The Runaway Shirt
When my mom does laundry, my favorite part is when she folds the clothes; I can sometimes get her to throw the clothes on me and cover my whole body with warmth. My favorite part of laundry is kind of like the kid in the book The Runaway Shirt. In this book, a lady is folding clean clothes. She finds a shirt that needs folding, and she puts it on the bed to fold. It gets folded, but it doesn’t stay! The lady must catch the runaway shirt and try folding it again on the bed. The lady and the shirt have fun together with the not-fun job of doing laundry.
I like this story because it’s silly to see the lady chasing a runaway shirt around the house. It’s goofy when she thinks about hanging up the loose shirt in her closet and then she wants to wear it herself! The characters are different-looking than me, but that’s okay, and fun to see in books. I think that kids of any age will like this story because it is one that is relatable and just fun to read.
