If your little girl is like mine, one day she’s a fashionista trying on every stitch of clothing in her closet and the next day she’s a Ninja Turtle saving me from the dirty dishes. However she imagines herself, I strive to make sure she can find a wide range of inspiration in books. Check out my short list of books your daughter will love.
Mary Had a Little Glam by Tammi Sauer (Author), Vanessa Brantley-Newton (Illustrator)
This little Mary has STYLE! In this fun take on Mother Goose, fashion-forward Mary helps some of the childhood’s most beloved characters go glam. From the kid who lives in a shoe (and dons some fab footwear, too) to Jack, who breaks his crown but gets a great new one, Mary’s school friends look fantastic in their finery. But are they now too well dressed for recess? Not to worry—Mary always shows her flair for what to wear!
When Superheroes don’t get their way,
when they’re sad, when they’re mad, when they’ve had a bad day . . .
. . . they COULD super-tantrum, they COULD but they DON’T,
because REAL Superheroes just WOULDN’T—they WON’T!
All kids have trouble getting a grip on their emotions, sometimes—even young superheroes! But what do they do when they’re having a bad day? Colorful action-packed illustrations and a dynamite rhyming text reveal the many ways superheroes (and ordinary children, too) can resist the super-temptation to cause a scene when they’re sad, mad, frustrated, lonely, or afraid. From burning off steam on a bike or a hike, to helping others, this energetic picture book has plenty of fun ideas to help kids cope when they’re feeling overwhelmed.
