AARON'S SHIRT by Deborah Gould


Email this review


Aaron loves his new red-and-white shirt so much that he wants to wear it all the time--his mother has to be firm when it's time to wash it. It gets put away for winter, but still fits the next spring--though it isn't ""as big or as bright as he remembered."" But the next spring, it's definitely too small; still, Aaron loves it enough to save it from the giveaway box by putting it on the old stuffed bear he won long ago at the Spring Fair. A warm, comfortable story about growth, change, and loyalty, nicely illustrated with full-color, realistic pictures featuring a sturdy, cheerful child. The author and artist also collaborated on Grandpa's Slide Show (1987).
