Details: Product Description Denise Fleming's Maggie and Michael Get Dressed is a sweet concept book about a boy getting dressed in colorful clothing, with an adorable canine helper. It's time for Michael to get dressed! Maggie will help.Michael knows where each piece of colorful clothing should go. Yellow socks on feet, brown hat on head. But who will end up wearing the blue pants? From School Library Journal PreS-K—This beautifully illustrated story by Fleming, using her signature pulp painting technique, is an amusing tale about young Michael's creative attempt to get dressed for the day with the help of his dog Maggie. First, he finds yellow socks. But Maggie runs away with one. When it is returned, the socks end up on Maggie's front paws. Next, it is time to choose a shirt and pants, but those also end up on the pup. When Michael remembers he has forgotten the undies, they become a hat for Maggie! Mom asks if Michael is dressed, and he quickly changes into the clothes that Maggie has been wearing. When Michael returns after his day, his great friend is waiting. An amusing introduction to colors, this simple book has humor in both the text and the illustrations. This story about playing with a puppy while procrastinating about getting dressed is one with which many young children can identify. VERDICT This tale about getting dressed with a hidden lesson about color identification is a delightful sleight of hand.—Mary Hazelton, formerly at Warren & Waldoboro Elementary Schools, ME Review "An amusing introduction to colors, this simple book has humor in both the text and the illustrations. This story about playing with a puppy while procrastinating about getting dressed is one with which many young children can identify. . . a delightful sleight of hand." ―School Library Journal, on Maggie and Michael Get Dressed"The limited language and patterned repetition ("Look, Maggie―socks. Yellow socks") make this text accessible to beginning readers as well as enjoyable as participatory read-aloud. Visual humor abounds. . . . The joyful celebration of common activity radiates from every page." ―Kirkus Reviews, on Maggie and Michael Get Dressed"In her signature pulp-painting style, Fleming presents a concept book on colors and dress-up skills tightly woven into a fun-loving tale about a relationship between a boy and his increasingly silly pup. Fleming captures audience attention with page after page of hilarious scenes aptly combined with large text and color coordinated words. A terrific pick for storytime." ―Booklist, on Maggie and Michael Get Dressed"a superb selection for large-group sharing. Fleming’s textured pulp-painting technique is employed to fine effect here, and grinning, light-brown-skinned Michael and perky-eared, black and white Maggie are an attractive and lively duo." ―The Bulletin, on Maggie and Michael Get Dressed About the Author Denise Fleming won a Caldecott Honor for In the Small, Small Pond.
