The story: A little boy decides that he will no longer be wearing clothes to school. His parents attempt to change his mind with the thought of various sticky, smelly, yucky disasters that could befall him if he goes to school sans clothes. Can they convince him to wear clothes to school the next day?
Mama opines: We read this book at We Give Books, which is a fantastic program that donates a book to a literacy cause for every book you read on the computer with your little one. You Can't Go to School Naked will surely induce giggles from your child as our protagonist and his parents imagine all of the funny and uncomfortable things that could happen if he goes to school naked. The rhyming scheme reminds me a bit of Dr. Seuss and the illustrations are charming.
Thoughts from David: I like it because well, it’s silly. It’s funny to go to school without underwear!
Favorite part: I don't have a favorite part. I like it all!
Stay cool today and happy reading!
