My thoughts: Pepper is totally adorable and very particular, as you will learn when you read the book. This book while taking through the ritual of a little girl picking out fabrics and patterns for her first custom made dress for a special occasion, also teaches you a lot. Who knew paisley was actually a pattern named after a place in Switzerland? I didn’t and I learned that from here along with facts about many more interesting patterns. As Pepper works with Mr.Taylor (the tailor!) to find the perfect pattern for herself, we are treated to learning the patterns, the process of dressmaking (in the simplest terms), and of how kids might make choices (which is pure fun!).
craft/sew/knit also enjoyed it – mainly for the information)

Description: Let your children discover the works of poet Emily Dickinson in Poetry for Kids: Emily Dickinson.

Poet, professor, and scholar Susan Snively has carefully chosen 35 poems of interest to children and their families.
