A Beautiful Girl
Macmillan, Aug 8, 2006 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
On her way to market Jenna makes four new friends. Along with Baby Elephant, there's Robin, who thinks Jenna has a very silly beak; Fly, who wonders where her hundred eyes are; and Goldfish, who thinks she has very goofy gills. Kirkus has written that "the power and grace in Schwartz's spare style and language lies in the fact that she never condescends to young readers--she just compares notes." Here she once again completely and convincingly captures the world of a child in a beautiful and winning picture book about . . . a beautiful girl.

Review: A Beautiful GirlUser Review - Kaycee Greenwood - Goodreads
As I was reading this book tons of lesson plans jumped in to my head. This would be a great book to introduce sense and what we use them for. The illustration are very colorful and the writing was very loving and warm. Read full review
