This sweet story brought back many memories of my own daughter starting Kindergarten and her feelings about having to wear a plaid jumper every day. I wish this book had been around all those years ago. I love that Molly learns that it doesn’t matter what we wear but that what is in our hearts is what truly matters. Such a beautiful message.
A wonderful picture book for children starting school!

This is a wonderful picture book for children starting school! Although Molly is a Catholic child attached to the miniature nun’s habit her mother made for her, any child attached to a costume and reluctant to exchange it for a school uniform should relate to this story. I’ve known kids unwilling to give up a superhero or ballerina costume they practically live in to dress more conventionally for a special occasion or a new phase in life. Molly’s final understanding that God loves you for who you are on the inside can also help children feel less self-conscious about their appearance in general. This darling story, along with beautiful illustrations by the author, made me smile throughout. I received an ebook copy of this book from the author, and once I saw the first page, could not wait to start it. I highly recommend this book for parents, grandparents, and the young children in their care.
This is a sweet story, with very real questions that children have.

This is a sweet story, with very real questions that children have!! My girls love it. After reading it, we had a meaningful conversation about our inner beauty, the role clothes play in honoring God, and real fears when someone is about to do something new (like starting school). The illustrations are beautiful, clear, and unique too!
This is a cute book with a good lesson. It is beautifully illustrated!

This is a cute book with a good lesson. It is beautifully illustrated, very Catholic, and is funny, not preachy. A perfect gift for Catholic students and their grandparents who remember what it was like to wear the uniform!
