When a young boy paints his nails with his mom’s nail polish, he discovers the most important thing of all: the magic of being his true self.
As the long late summer day stretches ahead of them, a young boy eagerly looks forward to his favorite time—painting-your-nails time. He know that when he dips into those magical bottles of nail polish, he will discover a color to express his every mood and feeling. Purple is the color of magic and mystery. White is the color of endless possibilities. At times, his papa frowns and says, “What have you done to your nails?” At other times, he says, “Why don’t you paint on paper instead?” But the little boy knows that painting his nails makes his hands look beautiful.
This color-filled story celebrates the joy of finding out who you are and embracing the courage to be yourself.
