Bailey dreams of thousands of different dresses every night. She tells her mom that she wants one, only to be told that she is a boy, and that he shouldn't wear dresses. Bailey repeatedly dreams of more beautiful and exquisite dresses. Everyone Bailey tells about the dresses and her desire for one responds by telling her that he is a boy, and dresses aren't for him. Finally Bailey meets a girl who is sewing dresses, and Bailey joins her and is not judged because Bailey feels more like a girl and wants to wear dresses.

A book like this is really important to help kids see that there are a lot of different ways people live their lives, and even if someone is different from you, that person still deserves acceptance and the right to live their life the way that they choose.

I thought that was a really good book because it talked about a young boy named Bailey who is trying to figure out his identity. Bailey is a boy who has been creating his own dresses because he really loves dresses. When he had went and told his mom about wanting a shinny sparkly dress, she denied him that. And than he went to go talk to his dad and he too denied him. In the end, his mom helped him get fabric to make his own dresses. ( )

I like this book as a conversation starter. I think its good to talk with kids and kind of introduce them to different ideas. Childhood is a very important developmental time and its a time to explore and figure out who you are. And its good to talk with the kids about how Bailey probably felt and things like that. Its good to try and get them empathetic about important topics of today. ( )

This is about a boy named Bailey, who loved dresses. All he wanted was to wear dresses because he did not feel like a boy he felt like a girl. This book is a LGBTQ book. It uses the pronouns she to describe Bailey because even though she was born a boy because she does not feel like a boy. Every time she tells her parents and people around her that she dreamt about a dress, she gets shot down and is told that she is a boy and boys shouldn't dream about dresses. This book was interesting for me to read because I don't have much experience reading LGBTQ books. Therefore, it was different for me to read the pronouns she and her, when her parents and people around her were calling her a boy. I like how there are more of these types of books out now, because it can help kids in the LGBTQ community relate to characters in these books and this is important ( )

A book about a young boy who feels more like a girl. He dreams about trying on beautiful dresses. However, her mom, dad and brother all refused to accept how she felt. He goes for a run and met an older woman who is trying to make a dress, and Bailey helps her create a dress.
