The narrator of this charming picture book loves her summer hat, but as the seasons change, her hat isn’t always appropriate for every occasion. She must use her crafting skills to turn the hat into a work of art, perfect for every season and holiday. Featuring the same characters from the first book, I Had a Favorite Dress, along with the hip, eye-catching art style that won it so many fans, this book is perfect for young crafters and their stylish parents.


"Children will enjoy the idea of taking a hat and—with a little tape, ribbon, and ingenuity—decorating it to help celebrate important days."
School Library Journal, Maryann H. Owen, Children’s Literature Specialist, Mt. Pleasant, WI
"Multicultural characters and the rhythmic, repetitious phrases make this an excellent pick for read-alouds."
