Great problem solving story that allows a child to feel she has an element of control
Adorable little Kate is quite the fashionista. Each morning she has a plan and it doesn't quite match her mother's ideas. Whether her clothes are not suitable for the weather, or the dress is dirty, Kate stubbornly refuses to wear what her mother suggests. The arguments make her late for school and a terrible pattern is developing. Good thing the Dressy Fairy arrives to aide Kate in picking her outfits the night before and then stands guard over them while the moon is out. A perfect solution for both parties and peace is restored to the household. An entertaining book that is that is solution oriented. Kate is allowed her creativity, while her parent's limit the choices and it still ends up being the child's decision. A great way to help both a parent and child solve a problem that could occur in any home in any country.
