Focus on Children’s Books: Get Dressed!
Todays featured book is Get Dressed by Seymour Chwast:
Time to get all dressed up! This book is different than other lets get dressed books in that its more whimsical and imaginative than practical for instance, how would you get dressed to
read about dragons?
Each clothing item/accessory is labeled and then you open the flap to find
exactly how to assemble your ensemble!
Other things this book gets dressed for are hiding (a good intro to camouflage), playing outside in the snow, building a sandcastle, singing, and more!
I like that this book is in a lift-the-flap format, it really encourages discussion about what the reasoning behind the clothing items on the flap could possibly be. What is he/she getting all dressed up for now? For younger tots, you can point out the various clothing items and see if they recognize what they are.
This is a really cute, fun book to read together with your kids. I would recommend it for little ones ages 2 and up.
You can find Get Dressed! at Amazon.com. It comes in sturdy hardcover and retails for $12.95.
