SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
A girl hopes for a yellow party dress in Manuela's Gift by Claire B. Cotts. With drought in the land, times are hard in Manuela's village, and her birthday gift is a reworked hand-me-down, sadly, in blue. How she comes to terms with disappointment makes for an illustrative story.
The fluid, rhythmic text is well matched by large, brightly colored, primitive paintings, perfect for sharing.
