Hat On, Hat Off (Toddler Skill Builders, 1)
Baby is getting dressed to go out. But as often as his big sister adds a new piece of clothing, he tosses his hat aside.
It’s time for this little one to go out. But which hat will he choose? Red hat, blue hat, striped hat, penguin hat, teddy bear hat? Once that decision is made, that hat just doesn’t stay on, while shoes are tied and jacket is buttoned. One more visit to the potty. And once this child is in the stroller at last, will that hat be on his head?
Toddlers will delight in choosing their own hats after they see this charming story. A simple, rhythmic text that reflects the everyday challenge of getting a toddler ready to go out. Written by Theo Heras and Illustrated with gentle humor by Renné Benoit.

What I Liked: This simple story of a young child getting ready to go outside and play on a cooler day is a very relatable everyday activity. The hat keeps being taken off and the child is helped to put it back on. As a parent, this happened many times. The soft colors keep the event light-hearted and sweet and reminiscent of the small tasks that our sweet little ones one day won’t need help with. In the story, an older sibling is helping out making this a very gentle story that a young toddler can relate to. The sturdy cover and thicker pages are perfect for a newly independent child to hold and turn the pages.
