Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems

Naked Mole Rat Gets DressedIf you were a naked mole rat why would you ever want to get dressed? I mean, based on the name of your species you should prefer to be naked shouldn’t you? Well, not all naked mole rats are alike and Wilbur really enjoys wearing clothes. He likes to dress fancy or funny or sometimes even in a cool outfit. All the other naked mole rats think he is a bit strange and when they sarcastically suggest that he open a clothing store, he thinks it’s a great idea! But the other naked mole rats aren’t happy with Wilbur because as they say “NAKED MOLE RATS DON”T WEAR CLOTHES!”

Wilbur’s buddies decide that he needs to visit the very oldest and wisest naked mole rat, Grand-pah, who will certainly set him straight on his choice to get dressed. They explain to Grand-pah how Wilbur enjoys wearing clothes in spite of the fact that he is a naked mole rat. When Grand-pah asks Wilbur “why” he likes to wear clothes, Wilbur responds “why not?”

Sometimes life is as simple as that. . .”why not?”

This is another delightful book by Mo Willems and I highly recommend it.

(And for those of you in the Chicago area, the Lifeline Theatre will be performing an adaptation of the book next spring: check it out!)
