ISBN: 9780316200646
Availability: NOT IN STOCK - Usually arrives in 7 - 14 business days
Published: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers - May 4th, 2021

I admire picture books that challenge societal conventions and celebrate a child's individual expression. In Peter Brown's new title, we meet Fred who finds it more fun to dress up in his parents' clothes than his own. He especially likes trying to look like his mom. With vibrant neon illustrations and an engaging narrative, FRED GETS DRESSED captures the most important thing a parent can do: participate in what makes their child happy.
