One Big Pair of Underwear by Laura Gehl- ADVISABLE

Gehl, Laura One Big Pair of Underwear.  Illustrate by Tom Lichtenheld.  PICTURE BOOK.  Beach Lane Books, 2014. 17.99. Content : G. Two bears find a funny, big pair of underwear but do not want to share it with each other.  How will they solve this dilemma? Each page in this book not only explores counting, it also provides similar conflicts with sharing between fun animals participating in exciting activities. Goats, pigs, ducks and baboons alike find themselves in situations where one animal is left out of the fun.  How can they solve this problem? Who will set the example of finding solutions through the simple act of sharing? This book is a counting book that not only rhymes but teaches a lesson in sharing. We enjoyed not only the storyline, but the illustrations. Pre-K.  EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: SL.
