I'll buy you a skirt that won't show the dirt, to go with the socks from the local shops, to go with the shoes from Grandpa. In a cumulative rhyme, family members describe the clothes they intend to give a little girl to go with her shoes from Grandpa.
I do thoroughly love this book. It's not just the clever writing, the rhythm in the reading and the generosity of the family that I love the most. It's how Jessie, the young main character, displays comfort in acknowledging and expressing her own desires and thoughts. Her inner strength. This is something to encourage in our children.
A sweet book that is great for all children, but an age guide could be aged 2 to 8.
