Description:

As the year passes, the narrator's favorite dress goes through a series of creative changes, from dress to shirt to tank top to scarf and so on, until all that's left of it is a good memory. Assisted by her patient and crafty mama, the narrator finds that when disaster strikes her favorite things, she doesn't need to make mountains out of molehills - she 'makes molehills out of mountains' instead! Structured around the days of the week, the story is also illustrated to show the passing of the seasons, a perfect complement to the themes of growing older and keeping hold (and letting go) of special mementos.

Quotes:

Everyone is smiling in the buoyant confections created by illustrator Julia Denos - including, it's fair to say, young readers looking at them. Endearing picture book., Wall Street Journal

Denos's multimedia illustrations reinforce the narrator's vibrant personality and the amazing transformations of the dress while capturing the action and emotion of the story. This book is sure to capture the imaginations of would-be seamstresses; children who can't bear to part with a favorite item; and those who want to reduce, reuse, recycle., School Library Journal

A spunky story about adjusting to change with creativity and style. Tailor-made, so to speak, for the Etsy generation of DIY enthusiasts., Publishers Weekly

What could have been yet another example of kindergarten consumerism instead becomes one of resourcefulness and resilience., New York Times

Breezy in style, they smartly stitch each scene of alteration as the not-so-little girl sashays through the days of the week and the seasons. A charming interpretation of an old story that will speak to young fashionistas., Kirkus
