Synopsis

Taylor loved her tutu and wore it all the time, day and night. She wore it to school and she wore it in the pool, much to the mild annoyance and amusement of her friends and family. Will she ever give up that tutu?

With style and humor, this charming book addresses young children's attachments to specific articles of clothing. Hiroe Nakata's playful illustrations are the perfect complement to Michelle Sinclair Colman's lively rhyming text.
