This book is about a little girl who wore a different dress each day. On her birthday she could not decide what she wanted to wear so she put on all of her dresses, This made it hard to participate in all her birthday activities. So she decided to put on pants and a tshirt. She never worse a dress again. This book is great for ages 5 through 8 years old. It teaches chidden about gender norms and that it is okay to be yourself. I would probably keep this book in my classroom in the future but i d ...more
Neat fabric collage illustrations accompany this picture book about decisions and getting dressed.

This beautiful children's picture book tells the story of Hannah, a girl who does not know what to wear on her birthday. She goes through all of her outfits and then decides to wear all of them to solve her problem! This does not end up working out. She ends up finding a solution that makes her feel much better about her identity. This lovely book is relatable for any young girl and could grow to be a favorite. Appropriate for early elementary age students.

This book teaches young girls ages 0-3 to be themselves while keeping a colorful, easy to follow, pattern. I liked this picture book because it had a cute ending and the book is inviting. This book is about a young girl who has many dresses, but realizes in the end that its easier to play games in her pants. She then steps away from her routine of many dresses to find that pants are much more fitting.

This book is about a girl who cannot make up her mind on what to wear. She decides on having a dress for each day of the week. These decisions that she is making are very important to her. This book is perfect for preschool children especially if they are bad at making up their minds.
I really liked this author's YA novel, so I was somewhat disappointed by this picture book. Of course, picture books rely more on pictures and lyrical words than on character development. Still, for fans of Birdie's Big Girl Shoes, this is the next logical step.
A wonderful children's story!
