This preachy little book demands your child conform to fascist norms about the "right" way to wear one's clothes. It encourages such outdated mores as putting on pants before going out and not wearing shoes on one's ears. All parents who want their children to grow up to be narcs should immediately buy this book.

I kid. It's yet another goddamn children's book where you might as well find something to like, since you'll be reading it three times a day for the next month. Personally, I like that t

I was thrown off when the bear learned how to put on his clothes correctly and then on the next page he didn't have it on but in the end it all made sense. Repetition helps the children learn.

Good to read to a lot younger children. The book was in a reception class which I thought was a little inappropriate. But a good book to read

This is a really cute book for toddlers. A bear gets dressed but puts his clothes on the wrong body parts. Finally, he gets it right.
Lindsay
Simple but funny text and illustrations with an interactive tone make this very toddler-friendly.
