What We Wear: Dressing Up Around the World

What We Wear: Dressing Up Around the World
Ajmera, Maya; Kinkade, Sheila; Pon, Cynthia

What we wear can identify who we are: what team we play for or what team we root for, where we go to school, how we worship, or how we represent our heritage. What we wear expresses our individuality, and clothes can make us happy, confident, and proud. Whether it's a piper in a tartan plaid, a cowpoke in a cowboy hat, or a novice in ceremonial face paint, children everywhere wear different clothes and accessories for different reasons. But, one thing they all have in common is that they are all unique and beautiful. In a celebration of clothing in bright, beautiful photographs of exuberant children from around the world, What We Wear: Dressing Up Around the World inspires young readers to explore the way clothing makes them feel and how it tells the world who they are. Backmatter encourages young readers to explore the way people dress in other countries and other cultures at folk festivals, at museums, and at home by asking about their own family heritage. This book is good for your brain because: Multicultural studies, preserving heritage, world history, power of storytelling
