Green Pants – Book Review

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

This holiday is great for a lot of reasons, but most of all it’s just a fun holiday. No pressure to make a big meal for family, no pressure to buy gifts or go all out on decorations, just a day to celebrate Irish things and wear green.

So to celebrate this green day, I bring you a review of Green Pants by Kenneth Kraegel.

Put on your green pants and have a green day!

Green Pants (2017, Candlewick Press, Picture Book)

Jameson loves his green pants. He can do anything when he wears his green pants! But if he wants to be in his cousin’s wedding, he’ll have to wear black pants. Jameson can’t imagine wearing anything but his green pants. He wants to be in the wedding but he wants to wear his green pants do. What’s he to do?

Green Pants, written and illustrated by Kenneth Kraegel, is a fun new picture book about making choices, family, and the power of green pants. Young readers will enjoy spunky Jameson in his green pants, and will feel his pain when he must choose between being in a wedding and wearing his green pants. Parents will enjoy reading this cute story aloud with their children, and they will likely relate to the frustrations Jameson’s parents must face by having a child that only wants to wear one thing. Highly recommended for children ages 5 to 8 whether they are just learning to read or strong readers.
