Arthur’s Underwear

Arthurs Underwear

This week’s book is Arthur’s Underwear by Marc Brown. This book is part of the Arthur Adventure Series and is a favorite among young kids everywhere. Arthur’s Underwear is an interesting take on the phobias of young kids. While a classmate of Arthur’s is up at the board solving a problem, his pants rip. This causes Arthur to develop a fear of having his pants fall down. Since Arthur is so afraid of being embarrassed, he can’t seem to stop dreaming about his whole class laughing at him. Arthur goes to his friend for help, and the story develops. I would recommend this book to grades TK-2nd since it teaches important values and helps kids understand that they are not alone at a young age.
