Overview

It’s time for a bath! Whee! And Baby obliges as only he can, playing with bubbles (and using them to make facial disguises from Santa’s beard to bunny ears), imitating a motorboat, and letting Mommy wash his single hair.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Bath time is fun time for this moon-faced toddler and his really big smile! From the moment he doffs his diaper through splashing in the tub, playing with the bubbles, tossing the rubber duckies, practicing swimming, and playing motorboat, time in the tub is one child-centric thrill after another! Of course, there's a focus on cleaning, too, and mother scrubs washes his sole hair and baby washes all around his belly button. Although there is a momentary "ow" when some soap gets in this child's eyes, it's dealt with quickly. The dirty diapered tot from the start becomes the sparkling clean tot at the end, one fun, playful activity at a time. This book is perfect for sharing with young children, both those who already love bath time and those who need some encouragement to recognize its potential. Adding to the fun, both mother and father are involved in getting this baby clean. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
School Library Journal
PreS—Both books feature the same smiling, bald baby. In the first book, the toddler has to "go potty." Intimidated, the child investigates the cat's and dog's solutions. Several sound effects and wiggles later, the youngster gives the potty a shot with eventual success and accolades. In Tubby, muddy footprints and an obviously dirty child let readers know that it is bath time. The excited youngster has a grand time playing with bubbles and toys. These appealing books feature simple text, bright acrylic illustrations, and everyday situations that are certain to engage the very young.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
