Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-A story in rhyme about a little girl who balks at getting dressed in the morning, until her mother distracts her by making up a game. By having Clara make various faces in the mirror, ranging from "very mean" to "very mad" to "sick" to "happy and silly," the little girl becomes so preoccupied that before long, with her mother's assistance, she is fully dressed and ready to go. Full-page illustrations in bright colors capture the behavior of the recalcitrant child and the patient resourcefulness of the mother. Children will readily identify with Clara, while parents of preschoolers may be gently amused by a trick they could try on their own stubborn offspring. Slight, but probably applicable in many situations.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
From the Publisher
"Clara Ann has no interest in getting dressed, so her mother invents a game in which Clara Ann makes faces to express different emotions—in the meantime, her mother surreptitiously helps her get dressed. The bright paintings don't always show the scared or angry faces the girl is supposed to be making but are otherwise quite lively. Though a bit forced, the rhyming text is appealing." Horn Book
