Illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi
Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2014. Picture Book.
After a young boy takes his nightly bath he expounds on the joy of being naked and declares he should do everything naked--like eat cookies, go to school, and play outside—though he does make an exception for wearing capes; capes should be worn whenever possible because they are awesome. But when he realizes it’s a little chilly, he decides maybe it’s time to put on pajamas because he can still wear his cape—and besides who wants to be naked when you can wear cool dinosaur pajamas?
Children will giggle with the boy’s antics and parents will relate to the nightly struggle getting kids into bed... dressed. Overall a fun book to share at bedtime.
