Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Spinelli provides some great entertainment in this rhyming story that showcases the famous headgear of individuals such as Igor Stravinsky, Carmen Miranda, Abraham Lincoln, Nat Love, and Johnny Appleseed. For example, "Francisco de Goya had a hat,/a hat with candles on the brim–/a clever hat that suited him–/that made a chandelier of light/for painting far into the night." From its opening lines ("Do YOU have a hat?/Something fuzzy, warm, and red,/to keep the snowflakes off your head?") to its closing ones naming different toppers ("A magic hat? A cap? A crown?/A country hat? A hat for town?"), children will be enchanted and engaged. They will certainly join in on the title refrain on each page. Valério's illustrations are done in acrylics primarily with bright shades of orange, blue, green, and red. His stylized figures are humorous, with exaggerated facial features. The endpapers offer brief tidbits about the people who are represented here. Overall, this original and amusing book is a great marriage of text and artwork. It will make a terrific storytime addition, either by itself or combined with other clothing-related selections such as Jonathan London's Froggy Gets Dressed (Viking, 1992) or Joan Nodset's classic Who Took the Farmer's Hat? (HarperCollins, 1963).–Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA

From Booklist

K-Gr. 3. What initially appears to be a charming, if unexceptional, picture book about hats turns out to be a fun introduction to historical figures. The opening pages show children in seasonally appropriate headgear playing in snow and on a beach. Then a conversational text introduces a variety of well-known hat wearers, including Abraham Lincoln, who wore a stovepipe hat; Carmen Miranda, who wore a topper of fruit; and John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed), who was said to wear a cooking pot. More obscure people are also included--among them, magician Louis Comte, out of whose hat a rabbit appears. Whimsical caricatures in bright colors, with hats prominently featured, energize the litany of characters, and the endpapers provide brief details on the individuals mentioned and put them into context. A book that will encourage kids to think about hats' various uses and spark interest in researching those who wore them. Diane Foote

At first I wasn't sure if my two year old would go for this book but he LOVES it! It's a little long, so I would recommend it for young toddlers, like my son, who really like to be read to and who have a long attention span. With older kids, about four and older, it should be fine. Each time I read this book to my son, I have to read it at least twice. I'm not sure if it's the very well written poetry or the pictures that captivate him the most. He has recently decided that he likes to wear hats and likes his mommy and daddy to wear hats, so maybe that's it. Anyway, this is a fun book that parents won't mind reading again and again and toddlers who love books, and hats, will simply adore.

I love hats. There. I said it. Happy? I collect hats of all types. So, learning about famous people and their hats, to me, is just plain awesomeness. Mrs. Spinelli has written a fun factual story that makes you want to smile. I loved reading about the famous people and what hats they wore. The illustrations are warm and are full of things in the fore- and background that catches your eye. Plus, this is a good time of year to talk about hats. For those in the Northern Hemisphere – hats that keep you warm. For those in the Southern Hemisphere – hats that keep the sun off! This is a perfect book for young kids (and old kids)! Mrs. Spinelli is a master of picture books!

This is an entertaining book that incorporates historical figures that wore hats into the story. Very colorful illustrations make the story even more enjoyable! My children enjoyed it very much.

My 2-year old son absolutely loves this book. The poetry and pictures are so engaging that I don't even have to read this book to him anymore--I just turn the pages while he recites the entire book to me instead. The rhymes are so clever!

Each page also taught me something new. A few of the people mentioned in this book I had not previously heard of, such as Nat Love and Louis Comte, so I took this book one step further and showed my son each person on the Internet to pique his interest (and mine) even more.

I definitely recommend this book to everyone with small kids!

So I had a 4 year old not very fond of wearing hats but this book got us all revved up. It talks about famous folks and types of hats they wore and then each page ends with 'do you have a hat' and that my friend was the magic question that got my son to wear a hat, so he could say: yes. I loved the colorful illustrations and will try and find more books by this illustrator and author.

I cannot write a good summation as my wife is the one who uses this book in her classroom, but if she bought it, it must be great!
