My oldest is a blooming reader and she and I like to go to the library and get short chapter books to read together and on our most recent trip we picked up The Hundred Dresses by
We read it and at the end I asked her what the story was about. She told me the highlights and things that happened along the story then she said, "It's really about being nice to others even when they are different then you because everyone needs a friend." ---insert happy mama tears here--- "And that not saying something when someone else is mean is just as bad as being the mean one." By George she got it!! I'm so proud. :)
So if you haven't picked up a book by Eleanor Estes you should. She has quite a few available and my daughters and I will certainly be checking out her other offerings. Here's a link: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/c/eleanor-estes
