Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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! *I got a copy of this book for a gift*
My daughter is five, and we have read this book every night for the past two weeks. After first picking it up at the library, this is something we are adding to our permanent collection. The book is written in cute, fun rhymes, and the acrylic paintings that make up the illustrations are awesome! It is the perfect story to teach the beginnings of history. My daughter now knows about Johnny Appleseed, Nat Love, and Abe Lincoln (among many others). I would definitely recommend this book for any child!
