Does your child show curiosity about underwear? It is a piece of clothing that is part of everyday life but can sometimes be taboo to talk about. "A Brief History of Underpants" by Christine Van Zandt breaks down this barrier with a book on the history of underwear from all over the world. It exposes kids to different cultures and customs by observing the evolution of fashion's most unmentionable garment. The illustrations by Harry Briggs bring this to life, providing exciting visuals on what the different types of underwear looked like and how they were worn. It's part history and part humor, giving a new way to learn about innovations around the globe. This book also includes fun activities like how to make a Fundoshi, underwear worn by Japanese sumo wrestlers, which brings an interactive take to underpants history.
