Ehn. We were expecting something better with this book. We were all slightly disappointed, but we still admire Willems and his genius. We did like the message. That was the best part. ( )

I can't remember how this found its way onto my to-read list... It is very funny though and I'm glad I finally got around to reading it. ( )

The idea of the naked mole rat getting dressed is so cute and fun! Love the book. ( )

I loved this book for so many different reasons. One reason that I enjoyed the book was because of the illustrations. Not only did the illustrations fit and enhance the written text, but it was also incredibly amusing for the readers. I thought that it was entertaining to watch the different emotions come over the different naked mole rats. Additionally, without the illustrations, the reader might have a different image in their head about what a naked mole rat may look like. Another reason that I enjoyed this book so much was because of the written text. I found the written text to be really funny and engaging. The text was so comical that it pushed readers to want to find out what happens on the next page. I also really liked how the text talked to the reader when it said, "Three things you need to know..." I thought that was an interesting approach and I really enjoyed it. In my opinion, the overall message of the book would be that it is okay to be unique. ( )

Thanks to Mo Willems (with a little help from the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA, where Willems is a featured illustrator/author right now), my son is spending much of his time pretending to be a naked mole rat. Luckily he's not even four yet, so this is cute rather than disturbing. ( )
