Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite
Lance and His Silly Pants by Jamie Sajewel is a charming picture book story about a boy who loves to always wear his favorite pair of pants - just that those pants look rather silly. But it does not matter to him: he loves them more than any other item of clothing he has. Lance and his silly pants go through many adventures together, but then the unthinkable happens and Lance finds himself in a situation that he never wanted to find himself in. The story is written with lovely rhymes which would definitely benefit from being read out loud - so this book would be ideal for parents to read together with their kids, either read it to them or use it to make them practice their own reading skills!
The plot of Lance and His Silly Pants by Jamie Sajewel is aimed at young readers who enjoy colorful books. The illustrations are charming and you can't help but smile with Lance, as the smiles are infectious. While the book is easy to read and will be loved by kids, there is more to it than just entertainment: children (and maybe their parents, too) will learn an important lesson from Lance's adventures and the problem he has to face in the last part of the book. It is all about how important or unimportant the clothes you wear are. Brand names and stylish looks are not what makes a person beautiful. In the end, Lance learns what really counts - and so will young readers.
