What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "How do YOU take a bath?
Does your mama comb your fur?
Do you shake off all your dirt?
Do you splash and flap and quack?
Do the birdies peck your back?
elephants, pigs, monkeys, hippos, and more in this charming rhyming
picture book from veteran author Kate McMullan. How does a pig take a
bath? It sinks in the mud! What about a chicken? It thrashes about in
dust! And a cat? Why, it licks itself clean, of course! Sydney Hanson's
adorable illustrations toggle neatly between animals in nature grooming
themselves and humorous depictions of children attempting the animals'
bathing tactics. By the end of the book, the child finally makes his way
to the bathtub, no mud baths or lick baths about it!"
My Two Cents:
"How Do You Take a Bath?" is an adorable story about how different animals, including humans, take baths. It is the perfect book to urge my girls to take a bath (sometimes an easy project, sometimes not an easy project). Filled with a nice rhyme and rhythm, this book is catchy!
The highlight for me was the illustrations! They are great and my girls love pointing out the different animals and talking about how each of the animals takes a bath. This book definitely got a thumbs up from both of my three year olds!
