Aliens Love Underpants
Written by Claire Freedman & illustrated by Ben Cort
picture book
Recommend Ages: 5-6

It’s a totally zany story with some of the silliest illustrations to appear in many seasons—which is to say that Aliens Love Underpants will be a surefire hit among toddlers and beginning readers. When little aliens fly down to Earth, they don’t come to visit because they want to meet the Earthlings. They simply want to steal everybody’s underpants! They like them large or small, they like them red or green—and they like them in all other sizes and colors, too. They think that Mom’s pink, frilly panties are a perfect place to hide. And Grandpa’s woolly long johns make a super-whizzy slide! The text is in verse, the illustrations are big and bright, and kids who open this book will giggle from first page to last.

Underwear!
Written & illustrated by Jenn Harney

Recommend Ages: 2-5

Bare bear! Stop right there! Underwear! Under where? So begins the dialogue between a tired bear dad and a rambunctious bear cub who would rather play with his tighty whities than get into bed. Underwear makes great hair. It can even turn one into a superber, or a goggle-wearing swimming bear. But beware of a big scare! Rhymes, homonyms, and conjunctions abound in this book that could be used to teach reading, but its primary purpose is to make bedtime fun.

Written & illustrated by Jared Chapman

Santa?! With the same snappy humor that made Vegetables in Underwear a hit with the preschool set, Jared Chapman’s latest makes the perfect stocking stuffer.
