An excerpt from A Dress for Me!:
School is starting.
I've grown tall.
Time to buy new clothes for fall!
Jewels that shimmer,
big pink bow,
beads and fringe from head to toe.
feather boa...ballroom bash!
Watch the trailer!
Praise for A Dress for Me!
Cheryl's Book Nook
"The moment I opened the pages and began to read, I knew I was going to love this book... it rhymed! And what girl doesn't like shopping. I actually used this book in a writing lesson. I found not only did the kids love the story but I could use it as a teaching tool. My writing lesson on adjectives and descriptive words was a hit."
Once Upon A Story
"Instant hit. The illustrations are full of color and sparkle and shine. Everything a 3yo with a strong fashion sense could possibly want. The rhyming text is easy to read aloud, while including a multitude of adjectives and attributes on each page."
Not for lunch blog
"Well-paced with rhyming text, this makes for a terrific read aloud. That rhyming and limited text format, accompanied by great picture clues, also make this an excellent choice for emerging readers. I love when a picture book presents little teachable moments about writing"
Into the Wardrobe
"a fun and RELEVANT picture book that captures some of the excitement - and frustration - of back-to-school shopping."
"A perfect book to begin the school year."
4 Children's Books That Rock: "In this very cute and exciting book, Hippo needs a new dress, which she's finally old enough to choose. But there are so many choices! The rhyming and the excitement of being "big enough" get him [reviewer's son] every time." ~Alicia Harper, Mamarama: Redbook's Mom Blog Council
"Budding fashionistas will enjoy this rollicking rhyme!"
Wrapped in Foil
"The new picture book A Dress for Me! by Sue Fliess and illustrated by Mike Laughead is a perfect anecdote to all the maleness that surrounds me. Told in flawless rhyme, this time Hippo is search of a new dress for school."
Read, Write, Repeat
"4 1/2 year old reviewer Sienna says: The best part was when: "She finds the dress." Three words that best describe this book are: “Awesome and fun!” My favorite line or phrase in the book is: “This dress looks like grandma’s rug.”"
