Picture Book Review: The Dress and the Girl - Lu and Bean ReadThank you! Around the turn of the last century, a Greek village girl wears her beloved red dress as she goes about her daily life only to be separated from it when the family emigrates. The child and her dress lead a seemingly idyllic, nature-filled life under blue skies, among whitewashed buildings, but they long for adventure. For unexplained reasons, the family boards a ship, where girl and dress play and go to school as before, details that subtly convey the length of the passage. Upon arrival at Ellis Island, the family is separated from the trunk in which the dress is now packed. The trunk, unclaimed, circles the globe in search of its rightful owners, eventually landing in a secondhand shop. Now grown, the girl spots her dress in the window and buys it for her own daughter.

But one day the girl and her family leave Greece for the United States, and the two are separated when the girl's trunk is lost. Many years later, though, the dress finds its way back to the girl——now, herself, the mother of a little girl——when the girl spots it in a thrift store window. The two are finally reunited, and the memories of their times together flooding back.
