3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Cheryl C. Malandrinos VINE VOICE on October 25, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Every-Day Dress-Up opens with the young girl narrator telling her reader that she used to only play princess until her mommy told her stories of "real, great women." Every day she gets to be a "daring new dame." From Amelia Earhart to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, from Eleanor Roosevelt to Marie Curie, and from Julia Child to Alice Neel and more, this delightful playtime adventure story will inspire girls to reach for their dreams. With a blend of imagination and inspiration, Every-Day Dress-Up by Selina Alko will captivate your young reader.

Alko's illustrations are charming. From the cardboard box airplane that the girl flies in when she is Earhart, to the colorful robe she dons when she becomes Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, the illustrations make this book come alive.

Short biographies of the eleven historical figures featured are found in the back of the book, and there is a short list of "Books That Inspire."

Highly recommended.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews on January 2, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Being a mother of a little girl who loves to dress up, I loved the concept of this book. The little girl dresses up each of the week and pretends to go on the adventures of the prestige women she's pretending to be. While as I grown up, I knew who these amazing women are, they were totally lost to my little girl. Young girls would know more about these women than young preschool aged girls. I do love the concept that dress can be more than just Disney princesses. I'm a little torn on how to recommend this book. It's geared towards preschool aged kids, yet the content of the book is more of girls in elementary school. I like that the respected women through out history who are mentioned in this story are included in a biography in the back of the book.

Format: Hardcover
This is a terrific book, with such a welcome message. My niece has obsessively dressed as a variety of different princesses, much to my dismay. This book not only gently suggests to her that there's an alternative to idolizing princesses, but that it can be fun. Plus, she loved learning about all the women in history. The illustrations are beautiful too.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By M. Tanenbaum VINE VOICE on March 5, 2012
Format: Hardcover
In this charming new picture book perfect for Women's History Month, author Selina Alko celebrates great women of history through one small girl's imagination and offers an alternative to the princess onslaught. The book opens as follows:

"I used to only play princess/ until Mommy showed me pictures/ and told me stories of real, great women.
Now dressing up is an adventure/ when, every day of the week,/ I am a daring new dame!"

Each day of the week, our heroine dresses up as a different famous woman, including Amelia, First Lady of Flight, Ella, Queen of Jazz, Marie, Star-Studded Scientist, and Frida, Prized Painter. She even marches in a parade with her flag as Elizabeth, Super Suffragist! The colorful and whimsical illustrations show a child dressed up in costumes anyone could easily copy at home, and best of all, the little girl is even depicted putting away all her props and costumes (The clean-up song from Barney went through my head at that point in the story!) The story concludes with an inspirational message, "And when I'm older, I hope/ to have my own outstanding outfit,/so that little girls will sport costumes of me!"

Back matter includes brief biographies of the great women mentioned in the text, as well as a short list of picture books on some of the women in the book. Endpapers offer paper-doll costumes and a paper doll, which could be color copied to be played with without destroying the book.

This is a delightful alternative to the plethora of princess books being published these days, and a great choice for preschoolers or early elementary school students.

My 4 year old daughter wants me to say, "I like this book."

She received it for her birthday and I foresee it being a much loved book in our household not only for the cute illustrations, but the taste of history that leads littles to more investigation.
