Cover: 'Naked!'

Staff Review: "Naked!" by Michael Ian Black


This wonderful, enjoyable read-aloud celebrates the joys of being naked—naked, naked, naked. The wide-mouthed boy in this picture book eats (several) cookies-naked, slides down the stairs-naked, and dreams of going to school, doing the hokey pokey, and playing on the playground-naked. Children will easily identify with this sometimes-caped crusader and his patient parents, and giggle every time the word “Naked!” is read aloud. Be prepared to read it aloud many times as giggling, smiling children enthusiastically shout, “read it again”.

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book, read-alouds
