Storytime: Very Good Hats by Emma Straub

What makes a very good hat? Can a raspberry be a good hat? What about pajama pants? In Emma Straub’s debut picture book, anything can be a hat, as long as you believe in it. Very Good Hats is an innovative and joyful read that will inspire you to look at everyday objects through a whole new perspective.
