Underwear! (Mary Elise Monsell)

This one is truly silly fun. Don’t buy it if you are looking for something profound. Don’t buy it if you want something educational. Do buy it if you want you kids to have a good silly laugh! Or simply check it out of the library of course.

We were kindly given the hardcover version of this book as a hand-me-down this summer, and it has been a huge hit.

Zachary Zebra and Orfo the Orangutan love underwear. They wear underwear of all different colors, prints and styles…sometimes all at once. Gloomy Bismark the Buffalo doesn’t like underwear,and not many other animals like him (even the flies stay away). Zachary helps Bismark laugh for the first time by daring him to say the word underwear ten times without laughing. You can guess the rest I am sure.

What child under the age of seven can resist laughing at jokes about bodily functions or underwear? Well, thankfully there is no bodily function humor here, but the underwear joke is a big hit with my two oldest kids. The illustrations are marvelous too!

I guarantee that the six and under set will find this one hilarious. The paperback is eligible for the 4-for-3 promotion at Amazon.

    I love my underwear.
    I wear it under there.
    Even though there’s one of them,
    They call each one a pair.

    They come in many colors.
    We buy them in our town.
    The only color I don’t want
    Are undies colored brown.

    I would definitely recommend this book, its so silly and a fun read for kids. This was actually one of my favorite books as a child, I’m now 24 and my mother still has my copy in a collection of my family’s favorite childhood books. And the illustrations really are great!
