What's a toddler to do with a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear? Try on everything, of course! Playful rhyming text and textile-driven art leap off the page in this board book edition, tailor-made for little hands.

Preschoolers will love to see and say all the games and toys the little girl tries, and adults will appreciate the celebration of imagination that is the best solution of all.
