"Black and Ridpath Ohi follow up on their I’m Bored (S & S, 2012) with another humorous picture book that taps into children’s emotions.... Parents sharing this story one-on-one with a child will find the picture book humorous on both a child and adult level." (School Library Journal)
"Black, a comedian as well as a writer, brings great comic timing to this riff. Ohi, who worked with Black on 'I’m Bored', makes sure readers get the joke." (New York Times Book Review)

This book is just plain fun. It is a celebration of the joys of being"ME", of pure, innocent freedom and giving a shout out to the birthday suit! (which adults seem to want to cover up all the time!!)
Unwrapping it in rhyme...
The bubble bath was so much fun,
Might escape to take a run.
Bye, bye mom - you can't catch me,
I'm naked and I'm feeling free!
Ha! Ha! mom - the towel?, no thanks
Gonna go and grab my cape.
I'll fly around and be real cool,
I might go naked to my school.
Cookies taste best when you're bare,
No shirt, no pants, no underwear.
Look at me, I'm my own man
Did dad or you turn on a fan?
I'm feeling chilly, oh dear me
I need my jammies I can see.
I'll jump in bed and snuggle in
Get toasty warm up to my chin.
Naked time was such a blast
But now I see the time has passed.
Good night bare toes, goodnight bare bum...
Goodnight, goodnight to everyone!
The story is so kid-perfect and the illustrations bring the words to life. Every time I read the book I laugh out loud at this little guy's free spirit flowing with happiness and adventure as he moves throughout his world NAKED. I would highly recommend this book for a great bedtime story. Warning: Read after the bath...when dressed in the pyjamas...and tucked safely into bed. Then there will be no fear of a copy-cat rendezvous au naturel. Yep, it's a winner.
I bought this because the cover looked cute. The inside just gets better and better... Matter of fact, I now have purchased 6 copies to gift to people.

Adorable zaniness and wicked cool comedy literally jump off the pages of Michael Ian Black's new children's book Naked!
Any parent can tell you that every child goes through that stage where clothes are a real hassle and buzz kill--it's much more fun to be Naked! The super nova boy who displays unflagging energy and heart goes about his day Naked! He shouts, "Look at me everybody! I'm naked! Whoooooo! Naked, naked, naked!"
Any child (and any adult who loves humor) can tell you the word "Naked!" is in itself, a funny word. Nude...not so funny. Bare....boring. Unclothed....uptight and uber proper. But Naked! deserves to be capitalized and always said and written with an exclamation point! It's freeing somehow! Look at me using the exclamation point! Whoooooooo!
The boy runs around his house, eating cookies and imagines going to school and playing on the playground all the while Naked! Life is great until....he imagines how much better it could be with a cape. Oh, yes. A cape. It makes all things better. Including Naked!
The boy discovers Naked! really works for him until he gets too cold. Clothes do have a use he has to concede.
Illustrations by Debbie Ridpath Ohi capture the energy and captivating spirit of the young boy. Readers can feel his energy and fun as he runs around his house. The boy's mother appears throughout the book trying to get him clothed as he outruns and outmaneuvers her, and it makes the story even more humorous and loveable.Read more ›
Worried parents need not fear, as the artist is careful to not reveal any important bits, even as she so thoroughly conveys the freedom and joy to be found in running about the house wearing nothing but your best superhero cape. And cookies! There are lots of cookies. What better fun than eating cookies....naked!
The text makes good use of the word naked, using lots of exclamation points and spot on comedic timing that turns this into a read aloud gem. I can't wait to read this to preschool story time crowds who will no doubt delight in all this nakedness even as their parents are cringing. Hey, the book ends with a valuable lesson when our little hero finally gets cold and learns that clothes can be kind of important. Naked is great fun and an enthusiastic recommend for any young reader. Don't miss this exuberant fun filled romp.
