The Lime Green Secret by Georgia Graham
It doesn't take long before Gloria is wearing the outfit for play. Disaster strikes quickly in the form of a big lime green stain on the front of the dress. How will she keep this stain hidden and still wear the dress at the wedding?
This story vividly reminded me of the many times I dressed my children in their finery and admonished them not to get it dirty. Ha, it never worked for long. Author Georgia Graham has written a charming story and the chalk pastel pictures are wonderful. They are colourful and full of rich detail. Even the inside of the cover paper contains a bonus drawing.
