Birdie’s birthday party is tomorrow but in Birdie’s Big Girl Dress by Sujean Rim (Little Brown, 2011), she discovers that her favorite party dress is too small! Thus begins a search for the perfect party dress for Birdie. When the stores prove fruitless, she finds treasure in her attic.

With detailed watercolor illustrations and just a little bit of collage, Birdie’s ultimate discovery appears as a multi-dimensional treasure. This book celebrates a child finding their own way to express themselves, and I enjoyed following Birdie on her search and as she created her final solution.
