    No Baths For Betsy

    No Baths For Betsy is a humorous story about a girl named Betsy who does not like anything at all about taking a bath. Although her mother and father pleaded with her to, "Please, please take a short bath," Betsy didn't budge. To top it off she decided she would never ever take a bath again. She was dirty and stinky and she was happy about being that way. But one day, strange things started growing - right on Betsy! Can you imagine? A squishy tomato was coming right out of her belly button!

    Again, Betsy's mother and father begged, "Please, PLEASE, take a bath." Again, Betsy didn't budge. When they told her she could take a bath or sleep outside - she chose to sleep outside. However, Betsy wasn't able to sleep at all because of everything growing on her. Can you imagine sleeping with a bird's nest on your head? Or a mouse in your pocket? So when got up the next morning she was very tired and she was still very dirty. When the fish in the pond laughed at Betsy she had to decide if, in fact, she might really need a bath after all. But first she has to figure out what to do with all the things that are growing on her.

    No Baths For Betsy is illustrated by Swapan Debnath. The illustrations are rich and colorful as well as humorous and delightful.

    I Love Betsy!

    Betsy reminds me of my 3 young grandkids -- all of whom protest loudly at bath time. After reading this book to them the first time, my little Kasey was convinced that it is MUCH better to be clean after all.

    Now every time they visit, they want me to read again about dirty, smelly Betsy! Fortunately it's a very cute book, so I don't get tired of it.
