The Dress I'll Wear to the Party.

How special the young child feels all dressed up in grown-up clothes! Then mother appears and insists that those clothes are not the ones to wear to the party. The rhyming, cumulative rebus format of this tale invites the reader to participate in the dressing, undressing and redressing of the party-goer. The charm and familiar style of Nancy Winslow Parker's illustrations bring still further joy and smiles. Ages 3-5. Reviewed by Patricia L. Waters, Assistant Professor, Towson State University, Towson, MD
