What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The long-awaited paperback edition of a Caldecott Honor book that celebrates a child’s unique sense of fashion and independent streak. Ella Sarah may be little, but she has a BIG sense of style—and it isn’t at all like that of her mother, father, or older sister. Yet they all want her to dress just like them! Ella Sarah will have none of it—and when her flamboyantly dressed friends arrive, it’s clear that Ella Sarah’s favorite outfit is just right for her. Written and illustrated by Margaret Chodos-Irvine, this spirited Caldecott Honor-winning story will gently nudge young children toward independence—providing plenty of exuberant colors and patterns to identify along the way.
