When it comes to getting toddlers dressed, the struggle is real. Enter: Taro Gomi! The bestselling author/illustrator offers a creative and colorful look at animals, reimagining their fur, feathers, and fins as…clothes! A sheep wears a fluffy jacket, a zebra sports striped PJs, a snake is snug in a stocking, and a penguin looks dapper in a classic suit. Young children will be amused by the spirited take on animals, and they’ll very likely be convinced that getting dressed is best!
I really like Taro Gomi, and this book shows the clothes that animals wear (a gorilla wears a fuzzy sweater, a snake wears a stocking, etc). At the end of the book, it shows a little boy without any clothes on and he hurries to get dressed, too. It doesn’t show a large amount of detail, but something to note for other parents.
Taro Gomi is an internationally renowned author and illustrator who has created more than 400 books for readers of all ages, including the award-winning Over the Ocean and bestsellers Bus Stops, I Know Numbers!, My Friends, and Spring Is Here. He lives in Tokyo, Japan.
