Dear Girl,

Dear Girl. Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Paris Rosenthal. Illustrated by Holly Hatam. 2017. [December 2017] HarperCollins. 40 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Dear Girl, Keep that arm raised! You have smart things to say!

Premise/plot: Each spread in this picture book is a short message, a letter, if you will addressed to Dear Girl.
Dear Girl, Find people like you. Find people unlike you. 
Dear Girl, You won't be invited to every single party on the planet. (Which is really okay--can you imagine how exhausting that would be?)
Dear Girl, Sometimes you've just gotta stop...and DANCE! 
My thoughts:  This picture book is for readers of all ages. The messages are geared towards girls, but most of the advice is relevant to everyone. It would be fun to extend the experience by writing and illustrating letters of your own.
