STORYTIME: Getting Dressed

Ella Sarah Gets Dressed by Margaret Chodos-Irvine - Ella Sarah does not dress to tthe tune of her family. Being different is good!

Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing by Judy Barrett - A whimsical story that can get big laughs from both toddlers and elementary age kids. Judy goes through all kinds of animals and shows and explains why it may not be a very good idea for them to be wearing clothes. This book is a real treat to share with kids and parents alike.

Animal Pants! by Brian Moses- Not super impressed with this book but it is an okay fill in for a clothing themed storytime. In this book animals wear all different kinds of underpants, silly in a silly sort of way.

Dini Dinosaur by Karen Beaumont- Beaumont's books are some of my favorites to read at storytime. Her rhymes are always so funny and well written. In this story a dinosaur takes a bath fully clothed and as the story progresses the reader has to stop on each page to have him take one article of clothing off.
