Wonder-Shirts T-Shirts and Tote Bags Review by Rebecca Huff

PO Box 181189
Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

What's the next best thing to reading a book? Reading a book while wearing a Wonder-Shirt of course! Want to get on the librarian's good side? Carry a tote bag with the Driven to Read image on it!

Wonder-Shirts, Inc has been around since 1980, but the great thing about the t-shirts and tote bags are the illustrations, which are by some of the finest illustrators in children's literature, including Kevin Henkes (Kitten's First Full Moon and Lilly's Big Day), Garth Williams (Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, Little House on the Prairie, The Rescuers, and The Cricket in Times Square) and Judy Schachner (Skippyjon Jones series), among others. 

The tote bag with the Driven to Read logo displays Mo Willem's beloved and hilarious Pigeon. Tote bags are jumbo sized with squared-off bottoms, and they will hold more books than you want to carry! They are made from sturdy canvas-type material, and the handles fit easily over your shoulder.

The t-shirts that I received were the box-style t-shirts, but various designs are also available as fitted shirts. The t-shirts are made from 100% pre-shrunk cotton and are very comfortable yet durable, as they are made of the heavy weight cotton. Mo Willems also illustrates the "Books Are a Big Deal" t-shirt. Edward Gorey is the illustrator for the adult size t-shirt displaying cats, books, and the word READ. Everyone will know you are a book lover when you wear this shirt.

Wonder-Shirts make a great addition to our homeschool. I would love to have matching t-shirts for everyone in the family to wear on library day!
