Review: 10,000 Dresses
10,000 Dresses by Marcus Ewert is a charming tale of a “boy” named Bailey who dreams of wearing dresses. His parents and brother tell him that boys don’t wear dresses and Bailey is sad because she doesn’t feel like a boy. Bailey finally meets a friend that understands the desire to wear dresses and helps her achieve that goal. It is a story with beautiful illustrations by Rex Ray that uses just enough words to say what is needed. I highly recommend it for children of all ages (adults too), although it is definitely a book that would be enjoyed by the under 10 crowd. 10,000 Dresses helps us understand the workings of the gender variant child’s mind from their point of view and it is very nicely done.
The book is available for sale on www.amazon.com for purchase. You may also “friend” the Facebook Group “10,000 Dresses” to leave comments and show your support!
