NEW to our range and just stocked in NZ, we’ve got our hands on a VERY limited number of books!!!
From the same author and illustrator as the Aroha series, its is a comprehensive picture dictionary with over 60 definitions, images and explanations to help children identify and understand their emotions.
Holding this book in my hands its beautiful. The colours are as vibrant in the video, the weight is nice – not too heavy from the hard cover but its not super light either. The pages also have a nice texture and are matte (not glossy) so really cool! Such a cool resource both for at home or an EXCELLENT gift for an ECE or school.
Size: 28.5cm long x 22.5cm high

From the back of the book:
Dye your Hair Purple Sooner
It’s not about your hair.
It’s about living your life boldly, authentically and genuinely as 100% yourself.
Dye Your Hair Purple Sooner is the self-help book for high achievers who have done everything right, but have a lingering sense of “is this all there is?”
Each chapter walks you through experiences, stories and activities that will help you see where you have been mis-sold the idea of success… and replace it with your own version of what it means to live your life in glorious technicolour instead of the dull and murky grey.
Dye your Hair Purple Sooner helps you:
- Redefine what success means to you and explain why no-one told you this before
- Overcome perfectionism, procrastination and imposter syndrome once and for all
- Set goals you can actually achieve
- Connect with others just like you who took the leap and metaphorically dyed their hair purple
By the end of this book, you will have your life so dialled in that you’ll wish you’d done it sooner….
(Its okay. You don’t have to dye your hair purple to make that dream a reality!).
