A New Dress for Maya by Malorie Blackman

Book cover for A New Dress for Maya
This picture book subtlety suggests to children that it is important to be an individual and not always follow the crowd. The little girl learns the value of accepting her parents' decisions. They could easily purchase the dress for her; but Maya's mother chooses to make one for her. Maya, like many children, thinks that the "store-bought" dress is better than the homemade one! How wrong she is!
