Sally Snickers is an ordinary little girl who gets into trouble at school for wanting to be an individual, and wear her knickers on her head.
Sally’s teacher is quite put out by this quirk.
But the teacher says she shouldn’t have
her knickers on display
and unless she wears a proper hat,
she’s not allowed to play.
One of the things I liked about this story is that it’s so relatable for small children. I remember a friend’s son who never went to the supermarket without his underpants, worn proudly on his head. It’s a situation kids find humour in, and it’s a way of asserting their individuality.
Sally Snickers’ Knickers is told in rollicking rhyme, and the hilarious illustrations rollick along too.
Sally Snickers’ Knickers is about being an individual, and about supporting your friends. But it’s also a playful, fun read, which makes it a great classroom book.
Sally Snickers’ Knickers is published by Walker Books for readers aged 4+
