5 STAR! Reviewed By Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite
"The Dirt Girl by Jodi Dee is a picture story book dedicated to all children who feel different, be it because of their appearance, their family background, the color of their skin or simply because they enjoy a different kind of lifestyle than the majority. The latter is the case for Zafera. She's a rather pretty girl with lush ginger hair, a sweet smile, and a natural appearance. And nature is something she cares about a lot. When she's ready to go to school, she is looking forward to meeting other boys and girls, but soon finds out that they judge her negatively because she always has flowers in her hair and some dirt on her clothes. Zafera sees a chance to win over the other kids with a birthday party. She invites them and all of them accept. The children have no idea how surprised they will be when they see Zafera's home! The design of The Dirt Girl by Jodi Dee is very beautiful. You can lose yourself in the illustrations, and I found Zafera's home to be beautiful. I'd like to live there myself. It's a bit like a mix of Hobbit and elf homes! Just looking at the images actually relaxes you. The story is the main draw of the book. It's a lovely little tale of a girl who is different - but in a way that should be encouraged. She is mocked by others because they do not understand her. After all, they are used to a world of technology and know little of nature. And as we know, the unknown causes fear and fear causes people to lash out in various ways. In this case, it's a form of bullying. It's a beautiful book with a beautiful story that should be part of every child's library! 5 Star Review, Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite (posted on Barnes & Nobles)"
