9780064431576: A Three Hat Day (Reading Rainbow Book)

R. R. Pottle the Third has a truly wonderful, extra-extraordinary collection of hats. But happiness eludes him. He is lonely and dreams of meeting a perfect wife ' who will, of course, be wearing a perfect hat.

One day, a day so bad that R. R. Pottle wears not one, not two, but three hats at once, his dream comes true in the best possible way.

This warm, comical story by talented new author Laura Geringer is crowned with full-color illustrations by Caldecott Medal winner Arnold Lobel.

About the Author:

Laura Geringer's collection of children's books goes from floor to ceiling, wall to wall. A graduate of Barnard College and Yale University, Ms. Geringer has worked as a newspaper reporter, an art teacher, and a book reviewer. She is now an editor at a major New York publishing house and lives with her husband, a clinical psychologist.



Arnold Lobel (1933-1987) was the award-winning author and illustrator of many beloved children's books, including the classic I Can Read books about Frog and Toad, and the Caldecott Medal winning Fables.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3 A fun-filled story of the slightly eccentric Pottle clan, and particularly of R. R. Pottle the Third, who loved hats. He consoles a rather lonely heart by wearing three hats at once. On a visit to a hat store he finds the perfect wife, wearing, of course, the perfect hat. There is also a nice twist at the end, concerning R. R. Pottle the Fourth's obsession. Lobel's depiction of the Pottles is imaginative and clever. The softly colored watercolors show Pottle using a fishing pole to choose his day's hat from his bed and reveal the Pottle mansion to be a melange of canes and umbrellas (his parents' loves). Even better, though, is the richness and rhythm of the language: "WHAT HATS! There were fezzes and face veils, tiaras and tam-o'-shanters." Young readers may have to sound out some words but will soon enjoy rolling them off their tongue. A nice way to introduce youngsters to the riches to be found in the English language.
