Got this book so we could introduce the topic of underwear and hopefully get my little one a little more on board with toilet training. While we are no further along with the toilet training, this book still proved a good and funny read. I would rank it highly alongside with the Underpants Zoo which my oldest child LOVED.

Celery: Boxers or briefs? Now we can finally know.

You may be tempted not to take this book seriously, but there are some awesome concepts in this book! Learn new vegetables, opposites, days of the week...and how cool it is to wear UNDERWEAR! What more could you want in a picture book?

SUMMARY: This book introduces little ones to the wonderful concept of underwear. It shows how much fun underwear can be as well as some of the problems we might face with underwear (such as a pair being too small). But most important of all, This book teaches us that underwear is not for babies!

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations appear to be digitally rendered. They are simple for the younger viewers, full of fun, color and humor. My favorite illustrations were of the underwear that was too big for the radish and too small for the potato. The poor potato has some serious amount of bum sticking out!

THE GOOD: First, I must start by saying that the book confused me at first. I thought this was going to be a book about vegetables using underwear as the catalyst (the end papers have a visual of each vegetable labeled with its name; onion, broccoli, etc.) when this is actually a book about underwear using vegetables as a catalyst. Once I figured out the purpose of the book, I saw how completely adorable it is. And what better way is there to introduce little ones to the concept of wearing underwear than to use cute vegetables? The book discusses many different concepts of underwear from the names we call them by to the difference between boys' and girls' underpants. And the best part is "Babies don't wear underwear...Sorry, babies."
THE NOT AS GOOD: This is nit picky, but when writing a book for children as young as 2, I really don't like to see the use of contractions such as "There's big underwear..." and "There's underwear for Monday..." There was plenty of room for the "is."

Toilet training our kid was, by far, the worst part of parenting for me. Friends would tell me not to worry about it, that by the time our daughter went off to college she'd surely be potty trained. Their jokes did not humor me. I seriously pictured myself stashing a pack of Depends undergarments into my college-bound daughter's care package some day. Needless to say, my friends were right. In her own good time, our kid transitioned from diapers to underwear. I just needed to lighten up. Wow, do I wish I'd had this book to read with her back then. Vegetables In Underwear is fresh, fun, and seriously silly. I highly recommend it for toilet training toddlers, AND their nervous nellie parents.

Great book for toddlers! The types of underwear these vegetables wear are hysterical! It's also good for working with opposites for preschoolers.

Awesome! Just Awesome!
