I Like Old Clothes
By

Rating
"I like old clothes, / Hand-me-down clothes, / Worn outgrown clothes, / Not-my-own clothes." . . . Originally published by Knopf in 1976 (with illustrations by Jacqueline Chwast), this poem--an exuberant celebration of hand-me-down clothes--is just as relevant and accessible today as it was over 30 years ago. Children's Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman offers a bouncy, fun-to-read-aloud text and a refreshingly agreeable, resourceful protagonist who likes old clothes for their "history" and "mystery." Illustrator Patrice Barton brings new, contemporary life to the poem, with an adorable little girl and her younger brother playing dress-up, making crafts, and happily treasuring their hand-me-downs.
