The Wonderful World of Clothes

The Wonderful World of Clothes

Emma Damon
Otter-Barry Books Ltd
ISBN: 9781910959176

The Wonderful World of Clothes is a gorgeous book with detailed illustrations about clothes, why we wear them and how they might change depending on where we live or what activities we are doing; the Contents provides a clear and useful outline of what is in the book.

Any child with an interest in dressing up will pour over this, and it can be used across a number of topics from the jobs we do (and what we need to wear to do them) to religion (how what you wear can show your religion) and the environment (recycling clothes).

The images are detailed and colourful, with short paragraphs of text that can be easily shared, or read by confident younger readers. There is also information on where fabrics come from, and a useful glossary at the back explaining words like cocoon and synthetic.

In short, an entertaining and useful look at a subject that children aged 5-8 will enjoy.
