I'm Gonna Climb a Mountain in my Patent Leather Shoes by Marilyn Singer
She's going camping. She's also going in all her finery. No one said you had to sacrifice style just to camp.
Abrams Books for Young Readers sent me a copy of this book for review. It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.
Lynne Avril has given this girl fiery ginger hair that's all curly and Ms. Singer has made her a real girlie girl. The fun part is that she doesn't let anything slow her down. She climbs the mountain in her patent leather shoes, wears clothes with sparklies and cute jammies and she lets nothing bother her. She even searches for Bigfoot, swims, and crawls through a cave. Good thing she brought a good supply of clothes!
This is a cute picture book with an irrepressible character with her own stylish tastes. I didn't have as nice clothes as she did, but I did go camping when I was young and did the things she did. Have you and your little one done that yet?
