Dr. Julia Mitchell, a pediatrician and literacy advocate, and her mother, author Alice Rhea Mitchell, kindly showed me the manuscript and illustrations before the book was published. What a warm and wonderful story about the ageless ritual of a child playing dress-up!
a warm and wonderful story about the ageless ritual of a child playing dress-up
Grandmothers can read aloud this book when they have the pleasure of hosting their granddaughters at fashionable teas in fancy dress on the back porch or in their kitchen. Mothers, busy with all that they do, can suggest that their children go play dress up on rainy days–just like in My Mama’s Closet.
