One of my very favorite books for babies is Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton. It's short, simple, colorful, and lends itself to many teachable concepts such as clothing, colors, and body parts. Plus, it's fun to shriek "Oops!" every page.
The other morning Little Lady was looking at this book on the rug while still in her pajamas and an idea struck me. She thinks it's devilishly hilarious when I wear her pants on my head during diaper changes so I thought perhaps she would like to reenact the turkey's clothing mistakes while getting dressed.
Before long, we were reading the book like this:
It took quite a while to get my little turkey dressed as we read the book, put the clothes on the wrong body parts, had a big tickle-fest, and shrieked, "Oops!" several times. I didn't get the big belly giggles I thought I would but maybe that's because putting clothes on the wrong body parts is funnier when it's someone else's body. I think next time we'll enlist Mini Me's help for our reenactment. He loves the "Oops!" part, too!
