“Mary Had a Little Glam” is a children’s book written by Tammi Sauer and delightfully illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton. This fun and stylish twist on several beloved nursery rhymes features budding diva Mary, who jazzes up not only her own attire but gives much needed spice to the outfits of her fellow students at Mother Goose Elementary, including Snack Helper Georgie Porgie, Sheep Keeper Little Bo Peep, and Messenger Little Boy Blue. The final lesson of having one’s attire appropriate for the activity reminds us that it’s important to avoid being so stylish that we can’t enjoy ourselves. I love the glittery title and had such fun reading the rhymes and I think this cute book will provide hours of entertainment and stimulate discussion, especially with its whimsical view of familiar childhood figures.
This little Mary has STYLE! In this fun take on Mother Goose, fashion-forward Mary helps some of childhood's most beloved characters go glam. From the kid who lives in a shoe (and dons some fab footwear, too) to Jack, who breaks his crown but gets a great new one, Mary's school friends look fantastic in their finery. But are they now too well dressed for recess? Not to worry—Mary always shows her flair for what to wear!
