Nancy Bess Had a Dress

Perfect Picture Book Friday

Nancy Bess Had a Dress (Gnome Road Publishing, March 2024) by Claire Annette Noland and llustrated by Angela C. Hawkins is a lovely picture book set in the 1930s and shows how a dress is reused for many projects.

Nancy Bess goes to town with her parents and chooses a flour sack because of the pattern. She makes a dress and when it’s too small she makes an apron. When it tears…

This is such a sweet story and the theme of recycling and reusing is great for today’s readers.
