What does it mean to dress like a girl?
Many will tell you in this big, wide world
that there are strict rules that must be addressed,
rules you will need when looking your best.
But when you are given these rules to obey,
the secret is heeding them—in your own way.
Praise For Dress Like a Girl…
— Kirkus Reviews
“What does it mean to “dress like a girl?” The six youngsters in this title show that there are no restrictions when it comes to answering that question… The girls-can-do-anything theme rings loud and clear and is presented with energy in an entertaining format.”
— ALA Booklist
“Tu-Dean captures the joy of dressing up, friendship, and discovery in her mixed-media art. Fashion is limitless and fun, Toht suggests—but it’s not so much the clothes that matter as the individual underneath.”
— Publishers Weekly
