Summer is the time for shorts and T-shirts, especially when you're a kid. But that doesn't mean your littles can't show some style — and share their love of animals. These five animal graphic tees are perfect for long summer days of serious play, and are cute enough to count as dressed up. At least as far as T-shirts go.

We're always a sucker for a Frenchie tee, and we love this one in hot pink and turquoise. We wish it came in big girl sizes, in fact.
