Johnny’s father explains that big boys wear clothes. Doesn’t he want to be big like Dad? As Johnny gazes up, he decides that wearing clothes may be a small price to pay to reach such heights. Everyone is happy as Johnny practices putting on his clothes. And now when he runs into the ocean, he makes sure to take his red swimsuit but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll always wear it!

Review:

Enthusiastic junior nudists everywhere will unite behind this one. (Booklist 2012-05-15)

The voice of Jamaica is in poet Olive Senior's lilting prose, and the lively illustrations are painted in Fernandes's signature child-friendly style. (CM 2012-05-11)

With its charming, relatable plot and melodic rhythm, Birthday Suit is perfect for storytime. (Blake Eligh Quill and Quire)

This delightful book will elicit giggles from three-to six-year-olds and knowing smiles from parents. (Aliki Tryphonopoulos Canadian Children's Book News)

Fernandes' bright, busy paintings are a good match for the buoyant and ample text, which is full of phonic riffs that make the tale a terrific read-aloud. (Kirkus Reviews 2012-03-28)

Written by a poet and author originally from Jamaica, the story is fun and engaging, the poetic use of language rich and lyrical with a definite Caribbean lilt. (Ken Kilback Resource Links)

Comical events will appeal to young children who can identify with strong-willed, independent-thinking Johnny. (Lynn Vanca School Library Journal 2012-09-01)

This delightful book will elicit giggles from three- to six-year olds and knowing smiles from parents. (Aliki Tryphonopoulos Canadian Children's Book News 2012-09-30)

Enthusiastic junior nudists everywhere will unite behind this one. (Daniel Kraus Booklist 2012-06-15)

Olive Senior adds this exuberant, joyously-infused tale for wee clothing anti-enthusiasts to her impressive writing repertoire. (Shivanee Ramlochan Paper Based Bookshop 2013-08-10)
