      It was good, but, not great. The book is about a little girl with opinions on what she wants to wear and parents that don't believe she should make her own decisions about what to wear. I do like that the parents just tell her that her outfit will be too fancy instead of telling her that her outfit is 'bad' or 'doesn't match' or some similar thing. I let me daughter wear mismatched leggings and tutu's and her combinations always turned out cute and kid appropriate. I've never understood parents [...]

      Precious! Totally the cutest book ever! Ella wants to dress a certain way and no one wants to let her until she has a fit. At the end of the story, when she's finally ready, you see why she is dressed perfectly. Love the illustrations too.

      Ella Sarah Gets Dressed by Margaret Chodos-Irvine is a beautifully illustrated children’s book. The book is colorful with large bright colored pictures throughout the book. There was no way of determining Ella Sarah’s race or ethnicity. Most children would have been able to identify with Ella Sara. I liked this book because it reframes the thinking of parents about letting children choose their own clothes. Moreover, it illustrates a positive way that children can be assertive in expressing [...]

      Ella Sarah Gets Dressed by Margaret Chodos-Irvine is a story of a little girl who insists on picking her own outfit to wear, despite other suggestions from her family.The bold, bright illustrations were created using a variety of printmaking techniques on Rives paper. My favorite images are blue outfit, yellow T-shirt, fist shaking, getting dressed, red hat, friends, and party. The many patterns should attract young viewers. Particularly striking are the double page spreads of the red hat, mirro [...]

      (Patterned/ Predictable Books)I think this book is simply amazing. The colors are bright and bold and go right along with text as any childrens picture book should! The illustations focused solely on Ella Sarah and her clothing. Although other dialogue from other characters was in the book their faces were not shown which kept the focus on Ella Sarah and the bright colors of her clothing. I liked that the pages were broken up into white pages with little illustration whereever the pattern of Ell [...]

      Like most preschoolers, Ella Sarah has interesting, if not questionable, fashion sense, but she and her friends think her outfit is fabulous, and that is what matters. There are several things to love about the illustrations in this picture book. One is the eye-popping bright colors, which fill every spread and draw the eye right into the story. Another is Ella Sarah’s sad faces, and tantrum motions, which increase with intensity the more her family suggests that she conform to their style of [...]

      I really enjoyed this book. It showed that the main character wanted to be independent and wear an outfit she picked out herself. It reminded me of my little cousin and how she wants to do everything on her own. My cousin would get mad if her parents try to help her in any way. I think that if children read this book they would gain a little independence and maybe want to choose their next outfit for the following day.I loved how the illustrations had so many bright colors. I also enjoyed the re [...]
