As a child I was constantly playing pretend. One of my favorite ways to play was to dress up in old clothing that had once belonged to my mother and her sister, or my grandparents. I Like Old Clothes written by Mary Ann Hoberman and illustrated by Patrice Barton reminded me of all the fun I had playing dress up as a child. A young girl explains that old clothes aren’t something to throw away, but instead can tell stories, become toys, and just be fun and lovely. Barton’s watercolor illustrations give the book a soft, warm look that captures the feel and memory of dress up clothes perfectly. These, along with Hoberman’s rhyming and repetitive text, are a perfect mix. This book will be good to share with any child who loves to play pretend and has a wonderful imagination.
