Dress Like a Girl


What does it mean to ‘Dress Like a Girl‘? Patricia Toht, acclaimed poet of All Aboard the London Bus, and other Bookwagon beloved works, contemplates where and how we should ‘dress like a girl’ in ‘this big wide world.’

Could it be when we soar in a rocket ship through outer space, or lead an orchestra? Perhaps it’s bold colours worn by the emergency services?

Girls wear safari tones and patterns when exploring. They’d need to have deep pockets there, and when they’re working in medicine and research too.

Special clothing is required in any marine profession, and again, when exploring the poles.

So, what does it mean to ‘Dress Like a Girl‘? Our selected interest or profession? Other people? Or our own preferences? Patricia Toht offers wise, reasoned and inspiring advice in this beautifully pitched and paced rhyming picture book. Lorian Tu-Dean’s positive, white framed pictures emphasise the message to ‘every girl’, and/or every person, to ‘make your own rules/ in this big wide world’.
