For the books in this Bundle, I knew that I wanted to include a board book for the younger kids and a picture book for the older ones. I found the perfect picture book in Maggie and Michael Get Dressed. I read this in preschool storytime and the kids just laughed at Michael dressed Maggie. And Let’s Get Dressed! is simple and has the pages tabbed out for little hands.

The Alex Toys One Two Tie My Shoe! is a great way to learn how to tie your shoes and it’s a toy that we have in our Family Center as well. I only included two shoes in the Bundle so I’ll have replacement laces or shoes if needed.

I made a whole kit of The Jacket I Wear in the Snow that includes the book, a lapboard, and the Lakeshore Learning puffy cloth pieces to re-tell the story.

And the Melissa and Doug Teddy Wear Plush is perfect because it has some different kinds of closures (snaps, Velcro, ties, zippers, and a buckle) and is non-gender specific!

The clothes Bundle has been very popular and has circulated eleven times since releasing five months ago! It was the fastest one out of the gates, circulating four times in the first month.
