Ella Sarah has a very particular idea of what she wants to wear. She refuses her mother, father, and sister when they suggest more traditional outfits and insists on another colorful combination of her favorites. She finds a perfect dress, to suit her style, when her friends arrive for the tea party. The illustrations are so bright and interesting making Ella Sarah's clothing really stand out, especially with all the poka dots and stripes. The illustrations make the book come to life. From left to right, top to bottom, there was something to capture the eye. The bright bold colors and large usage of patterns made the images stand out. Young children can picture themselves in her fierce shoes because everyone expresses their individuality through fashion. I feel like more parents should let the child wear what they want, because it shows that they are their own individual person. ( )
