From hats piled high by a peddler to hats stolen by a little fish, there is something inherently whimsical when hats are added to a story. Here are some WONDERFUL hat books and fun.
BLUE HAT, GREEN HAT by Sandra Boynton
A silly board book perfect for even the youngest of readers. This book will have your little ones giggling and asking to read it over and over until they can recite it by heart.
CAPS FOR SALE by Exphyr Slobodkina
What is more fun than a barrel of monkeys? A treeful of cap-stealing monkeys. Hahaha. This is a must-read classic.
THE CAT IN THE HAT by Dr. Seuss
“We looked! Then we saw him step in on the mat! We looked! And we saw him! The Cat in the Hat!” Perfect rhyme, perfect fun, and the most iconic hat-wearing cat ever.
GO, DOG. GO! by P.D. Eastman
Although you do not find the word “hat” in the title, the interchanges involving a dog wearing zany hats are my favorite parts. “Do you like my hat?”
THIS IS NOT MY HAT by Jon Klassen
This is my favorite of Klassen’s hat books. In this story a little fish is bragging about stealing the hat he is wearing from a big fish… but he doesn’t brag for long. Hahaha. This is another funny one.
HAROLD LOVES HIS WOOLLY HAT by Vern Kousky
“A story about a bear, a wolly hat, and what it means to be truly special.” This charming book if full of adorable artwork and heart.
THE QUEEN’S HAT by Steve Antony
Follow the Queen & Royal Guard all over London as they try to catch the Queen’s hat. Hahaha. This chaotic adventure makes us laugh every time.
THE UPSIDE DOWN HAT by Stephen Barr & Gracey Zhang
A thought-provoking tale about a boy who has nothing, but also has everything.
HAT CAT by Troy Wilson & Eve Coy
The grandpa in HAT CAT will totally capture your heart as he interacts with his favorite squirrels and his new little kitten.
COURAGE HATS by Kate Hoefler & Jessixa Bagley
In this story, a girl and bear are nervous about the unknown and make paper hats, but soon they become friends with the thing they were afraid of.
