When Everybody Wore a Hat

Texts and Tunes: When Everybody Wore a Hat

When trying to decide which book to spotlight in honor of Hat Day, it was easy to pick When Everybody Wore a Hat ($8) by author/illustrator William Steig.

We've all heard the, "Back when I was young" stories and have probably started to relay them to our own children. Steig, who contributed 1600 illustrations to the New Yorker starting in 1930, also wanted to share his past with the future. The book begins with,

"This is a story of when I was a boy, 100 years ago, when fire engines were pulled by horses, boys did not play with girls, kids went to libraries for books, there was no tv, you could see a movie for a nickel, and everybody wore a hat. – William Steig"

To give your lil ones some insight into history, and hats of course, buy them this treasure of a book so they can enjoy learning about times past and enjoy the beautiful illustrations. It might even make them appreciate all of the spoils they take for granted every day.
