This is a really cute book that my CT has read to her class. The book takes place in a fairytale land. Where Irene's mother is a dress maker, who is to sick to get the dress for the Duchess to her during the snow storm. So Irene being the brave little girl that she is takes the dress to the duchess. It is a cute book that we used to wonder and question. This is a really good book to instill the basic thinking that a person needs to do while reading a book. We also used it to infer about certain characters.
