Big Girl Panties by Fran Manushkin illustrated by Valeria Petrone
Underwear is often played for laughs in children's books, so it's great to see a book where underwear is shown as a triumphant achievement. This is a fun book; the big, bright illustrations and sense of humour can easily appeal to children. It's a great book to read with kids who have just moved out of diapers (or who need a bit of encouragement). A great book for libraries, public or at home, as well as a gift for young kids.
Check out Fran Manushkin's website and Valeria Petrone's website.
I received a review copy from Edelweiss courtesy of Random House.
