Our house has a lopsided boy:girl ratio. I am completely outnumbered. Admittedly, my book choices and recommendations tend to reflect that. But today I thought I'd give a shout out to one of my favorite girly books, the ones I wish I could justify owning, but since I can't, I give them away to my nieces and friends.
Birdie's Big-Girl Shoes by Sujean Rim
Sujean Rim's illustration style is perfection. I love the wispy, playful feel. I love how she incorporates pattern and fashion, but manages to still be little-girl-lovable. And, never fear, though Birdie is a little fashionista in the making, in the end, she always chooses the joy of being a barefooted, fun-loving child. Since the release of Birdie's Big-Girl Shoes , Sujean Rim has added two more Birdie books to the collection, Birdie's Big-Girl Dress and Birdie Plays Dress-Up .
