Anything can be a hat! Perfect for a story time where you make silly hats at the end. ( )

"Do you know what a hat is?
I bet you think you know what a hat is..."

Hats you can buy at the haberdashery are "just the tip of the iceberg": all kinds of unexpected things make very good hats! From acorn caps to bubbles, flowers, and empty bowls, more things can be hats than you might expect. A simple concept expands into the poetic with some imagination ("if you're in an airplane, you get to wear a cloud"), and Blanca Gómez's paper collage and digital style fits this story like, well, a perfect hat.

"You see? Hats are everywhere you look!
Anything can be a hat if you believe it is."

With a creative mindset and a just-right amount of humor, this is a great storytime book with obvious craft tie-ins (paper hats/crowns, anyone?). ( )
