for What Do You Wear?
by Taro Gomi
A small square board book offers simple text on white page faced with an accompanying illustration in vibrant colors. Answering the titular question on each turn of the page, Gomi offers expected and unexpected ideas that inspire imagination while introducing new vocabulary. “Sheep wears a fluffy jacket. / Goldfish wears a tie-dyed skirt. / Duck wears a fancy cardigan.” The surprise conclusion features a boy at story’s end in this work originally published in Japan in 1980 and translated into English for this edition. (Ages 1-3)
