Book Review/Giveaway: Mismatched Moira. Ends March 15th

Mis Matched

Mismatched Moira by Alisa Brookins, illustrated by Linda Merritt

About the Book: Little Moira Goldstein has crowned herself The Queen of Color and why shouldn’t she? Who else but Moira would pair red sweatpants with a fuchsia tutu and top it off with a pink pompom sweater? What style! What fun! What color! Trouble is no one else in her family is very colorful…or are they?

My Review: Moira is the Queen of color. She happens to be the only one in the Goldstein family who pairs a hot pink with a fire engine red. She will wear one yellow sneaker with a black shoe.  She is a fashionista and crowns herself the Queen of Color. Her family couldn’t understand why she loves to mismatch her clothing. Her mother even suggested in picking out her clothes for school but Moira feels she is capable in doing so herself, as she is the Queen of Color she feels colorful and fabulous.

This is a nice book for every little girl that loves to dress themselves no matter how mismatched her clothing is, she still feel fabulous. Book illustrated by Linda K. Merritt.

Pages: 40

  5. What a neat premise for a book. I made my Goddaughter and sons a box of dress up clothes from our Halloween costumes and things from the thrift store. They love it.

  7. How freespirited Moira is! I love that she shows her individuality.

  8. I think the concept behind this book is great! It should empower little girls to be individuals and to not care what others think about them! As a little girl, I wore outrageous clothing and it’s certainly helped with my confidence as I grew older. I feel like I’m my own person and an individual. I certainly don’t conform to others and I think it’s important for children to learn this while they’re young.

  10. This reminded me of my 5 daughters growing up and thought they looked wonderful when allowed to dress themselves. They looked more like clowns lol Of course I never said that to them and if we were staying in they could wear whatever. 🙂

  14. I think it’s great that Moira Goldstein isn’t afraid to express herself and is very creative in her wardrobe choices.

  15. This book could describe both of my kids. At early ages they have decided that they can dress themselves, as well as do most things by themselves. We would all enjoy reading this together. I love the illustrations- they are so colorful.
