PreS. This small, brightly illustrated book in the Just Being Me series, by the author of the classic It's Perfectly Normal (1994) and the Growing Up Stories series on child development, portrays a behavioral flashpoint from a child's first-person perspective. A note addressed to parents explains how each fictional scenario reflects an important developmental stage and discusses how parents might balance "enjoyment of their child's individuality . . . with the necessities of daily life." In the story, a boy of color strips off his winter wardrobe and reapplies it by himself, resulting in a topsy-turvy outfit that he proudly wears outside (with his flexible parents'permission). Although some adults may fear the willful, experimental acts depicted will be understood by children as carte blanche to act out, many others will appreciate the clear voice of reason ringing through the stories'humor and chaos--while children will simply exult in the silly fun modeled on the pages.

Robie H. Harris has written another lively romp that looks at the lives of parents and children everywhere with I'm All Dressed! I quickly identified with the exasperated parents attempting to leave the house when the child wants to get dressed "his way," which he considers the right and only way.
This is a humorous look at getting dressed through the eyes of a child. It's thought-provoking look at growing up for parents. Our little ones want and need independence. Getting dressed is one area where their choices probably won't be dangerous, only somewhat embarrassing to parents.
I enjoy Nicole Hollander's colorful illustrations. They are eye-catching in their simplicity. Children will immediately be drawn to them.
Armchair Interviews says: A little lesson for parents: children need to learn. Allowing them to dress themselves is a good thing, even if it's not what we consider the right way. It's important that the child is satisfied.
