Baby Librarian Tilly and her mummy Jen review the sheepish What Do You Wear? by Taro Gomi.
Baby Librarian Tilly reviews What Do You Wear?
This is a fun book. I like it because it’s another question book which means it’s a mystery, and there are lots of animals in it. The animals in this book all wear different kinds of clothes — but not really. It’s really the animals with their fur or scales or feathers but they look like they’re wearing clothes. Like a duck looks like it’s wearing a fancy cardigan and a sheep looks like it’s wearing a fluffy coat. And then there’s a little boy at the end not wearing anything at all. Good on him, I say. He shouldn’t have to get dressed if he doesn’t want to. Overall a good book because I like the animals but the mystery isn’t much of a mystery so that is a little disappointing.

Cute little book that I imagine will be helpful in convincing a toddler that they ought to get dressed. It’s a short and simple book with fun drawings, and I like this way of imagining animals in their clothes. It’s great as a board book for a baby because it’s just the right length for their attention spans (short), and animals are pretty much always a winner around here. My favourite animals are the sheep in its fluffy coat and the penguin in its classic suit.
