Early Book Review: A Pattern for Pepper by Julie Kraulis

A Pattern for Pepper is a picture book by Julie Kraals that is currently scheduled for release on August 1 2017. Pepper is getting a dress made for a special occasion. It's the first dress that has ever been made just for her, and she wants it to be perfect. But what pattern is right for her? Pepper is particular, and nothing works at first. Dotted Swiss? Too plain. Houndstooth? Not enough color. Pinstripe? Too glum. As Pepper learns about each fabric, she finds a reason why it's just not the one. Will Pepper ever be able to find the perfect pattern? 

A Pattern for Pepper is a charming story about a young girl seeking the perfect fabric for a special dress. She is shown a series of patterns, complete with some history and information about the pattern. I learned some history and neat tidbits about fabric and patterns that were completely new to me. I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about the subject matter, but was glad to have such a board range of fabrics explored. I think some young readers or listeners mightiest a little bored with the sheer amount of information- particularly those with no interest in fabric or patterns. However, the information is delivered in a way that many will enjoy the story and take in the information.
