Our Latest Obsession: Wearable Books

Every now and then I’ll have one of those moments when I think, “Why didn’t I think of that?”  That’s exactly what I said when I came across a series of wearable books written by by Donald Lemke and Bob Lentz.

What a simple idea:  a book of beards.  And one of masks.  And one of hats. And one of teeth.  How fun!  I think they’re definitely worth checking out if you haven’t done so already.  Especially if you have younger children ages 5 and younger.  Although older children may enjoy these books too.


Note: This is not my daughter in the picture.

These fun, interactive board books are great for children and adults alike.  They allow for make-believe games and hilarous snapshot memories!  So far we’ve only read the Book-O-Beards book in this series.  Next, we’re going to check out the Book-O-Hats.  I think the kids might be a bit too young for the Book-O-Masks and the Book-O-Teeth.  I’m not sure if they’d be a bit scared so I’m just going to steer clear of those two until they’re a bit older.  We’ve definitely had our fair share of laughs with the Book-O-Beards book though.

Book-O-Beards allows children (and adults) to become a lumberjack, a pirate, a cowboy, a sailor, a police officer, or Santa.  It also helps kids role-play different  personas as they try on some full-spread, fully bushy beards.  Plus, there are catchy rhymes, colorful illustrations, and interactive dialogue.  You can’t go wrong with these cute read-alouds to spice up your story time.

Your turn:  Have you ever read any of the wearable books in this series?  What are some other fun, interactive books you’ve read with your kids?
