“The young girl and her dog take on a gamut of outfits and identities . . . Dress Me encourages young girls to enthusiastically be themselves.” —Kids Lit Review
A young girl makes her way through a variety of career possibilities—dancer, doctor, superhero, plumber—in a variety of costumes. She can be graceful, creative, brave, caring, silly, and even scary. She can wear braids or glasses, a crown or a beret. No matter what she chooses, her puppy is twirling, painting, and hammering right beside her, often with an accessory of his own. The story is simple and yet suggests infinite, limitless opportunities and the little girl’s right to choose who and what she wants to be. The message is one of exploration, choice, and self-expression. And ultimately another option for the little girl is to be “just me.”
From the author and illustrator of Paint Me! comes a new story that teaches children to explore and to be open-minded. Featuring simple text but an inspiring story and lovely, detailed illustrations, Dress Me! is sure to charm young readers and parents alike. This book is perfect for early readers and for reading out loud.
