Piper loves Purpa, her favorite purple sweater. She wears it everywhere—to the park, to birthday parties, and every occasion in between. But as Piper grows bigger and taller, Purpa does not, and soon Piper can’t fit into Purpa anymore . . . though maybe she can find another way to keep her beloved sweater in her life. This reassuring story reminds us that growing up doesn’t always mean leaving our favorites behind.
