Title: “The World Needs More PURPLE PEOPLE  

Authors: Kristen Bell and Benjamin Hart 

Kristen Bell and Benjamin Hart have written a really cute and thoughtful book not about diversity but about being a better you.  

The whole family has great ideas for a child to learn by – whether it is Grandma telling you to laugh a lot (with snot) or use your voice to help a friend in need or Grandpa telling you to work hard (super-duper hard) and learn things in the process.  

How many times can you say you read a children’s book and thought to yourself, “I want to be a Purple People, too”?  

We hope you visit us at the William Bradford Huie Library of Hartselle – please remember social distancing, time limit and hand sanitizer – and check out The World Needs More PURPLE PEOPLE.
