From a New York Times bestselling author and Caldecott-honor winning artist comes an exuberant illustrated story about playing dress up, having fun, and feeling free.

The boy loves to be naked. He romps around his house naked and wild and free. Until he romps into his parents' closet and is inspired to get dressed. First he tries on his dad's clothes, but they don't fit well. Then he tries on his mom's clothes, and wow! The boy looks great. He looks through his mom's jewelry and makeup and tries that on, too. When he's discovered by his mother and father, the whole family (including the dog!) get in on the fun, and they all get dressed together.

This charming and humorous story was inspired by bestselling and award-winning author Peter Brown's own childhood, and highlights nontraditional gender roles and self-expression.

 


MY REVIEW
Fred Gets Dressed is a fun, silly children's book about a little boy named Fred. Fred doesn't like to wear clothes. He roams around his house, naked as a jaybird, until the day he wanders into his parents' bedroom and discovers the clothes in their closet. Fred then decides that getting dressed may actually be... well, fun. 
I thought this was a cute book. It's a quick, easy read, and kids will enjoy the colorful illustrations and simplicity of it all. It's also a book that showcases the whole family coming together to do something silly, like dress up and wear makeup, regardless of gender. Just good, harmless fun. 
Parents and young readers will want more of Fred. 
5 stars!
