(REAL NAME)   
 
Birdie's Big-Girl Shoes (Birdie Series)
1.  Birdie's Big-Girl Shoes (Birdie Series) by Sujean Rim
The list author says:
  "I'm with Birdie.  I LOOOVE gorgeous grown-up shoes (the page with her Mom's shoe closet is gasp-worthy) but after giving them a shot, the reality is that bare feet (or in my case, Birkenstocks, sigh) are just more practical and comfortable.  The art here is unsurpassed."

Birdie's Big-Girl Dress (Birdie Series)
2.  Birdie's Big-Girl Dress (Birdie Series) by Sujean Rim
The list author says:
  "Oh you know we love that Birdie girl.  It's her birthday and her favorite party dress is too small!  She can't find just the thing at the store (though I think the dress she's wearing on the first page would do it!) so she uses her imagination (and cool vintage taste) to solve her own dilemma."
$12.67   Used & New from: $0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

The Yellow Tutu
3.  The Yellow Tutu by Kirsten Bramsen
The list author says:
  "It's Margo's birthday and she gets the best present EVER - a yellow tutu (thank you so much for not making it pink!)  She thinks outside the box and decides to wear it to school...on her head.  You do your thing, Margo.  The illustrations are SO cute, can I please eat her, and her little friend Pearl, up with a spoon?"
$12.79   Used & New from: $0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Rosie Flo's Coloring Book
4.  Rosie Flo's Coloring Book by Roz Streeten
The list author says:
  "Rosie Flo coloring books are the best (there are several).  They provide the clothes - and they are SO fun and imaginative, and not dumbed down - you provide the feet, legs, arms, head and hair to make each fashion truly your own!  Check out the Kitchen and Garden theme coloring books, too - love those fashions!"
$8.09   Used & New from: $0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Ella Sarah Gets Dressed
5.  Ella Sarah Gets Dressed by Margaret Chodos-Irvine
The list author says:
  "Hey, Ella Sarah is no one's mannequin.  She wants to wear what she wants to wear, a girl after my own heart.  Luckily she has friends that feel the same way."
$13.56   Used & New from: $0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Polly's Pink Pajamas
6.  Polly's Pink Pajamas by Vivian French
The list author says:
  "Polly just wants to wear her pink pajamas all day, every day.  Who can blame her?  Panic ensues when she is invited to a party and has nothing to wear.  Her fashionable friends, and eventually the party-thrower himself, come to the rescue."
$12.40   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

The Red Shoes
7.  The Red Shoes by Gloria Fowler
The list author says:
  "Contemporary adaptation of a Hans Christan Anderson tale, emphasizing family love, perseverance, ingenuity and creativity.  And the pen and ink drawings are breathtaking!"
$13.45   Used & New from: $0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Urban Babies Wear Black (An Urban Babies Wear Black Book)
8.  Urban Babies Wear Black (An Urban Babies Wear Black Book) by Michelle Sinclair Colman
The list author says:
  "Too true, I love black on babies.  Not all black all the time, but it is a key basic, flattering at any age!"
$6.29   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match: Marisol McDonald no combina
9.  Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match: Marisol McDonald no combina by Monica Brown
The list author says:
  "Marisol wears mismatched clothes; I love her style.  But this is a story about being "mismatched" (different) in lots of ways, from mixed ethnicity to culinary fusion and combining games...and the awesomeness of being uniquely yourself."
$14.64   Used & New from: $10.64
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Too Purpley!
10.  Too Purpley! by Jean Reidy
The list author says:
  "Don't try to tell this little one what to wear - there is something wrong with almost everything in her wardrobe!  The illustrations are dizzying and adorable.  In the end, she's no prima donna, she just wants something comfy."
Used & New from: $2.67
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Daffodil
11.  Daffodil by Emily Jenkins
The list author says:
  "Daffodil and her two sisters, Violet and Rose, go to lots of parties with their Mom.  And so people can tell them apart, she made them all dresses in the colors of their names.  Only, it turns out, the girls have their own ideas about fashion, and it doesn't include matching party dresses!  Resonates strongly with this mom of three girls and proponent of individuality."
Used & New from: $0.01

The Spiffiest Giant in Town
12.  The Spiffiest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson
The list author says:
  "Think fashion is only for girls?  Think again.  George is tired of being the scruffiest giant in town, so he gets decked out in all-new duds.  A series of animals in trouble along his path home, though, bring him round to what's most important.  Totally fun to read aloud with different voices and accents."
$6.99   Used & New from: $2.89
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (56 customer reviews)

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (Caldecott Medal Book)
13.  Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (Caldecott Medal Book) by Simms Taback
The list author says:
  "Speaking of fashionable men, Joseph is both stylish and thrifty.  When his coat becomes old and worn, he turns it into a jacket, then a vest, then a scarf, etc.  Crazy cool illustrations and if you can read music, the song the story is based on is in the back.  (We got the Scholastic DVD from the library and recorded the song on my iPhone so we could learn it - Joseph's not the only thrifty one!)"
$12.96   Used & New from: $0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (91 customer reviews)

I Had a Favorite Dress
14.  I Had a Favorite Dress by Boni Ashburn
The list author says:
  "A "Joseph Had a Little Overcoat" for young girls.  She outgrew her favorite dress so they turned it into a shirt; the sleeves tore so it became a tank!  Fun and whimsical illustrations, and with the great modern message of re-purposing!"
$14.01   Used & New from: $2.13
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Fifty Dresses That Changed the World (Design Museum Fifty)
15.  Fifty Dresses That Changed the World (Design Museum Fifty) by Design Museum
The list author says:
  "For the more serious, and slightly older, fashionista, here are real dresses with their descriptions/stories and how/why they impacted fashion history.  Just fun to look through!"
$15.49   Used & New from: $4.48
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Fifty Shoes That Changed the World (Design Museum Fifty)
16.  Fifty Shoes That Changed the World (Design Museum Fifty) by Michael Czerwinski
The list author says:
  "Got someone who loves shoes?  Wow, so fun to look through!"

Designer Doodles: Over 100 Designs to Complete and Create
17.  Designer Doodles: Over 100 Designs to Complete and Create by Nellie Ryan
The list author says:
  "Wow, my daughter got this for her 5th birthday and it has been a source of delight and creativity for almost a year!"
$11.07   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (86 customer reviews)

Double Pink
18.  Double Pink by Kate Feiffer
The list author says:
  "If you've got a pink addict, reading this could either make it better or make it worse.  I was seeing bubble gum by the end, but it's a nice lesson in chromatic moderation."
$15.28   Used & New from: $0.01
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Fancy Nancy
19.  Fancy Nancy by Jane O'Connor
The list author says:
  "Are we all Fancy-Nancied out?  I try not to be because I really do love this first, original book.  Poor Nancy is surrounded by fashion ineptitude but does her best to educate her family.  Accessories for everyone!  In the end, and at the heart, though, is the timeless message of love and acceptance, regardless of fashion sense."

The Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook
20.  The Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook by Joyce Lankester Brisley
The list author says:
  "We LOVE Milly Molly Mandy!  A super adorable chapter book that chronicles M-M-M's small English town life.  Milly always wears and pink and white striped frock.  When it gets worn out, in one of the last chapters, it's time for a new dress, but what material to choose?  Read it to see!"
$12.02   Used & New from: $5.15
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Not All Princesses Dress in Pink
21.  Not All Princesses Dress in Pink by Jane Yolen
The list author says:
  "Cutie explanation that princesses wear soccer uniforms, overalls, etc. - whatever is comfortable and functional, nicely driving home the point that girls can do or wear anything and still be a "princess" if she wants to."
$12.75   Used & New from: $8.33
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

The Purple Coat (Reading Rainbow Books)
22.  The Purple Coat (Reading Rainbow Books) by Amy Hest
The list author says:
  "We got this from the library and as I read it to my girls I thought they might be bored - it's not overly exciting.  But they were riveted and wanted to find out what happens - does she get a purple coat or have to stick with the navy blue she gets every year?"
$7.54   Used & New from: $0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Shoe-La-La!
23.  Shoe-La-La! by Karen Beaumont
The list author says:
  "I will say my girls love this book.  I love all the pictures of shoes.  But I am annoyed that these girls can't make a decision at the shoe store, and after all that trying on they leave empty-handed - seriously?  Some of those shoes are awesome.  But I guess the author was going for some kind of message - they go home and decorate the shoes they already have."
$13.15   Used & New from: $0.01
