Can you think of anything better than hearing the giggles of children? One word makes them do just that...underwear. During our recent book fair, I ran across a couple of books that I'll be sharing with the kiddos this week on that very theme. Let the giggles begin!

"Aliens love underpants, in every shape and size,But there are no underpants in space, so here's a big surprise..."
You probably thought aliens came down to Earth with a view to taking over the planet - but, no, they simply want to steal your pants!
This zany, hilarious tale, delightfully brought to life by Ben Cort's vibrant illustrations, is sure to enchant and amuse the whole family. With a madcap, rhyming text, perfect for joining in, this story is fantastically fresh and funny. They'll be laughing their pants off!

On a wild and windy day all the washing blows away. Socks and vests, a woolly hat, and far worse than all of that - Charlie's Superhero Underpants! Disaster! Charlie sets off around the world to find them. He discovers a fine French Fox wearing sister Sophie's Socks, he finds a pair of llamas, wearing brother Ben's pyjamas...But Who has got Charlie's Superhero Underpants?

In the following book, I found it interesting that in the sixteenth century, people wore underwear to protect their fancy outer clothing. Since those clothes were so difficult to wash, they relied on their undergarments to keep them clean. Their underwear, though, was only washed a few times a year! Yikes!!!
You know how you tell your kids to be sure and change their underpants every day? Well, researchers are working to invent fabrics that will only have to be changed once a month! Seriously????
