This is a charming book with a wonderful message — that we should all celebrate our own unique individuality. Charlie loves the bright red purse that his grandmother let him have. First his father, then his friends and even the crossing guard question him about his “strange” choice. But Charlie is not deterred and thanks to his determination, everyone around him realizes something important — it’s not always necessary to conform to societal norms. It’s more important to be true to yourself. Young readers will enjoy the whimsical illustration and the upbeat message.
