Get Dressed! teaches children the names of different types of clothing and accessories and what to wear in certain situations (i.e. when it is cold or when playing make-believe). Through its whimsical illustrations of children dressed in sometimes out-of-the-ordinary ways, it also encourages children to have their own styles and to be creative in their clothing choices. This book would work well for teaching children ages two-five about different pieces of clothing and what to wear throughout the day while doing certain activities. Each set of pages in the book has a repetition of the phrase, “get dressed to…” and a fold-out page that includes drawings of different pieces of clothing and accessories that one could wear for each listed activity. Underneath each fold-out page is a colored drawing of a child wearing the specific clothing and accessories that are pictured. The front cover of the book is designed like a suit with the two sides of the suit magnetized together. Although children are sure to love the book’s interactive elements (the magnetized suit and fold-out pages), libraries may want to err on the side of caution when stocking this book because of the potential of these pieces getting damaged, swallowed, or wedged in unconventional sites.

Get dress, is a very instructive books because it teaches living skill or children. Getting dress is a daily activity that everyone needs to learn and sometimes for children it get difficult or they don’t know how to get dress for special occasion or season. This book teach different ways to get dress not just following a modern style but at the same time teaching children what you need to wear for the different climate offered for the our seasons.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141970107X, Hardcover)

Seymour Chwast celebrates the daily routine of getting dressed in this fittingly whimsical and satisfyingly unique novelty book. Unlike more traditional books on this topic that deal with the how of getting dressed, Get Dressed! instead tackles the why. The text “Get dressed to read about dragons” accompanies an illustration of a boy dressed in a makeshift knight costume. A girl in full floral garb stands in a garden alongside the text “Get dressed to hide.” The book features half and full gatefolds, which foreshadow the items of clothing to be seen and provide surprise reveals on each spread. With a die-cut magnetic closure, even the cover invites readers to peek inside!

Praise for Get Dressed!
“Chwast’s wacky combinations are sure to encourage young fashionistas to be comfortable with their own personal style. Even the cover, designed as a suit jacket that fastens with a magnetic snap, invites readers to open a world of possibilities. A clever, dapper package.”
Kirkus Reviews

"Young children will delight in pointing out which objects don’t necessarily belong with the others."
The New York Times Book Review
