Mirror, Mirror, by Barbara J. Freeman, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
Tina was a young girl with brown hair, brown eyes and brown skin to match. One day the mirror in her bedroom began to shake and rattle, as it posed a question to the girl, "Mirror Mirror on the wall, wants to know who is the prettiest girl you can recall?" Tina thought about it and determined the prettiest girl must be an actress she'd seen on TV. The mirror rattled and shook, and told Tina she'd be back another day to see if the girl could correctly answer her question. The mirror came back day after day until finally Tina's search for the answer to the mirror's rhyme came to her. Ultimately, to the mirror's satisfaction, Tina acknowledged the beauty she possessed both inside and out and stated that she was the prettiest girl she could recall.
