Annie's Plaid Shirt
Annie loves her plaid shirt and wears it everywhere. But one day her mom tells Annie that she must wear a dress to her uncle’s wedding. Annie protests, but her mom insists and buys her a fancy new dress anyway. Annie is miserable. She feels weird in dresses. Why can’t her mom understand?
Then Annie has an idea. But will her mom agree?
Annie's Plaid Shirt will inspire readers to be themselves and will touch the hearts of those who love them.
STACY B. DAVIDS, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and works as a school psychologist. She’s also a former special education teacher. Her inspiration for writing ANNIE'S PLAID SHIRT came from feeling pressure throughout her life to conform to society’s rules about gender. Even as a baby she reportedly yanked pink bows out of her hair. As an adult she says, does, and wears what she wants.
Stacy lives in Miami, Florida. Just a few of her favorite things are cats, chocolate, and of course, plaid shirts.
