Still Stuck

Publisher: Abrams Books for Young Readers

A little boy wants to get ready for his bath on his own, but he gets his top stuck over his head. What will happen if he gets stuck forever? Maybe it will be okay. But having a top stuck over your head means he won’t be able to eat or drink that easily, and what happens if the cat tickles his exposed tummy? Will Mum have to step in, or has he got this under control?

Parents of toddlers and small children will be very familiar with the common experience of them getting stuck in their clothes from time to time, but will also know that it’s important to support young children’s developing independence. Rather than showing the little boy getting really upset, this charming and funny picture book shows him thinking of all the great things he can do with his new top-covered point of view – and accepting a helping hand now and again.
