Children’s Underwear Books We Wish We Read

Though growing up with classic Dr. Seuss books and Goodnight Moon as bedtime stories certainly makes for great memories, the children’s book industry is growing in ways we never imagined… and we’re kind of jealous. Call us crazy, but April 2nd marks International Children’s Book day, and there are a lot of children’s underwear books we wish we read.

These awesome underwear books for kids are making us want to be 5 years old again, but alas, we instead share them with our beloved readers.

Check out some of the children’s underwear books we wish we read, and let us know if you’ll be picking up any to read!
