“Click, Clack, Moo” by Doreen Cronin: Straw Hat Roundup
I’m going to make a bold statement here: this is my favorite board book.
I could be wrong. I might see another on our bookshelf later today and realize I forgot someone important. But for now, this is the one I’m always recommending to people, and the one I can easily bare to read again and again.
The art in Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is such a delight–artistic, but still childish, so it appeals to all ages. And this is a little ridiculous, but I think the courier-new type font used for the typewriter is also super appealing to me…yeah, I may have a problem.
Another self-admitted fixation for me (especially as the weather keeps getting warmer) is straw hats–and there are so many styles to choose from! I tend to steer (pun intended) towards some of the more classic styles, like bucket and boat hats, but I’m totally digging some of these trendier ones lately.
Hats are the key to so many of the kid and toddler outfits we put together–seems like every time we’ve got an attention-getting ensemble, there’s a hat capping it off (killing it with the puns today, no?) And kids hats are ridiculously affordable! I’m always shocked how reasonable they are for the impact they make. I need to start taking my own advice and amping up the quality of my own outfits…but I feel like hat-wearing is such a bold commitment for me! 🙂
Below I’ve included a few of my current favorite straw hats, loosely inspired by Click, Clack, Moo’s hat-and-overall-wearing farmer. Take a look, and let me know if any of them work out for you!
