After a gust of wind blows a little boy's clothes off the line, he finds his garments being donned by an odd assortment of animals: a fox gets his socks; a llama struts his pajamas; a goat wears his coat; and so on in a rollicking rhyme that's fun to say and act out.

"On a sunny washing day, / my clothes flip-flapped and blew away," opens Offen's ( Nice Work, Little Wolf ) brief, chipper rhyme cum pantomime. Underneath a jovial, double-page illustration showing boldly-colored items of clothing sailing through the sky, a diaper-clad toddler is pictured with his arms outstretched, following instructions to "Flap arms." As each article lands on a different animal ("A cat got my hat"; "A goat got my coat"; "Two baby llamas were in my pajamas"), the cherubic youngster is seen mimicking the actions of the amusingly clad creatures. Preschoolers will willingly do likewise, as they simultaneously listen to the lighthearted verse and simple directions, such as "Pretend to hold up pants" and "Pretend to wrap scarf around your neck." A satisfying, double-edged romp to spark a child's imagination. Ages 3-7.

PreSchool-- Offen's rhymed action book provides interactive fun for toddlers as they learn to dress, recognize animals, and distinguish sizes. The text begins, "On a sunny washing day,/ my clothes flip-flapped and blew away." As the child discovers his clothing being worn by various animals, appropriate gestures are demonstrated in the story. He buttons his coat (worn by a goat), wraps a scarf around his neck like the giraffe, and dances off the last page, concluding he's ". . . happy enough/ without all that stuff!" Pictures are warm, bold, and bright, and the format is large and inviting. A welcome English import. --Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
