One Big Pair of Underwear

29 Sep


One Big Pair of Underwear written by Laura Gehl and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld (2014)

Two bears hate to share, but find only one pair of underwear…one gets the underwear and one cries, ‘That isn’t fair!’ Three young yaks find two salty snacks…two get snacks and one cries, ‘Where’s my snack?’ Four silver seals find three sets of wheels… three get the wheels and one gets a really bad deal. Β The pattern continues with more animals who hate to share, until finally twenty pigs find ten tall twisty slides. They all want to ride, so they share the slides by riding piggyback. Now all the other animals see how much fun sharing can be. Pretty soon everyone is sharing and laughing and playing together.

Laura Gehl and Tom Lichtenheld shared the making of this story beautifully! The rhyming text is paired with funny pictures to make a silly rhyming, counting, sharing picture book.

Counting and sharing, sharing and counting… This is a winner for everyone! No one gets left out and everyone has fun, who could ask for more?

    Every time I go into the Barnes kids’ section lately, this is right there, smack in the middle of all the picture books in the main “show off” area πŸ˜€ In fact, a friend of mine picked it off the shelf and I still haven’t had time to actually READ it! I love Tim Lichtenheld’s illustrating so I know I’ll enjoy this when I finally have time πŸ™‚ Thanks for the review, Juliana πŸ™‚

    Sounds like a great story about sharing. Love the cover. And, of course you can’t go wrong with Lichtenheld’s illustrations.
