Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A smiling toddler makes bath time seem easy and fun in this warm board book: "These are my clothes. Look, I am taking off all my clothes! I am ready for a bath now," he explains. He uses his orange washcloth, happily lets his mother shampoo his hair, and sails his red boat in the bathwater, finishing up with a cuddly towel. Slegers's characteristically bright, smudgy paintings convey a common experience with a light, appealing touch. Available simultaneously: Playing. Up to age 3. (May)
From the Publisher

"What baby doesn’t love a bath? This charming book helps your little ones name all the parts of their bathtime routine." —Jenny Brown, www.twentybyjenny.com

"[Kids] are going to enjoy reading . . . about a little boy who also loves his bathtime. . . . The author makes it look like a lot of fun! This is probably my favorite book of the ones that I've seen in this series." —Jennifer Donovan, www.5MinutesForBooks.com

"Rub-a-dub-dub, see the tot in the tub. A toddler narrates his bath-time fun and shows off the everyday materials used to rinse the suds along the way. The slant on the senses encourages a dip." —Kirkus Reviews (July 1, 2011)

Kirkus Reviews

Rub-a-dub-dub, see the tot in the tub.

A toddler narrates his bath-time fun and shows off the everydaymaterials used to rinse the suds along the way. Each spread highlights a specific product, often displayed with a sensory emphasis; "shampoo smells so sweet," and the towel "is warm and cuddly." Thumbnail images feature each individual item, and a full-page illustration shows it in context. Thick black lines describe the round-headed youngster; there's no grime be found anywhere. The bubbly boy's voice hardly rings a false note. "This is the bathtub. Look, water is rushing out of the faucet!" Mom's hands remain the only adult presence, and the son unabashedly narrates the process throughout with genuine enthusiasm: "Look, I am taking off all my clothes!" The child-centered perspective dominates each soapy step. Companion title Playing covers similar ground when toys capture his attention.

There's not enough original content for an extended swim, but the slant on the senses encourages a dip nonetheless. (Board book. 1-2)
