Mary is a bit of a fashionista, but she won’t let her goals interfere with her fun! The ending is delightful.
Every-day Dress-up by Selina Alko (Author/Illustrator)

Do all girls dress like princesses? Not this one. She dresses like famous female role models.
A Perfect Picture Book Pair showcases two books with universal themes, but one must include a diverse setting, or life experience, or main character. My goal is to support books in the market that helps contribute to diversity in children’s literature.
