What Do You Wear? by Taro Gomi- NO

Gomi, Taro. What Do You Wear?, BOARD BOOK. Chronicle Books, 2017. $6.99. The “clothes” worn by numerous animals are highlighted in this short board book. The goldfish wears a tie-dye skirt. The penguin wears a suit. The sheep wears a fluffy jacket. The book ends with a boy who needs some clothes, so he quickly gets dressed. I was super into this book with the really cute illustrations and the awesome, colorful vocabulary to describe the animal clothing. But when the little boy needs some clothes, he’s pictured totally naked. Including a small bump for his genitalia. It’s not detailed in any way, but it could cause a kerfuffle. PRE-K - NOT RECOMMENDED. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
