I Had a Favorite Dress

I Had a Favorite Dress - Boni Ashburn, Julia Denos A girl loves her favorite dress, but it is now too small for her. Her clever mother shapes it into new things the girl can wear. As the girl grows, the dress is transformed into a shirt, then a tank top, then a scarf, then socks, until it finally becomes a beautiful hair bow.A nice story about using creativity to solve a problem.“I had a favorite dress that was my favoritest dress ever. I wore it every Tuesday because that was my favorite day of the week.But one Tuesday, I put on my favorite dress…and it was too short! Mama said so. Uh-oh! I couldn’t bear the tought of not wearing my favoritest dress. So I moaned and groaned, I complained, distraught…‘You’re overwrought, dear; it’s clear,’ Mama said. ‘Don’t make mountains out of molehills. Make molehills out of mountains.’”
