Talitha is a little plaid skirt who has a big job to do. She holds an important tradition together by traveling with each girl in the family to her two-year-old photo shoot. She loves and hopes like the little girls around her and wishes to belong—even though she may be just a skirt wanting to serve her family. As she travels through the changing times and across the country in her special role, Talitha’s feisty and hopeful spirit speaks to young children everywhere. This heartwarming story about belonging and never giving up is based on a true family tradition and is told by one of the girls who once wore her.
