|aThroughout the day, Holly is eager to prove that she is a big girl who is able to dress, eat, and clean up all by herself, and she sort of, nearly, mostly succeeds, but it is at bedtime where she excels.
Holly’s not a baby anymore. She can dress, eat, and clean up all by herself . . . almost!Holly’s eager to dress herself and brush her own hair—and she almost, kind of, nearly succeeds. When her clothes end up mismatched or her hair is sticking up, her family is always ready to step in and help. But there’s one thing she does perfectly: she hugs Daddy good night before going right to sleep! This sweet, simple story is one that all preschoolers will relate to.
