What Do You Wear?

What Do You Wear? illus. by Taro Gomi. 20p. Chronicle. Mar. 2017. Board $6.99. ISBN 9781452150284.
Toddler-PreS—Gomi looks to the animal kingdom to address the subject of clothing and getting dressed. Sheep is shown wearing "a fluffy jacket," Gorilla sports "a cozy sweater," Snake shows off "a snug stocking," and Zebra rocks his "striped pajamas." The penultimate spread shows a surprised boy in his birthday suit, but with a page turn, the book ends with, "Quick, let's get dressed! That's better!" as he pulls on a shirt and pants. An upbeat choice with clever, appealing artwork.
