN THAT BOOK" From her tone I think she found it boring. But I thought it was CUTE and imaginative. Maybe this book would best suit pre-schoolers.

My favourite book from when I was little - a lovely story that unfolds in a way that makes sense to little kids even today.
