Birdie’s Big-Girl Dress is a delightfully written children’s book by Sujean Rim. Birdie’s birthday party is tomorrow, and she is so thrilled about her big party; but when she tries on her favorite party dress, she finds it is too small for her. Birdie’s mom says they’ll go shopping tomorrow to get a new dress, and Birdie is overjoyed. Tomorrow comes, and Birdie has a difficult time finding that perfect dress for her special day. She walks out of the store empty handed and depleted. It is up to Birdie to find her creative side and to use her imagination to come up with the perfect “Birdie” party dress. Can she find one on time, and will it fit?

Sujean Rim certainly has a unique talent in writing children’s books. I absolutely adore the beautifully painted illustrations done by Liz Casal. Each page is filled with vibrant colors which make it exciting and fun to read. The story is easy for children to comprehend and the plot flows smoothly. My 8-year-old daughter read this book with me; she told me that this is one of her very favorite books that she has EVER read, and she is a tough critic! She loved looking through all of the picturesque and gorgeous dresses and was eager to read the words that went with the amazing illustrations. She also sat and viewed each page for a long while just enjoying the illustrations and taking it all in. It is every little girl’s dream to own such a pretty dress, and I highly recommend this book for all young girls. Sujean Rim is truly a genius at writing such a fun children’s book that overflows with excitement and bright imagery.
