Olivia Lauren’s Things We Wear is a story about a child model and her friends exploring the different things people wear. Olivia Lauren and her friends tell us about the when, where, and why regarding the things we wear. Children will increase their vocabulary and curiosity about fashion, tradition, and the significance of clothing.
This book teaches us that clothing can be used to express ourselves in a variety of ways. How do you encourage your children to express themselves?
Some days my children love just throwing whatever they want on and going on about their business. Other days they both love being fashionistas/nisto’s and showing the world their style!
The back of the book features a glossary of terms for various clothing items used in other cultures and religions. After reading over the terms, I was interested in finding out more, and just like the kids; I spent some time after reading the book to find out more detail.
This is a great book for educators looking to introduce a “What We Wear” lesson to their classes. For teachers of older students, you can use this book as a companion piece to a wide variety of lessons on culture, religion and other world topics.
