Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems is one of my 4 year-old daughter's favorite books. I also really like it and I picked it as the book to read to children in her classroom as "community reader" last week. The book is witty and smart and a joy to read both by children and adults.
But I would also like to point out that naked mole rats are fascinating animals. If, like me, you haven't heard of them, check out one of many articles about them on the web (e.g., this one on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/

This topic is related to issues of Kindergarten readiness but goes well beyond them. I hope that this legislation will pass.
