Who’s the Prettiest – A little girl has seven dresses, one for each day of the week and one for each colour of the rainbow. But, all the dresses argue about who is the prettiest. They cannot even stand to be next to each other in the closet or on the washing line. What will happen, how will they sort this issue out?
A beautifully illustrated children’s story about the foolishness of bickering and jealousy, including colour recognition and days of the week.
Author: Janaki Sooriyarachchi
