us bookworms were surprised & giddy even to see their kiddie book basket was full of great new books!
not only did we each find new favie drinks,
but we found a new favie book!
not only was the character a super spunky & stinkin' cute brownsugar girlie,
but we LOVED the message of the book
against the attitude of throw away wastefulness & cherishing things that are special to us.
also a very good example of a capable, resourceful & creative mama...who in the end broadened her girlie's way of thinking differently about things & also inspires her.
Open up a fresh and stylish story about growing up and keeping hold of your favorite memories. As the year passes, the narrator’s favorite dress goes through a series of creative changes, from dress to shirt to tank top to scarf and so on, until all that’s left of it is a good memory. Assisted by her patient and crafty mama, the narrator finds that when disaster strikes her favorite things, she doesn’t need to make mountains out of molehills—she “makes molehills out of mountains” instead! Structured around the days of the week, the story is also illustrated to show the passing of the seasons, a perfect complement to the themes of growing older and keeping hold (and letting go) of special mementos.
