A story where getting dressed inspires big dreams!
Each day is full of possibilities, and Zoe wants to be ready for everything this one might bring. But that makes getting dressed really, really hard! If it’s a twirling day, she’ll need to wear the purple skirt. But if it’s a cartwheeling day, she’ll want the polka-dot tights. Or it might be a hiding day, perfect for the flower crown that will help her blend into the garden . . . or a flying day, which demands butterfly wings! As the clothes pile up and Mama tells her it’s time to go, there’s only one way Zoe can be sure she’s prepared for all the adventures ahead — a solution that will have parents laughing in recognition and kids nodding in satisfaction. ZOE GETS READY is perfect for all those little girls who wouldn’t have things any other way.
Very cute and appropriate for a preschooler that is started to take over her own wardrobe choices. As always you gotta love a sparkly cover. You can imagine how much fun an imaginative little girl can have with different outfits. This book is an open show of love from a mother to her daughters and I’m glad to be able to share it with mine.
Thanks to Amazon Vine for providing a copy for review.
