Book of the Week: The Dress and the Girl by Camille Andros, illustrated by Julie Morstad

In this book

Back when time seemed slower and life simpler, there was a dress. A dress much like many others, made for a girl by her mother. The dress loved the girl, and the girl loved the dress…

So begins this lyrical, lovely story of a girl’s love for her dress, the passage of time, and the power of both memory and heritage.

Camille Andros, a mother of six and picture book author, will be joining me soon on the Read-Aloud Revival podcast.

Recommended for:

Ages 4-8, (but you might love it even more than your kids do!)

About the Book
**Description from Amazon: A little girl and her favorite dress dream of an extraordinary life. They enjoy simple pleasures together on a beautiful Greek island. They watch the sunset, do chores, and pick wildflowers on the way home. One day, the dress and the girl must leave the island and immigrate to the United States. Upon arrival, the girl is separated from the trunk carrying her favorite dress, and she fears her dress is lost forever. Many years later, the girl—now all grown up—spots the dress in a thrift store window. As the two are finally reunited, the memories of their times together come flooding back. While the girl can no longer wear the dress, it’s now perfect for her own daughter—and the new journey of a girl and her dress begins. Featuring lush illustrations, The Dress and the Girl is a stunning picture book about memory and the power of the items we hold most dear.
