It's time for Birdie's very first haircut, and the miniature fashionista yearns for more than just a simple trim. Should she choose an updo, a perm, or a ballerina bun? She looks through pictures, books, lots of magazines - even Mommy's yearbook - to find the best new look, and she and Mommy head to the salon. Her haircut looks fantastic, but begins to sag later on at the playground... because Birdie doesn't just love fashion - she likes to run and jump and play! In the end, Mommy reminds her that the most perfect Birdie look is the one that lets her be herself.
Sujean Rim's beautiful watercolor and fabric collages will have fashionistas of every age giggling as she showcases Birdie with iconic hairstyles from decades past. Another delightful adventure in the Birdie series that offers a playful balance of fashion, fun, and heart!
"Birdie, who tried out 'big-girl' dresses and shoes in her previous picture books, struggles to find the perfect look after waking up with 'extra unruly' hair one morning. With a salon appointment set, Birdie scours magazines and interviews her friends for ideas, giving Rim the opportunity to picture Birdie in coifs that nod to such style icons as Audrey, Farrah and Leia. Rim's blend of painting and fabric collage continue to strike a smart balance between fulfilling Birdie's chic fantasies and allowing her to be herself, a point driven home in the final pages when Birdie's mother reminds her that her play-tousled 'do 'looks like YOU!'

Itandrsquo;s summer, and Tallulah is excited about going to dance camp. Sheandrsquo;ll get to take plenty of ballet classes. Sheandrsquo;ll have to take tap, too, and sheandrsquo;s NOT excited about that. Sheandrsquo;s never taken tap before, so sheandrsquo;ll be a beginning beginner. And sheandrsquo;s rightandmdash;tap class is not much fun. Plus thereandrsquo;s a girl her same age whoandrsquo;s maddeningly good at tap dancing. But that same girl isnandrsquo;t very good at ballet . . . could it be that she and Tallulah have something in common?
