Picture Books We Love

Top of the Shelf: Button Up!

button up Button Up! Wrinkled Rhymes by Alice Schertle, Pictures by Petra Mathers The stars of this collection of illustrated poems are the clothes children wear - from shoes and jammies to swimsuits and Halloween costumes.  Schertle's perky rhymes, told from the point of view of each item, pair nicely with Mather's amusing images. Talking clothes - clever indeed! Click here to buy Button Up!, one of Susan's Blooms picks for Best Picture Books of 2009. Love the art of Petra Mathers?  Find books and posters from her exhibition here at The Carle on our website.

what a great idea for a book. Clothes are such a huge part of my preschoolers day - what's on her shirt as she gets dressed for school, changing into sparkly clothes for dancing, socks on her hands to turn them into kitten paws. I'm looking forward to reading what all these clothes have to say!
