Zoe Gets Ready

By Bethanie Deeney Murguia   

Scholastic Inc | ISBN 9780545342155 Hardcover
40 Pages | 9.34" x 10.32" | Ages 3 to 5

Fashion meets imagination in a story where getting dressed inspires big dreams!

Each day is full of possibilities, and Zoe wants to be ready for everything this one might bring. But that makes getting dressed really, really hard! If it's a twirling day, she'll need to wear the purple skirt. But if it's a cartwheeling day, she'll want the polka-dot tights. Or it might be a hiding day, perfect for the flower crown that will help her blend into the garden... or a flying day, which demands butterfly wings!

As the clothes pile up and Mama tells her it's time to go, there's only one way Zoe can be sure she's prepared for all the adventures ahead-a solution that will have parents laughing in recognition and kids nodding in satisfaction. Zoe Gets Ready is perfect for all those little girls who wouldn't have things any other way.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Zoe Gets Ready

"This seemingly simple idea subtly encompasses much larger themes about creativity and independence. With layers of meaning, a spunky, fun-loving heroine, and clever use of the butterfly motif throughout, this one is a keeper." -Booklist

"The cartoon simplicity matches the light text and gentle humor, and sparkles on the cover accent the many outfits with great pizzazz. Add this one to the growing list of fun stories for young ladies with style." -School Library Journal
