KIRKUS REVIEW

Little Lulu fashions a unique birthday gift for her grandmother. Mommy, busy at her computer, is little help when Lulu asks about a present for grandmother’s imminent birthday: “Grandma will like whatever you give her.” Red-headed Lulu, herself a big fan of accessories, finds an old straw hat in Mommy’s closet and decides to decorate it with all of her grandmother’s favorite things. Outside, she collects feathers and leaves and flowers. It’s not enough, the hat looks too plain. Out comes ribbon, tulle from a tutu, a necklace and the requisite supplies: scissors and tape and glue. A bird’s nest on top completes the creation. “Beautiful!” Lulu declares, a sentiment echoed later by the surprised grandma. Browne’s watercolors display nice composition and avoid extraneous elements. A good springboard to a craft project; otherwise, a slight, pleasant tale. (Picture book. 3-7)
