Underwear … Underpants … Undies … Panties … Drawers … Bloomers … Tightie Whities … Skivvies … BVDs … Knickers … and (cough) lots of others I’m not going to include in a children’s book review
There are countless ways to name them but only one way to use them. Right?
Well, not exactly … says New York Times Bestselling Author Todd Parr. With more than thirty children’s books to his name including the NY Times Bestseller The I Love You Book, Parr reached out to the mom blog community to help promote his work. And my friend, Mel, and I were the first in line.
The book is about underwear, for Pete’s sake. What’s not to like?
The Underwear Book will have your little people rolling on the floor not only because of Parr’s clever ideas and whimsical illustrations but also because the book centers on (you guessed it!) underwear. An inherently funny subject for kids and, let’s be honest, grown-ups, too. Underwear users, am I right? The book is set up ‘Do & Don’t’ style. To give you an example, here’s one of my favorite pages. (Yes, it IS because it’s about hippos. Thanks for asking.)
Separated at birth? What do you think?
- Create your own DO & DON’T and put it in the comments of either of our blogs. PG-rating, please. It is a children’s book. (Oh, and here’s Mel’s post … in case you like her better.)
- The winners will be chosen by us, as we have been wearing underwear for years and feel qualified to make this decision.
- The deadline to enter is October 6th at noon. Winners will be announced by midnight that same day.
