My son likes to collect hats. His favorites are a camouflage, mossy leaf hunting hat, his bling hat and his grandpa’s old rabbit fur Arctic expedition hat. He wears them everywhere he goes at all times of the year. It is a battle to take them away during the hot days of summer. So, what happens when your son decides to bring every new item he receives everywhere he goes until they continue to pile up? Find out in in this rhyming escapade where a boy is given a red hat by his mother to keep off the snows. With a Seussian style and vibrant pictures, the adventure continues with the purchase of a mouse, shoes, boots and even an elephant, until one day…I thought this was a fun look at a child's enthusiasm for all those little things we seem to forget as we grow up.
