    26. Button Up!By Alice SchertlePages- 40Copyright- 2013**Poetry BookI thought this book was very cute! It was made up of short poems that had to do with different clothing that animals wear. This book could be used to teach younger children when it is the right time to wear a sweater versus when it is time to wear a swim suit. The poems were strange, but cute.
