Today This Kid Reviews Books Goes Purple!

26 Mar

Today is Purple Day and my blog is turning purple in honor of it!


Purple day is a day to bring awareness about Epilepsy. I learned about Epilepsy because of my cyber-friend Renn (son of author Bethany Telles) is “battling” it right now. You can learn more about Epilepsy and Purple Day by visiting the Purple Day website HERE. You can learn more about Renn and his battle with Epilepsy by visiting The Brain of a Jedi.

    Bless your sweet soul, Erik, for doing this. Purple just happens to be my favorite colour! Get well soon, Renn. Prayers from Singapore beaming your way. πŸ™‚

    Great effort to support. I know so many children who have seizures. Nice tribute to Renn.

    Yikes – I have nothing purple to wear! A friend just happened to be on her way to read Harold an =d the Purple Crayon at the elementary school, so I told her about Purple day – hope she passes it on!

      Two classmates wore purple without knowing what day it was! Now, if they knew and had the thought to take time to do it… πŸ˜‰

        Wait. You play badminton? πŸ˜‰

        Yessiree! Competetive, not in the garden. It’s an Olympic sport, and the most popular one in China these days. We play with a lot of different people – from China. Taiwan, India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Holland, England, Germany, Canada… Helps to have a university in town.

        Cool! Have you guys tried out for the Olympics (or whatever you need to do to get into them…)?

    I have never heard of Purple Day- but I think it sounds awesome. I know it was today- but I will tell my 5th grade students about it tomorrow. πŸ™‚ I have a friend with epilepsy and I know it can be hard. I have been sending out good wishes to Renn!

    Love the purple look. You’re a good friend, Erik!
    Thank you very much, too, for finding that error in my Easter math freebie. It’s all fixed and I gave you a little shout-out for coming to my rescue.
    Take care!
