Ella Sarah Gets Dressed
by Margaret Chodos-Irvine


Ella Sarah is very clear on what she should wear and refuses to budge an inch! With every new suggestion from her family, she simply repeats the exact outfit that she wants to wear. 

In the end, that's exactly what she does wear, and when her equally flamboyantly dressed friends arrive for a tea party, readers will be glad she got her way!

The simple storyline is cute and certainly something that kids can relate to, but what we really like about this book are the illustrations, especially all the vivid colors and the fun patterns on the wallpaper, bedding, clothing, etc. A variety of printmaking techniques were used and the result are pages with"a strong graphic punch"!  (PW) This is definitely for preschool and Kindergarten, as grade school kids will most likely find it too 'babyish' for their big kid sensibilities.
