See KidlitWomen for daily links to posts by the children’s lit community, in celebration of Women’s History Month and focusing on improving the climate for social and gender equality. I plan to share my favorite books focused on girl characters and/or written by women through this month.
Lucy has seventeen dolls, but Smelly Baby is her favorite. Lucy takes her lovey everywhere and Smelly Baby is well-loved; a little raggedy and a little smelly. Lucy’s older sister Ivy complains, but when Smelly Baby is lost, Ivy and the family come together to try to first, find Smelly Baby, and then comfort Lucy. Will Lucy get her favorite lovey back? Sweet story with sweet illustrations! Buy the book!
