My girls (ages 3 and 6) are big fans of Pinkalicious and we have purchased every book. We pre-ordered a copy of Pinkalicious and the Pink Hat Parade when it came out and it is really great. It is another one of those very happy stories with Pinkalicous and her brother Peter being happy kids. The best part about the story is that it is very positive throughout with no "Mean Girl", "Pink Stinks" negativity that is found in some of the books. The story is all about Pinkalicous and Peter entering the Spring Hat Parade contest. Each one has a great time creating their favorite hat while showing a lot of creativity and imagination (a great example for your child). Pinkalicious covers her hat in Pink and Flowers, as you would expect. Peter, on the other hand, creates a never before seen masterpiece made completely of chocolate candy. The only problem is that the parade is in the hot sun, and you can imagine what happens next. At the end of the story, there is a great happy ending and Pinkalicous does a very nice thing for her brother, who is now known as Chocolicious. It turns out to be a really happy story that is totally based in reality with no crazy, unrealistic fantasy journey in the middle of the book, like some of the Pinkalicous stories. My girls really enjoyed the book, which is the most important part of all. My 3 year old, who is just discovering Pinkalicious, insisted on reading it again right away.
Long story short, the book has a positive and fun story with a happy ending, great artwork and is a great reading book for more advanced young readers. It also comes with Pinkalicious and Peter paper dolls and stickers that your child can decorate. A great Pinkalicious book. Highly Recommended!
