She discusses, amongst other things: What makes a hat, the functions of hats, and hat connections. See below for a little explanation.
--What makes a hat - they can be made out of fabric, leaves, flowers, shells, feathers and skins. Be small, huge, etc.
--Functions of hats - they can keep you cool or keep you warm or be relative useless
--"Hat Connections" - how hats can indicate your team, work, place of origins, status and beliefs
From a social studies point of view it's an excellent exercise in diversity. From a more puzzle-solving thinking-child point of view it is interesting to speculate and discuss the how and why of hats. For example, the railroad conductors hat in China is "designed to make the conductor seem a few inches taller, so she will be visible on a crowded train platform."
Four Stars. [B-] An interesting book about hats that covers the world and provides insight in the reasons behind the diversity of styles that are present.
