Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

According to PW, "There is much sly visual enjoyment" in the details of this story about a bath-phobic elephant who learns to brave the waters. Ages 2-6. (Feb.)
Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreS?In typical toddler fashion, Bernard, a young elephant, is stoutly avoiding his bath. "No bath," he proclaims from his hiding place in the linen closet, and proceeds to resist the various blandishments offered by his mother, father, and grandmother: pink bubble bath, soap crayons, a rubber ducky, and a boat. Finally, to demonstrate the joy of bathing, all the grownups begin wallowing and splashing in the tub, playing divers and submarines, and having such a good time that they don't even hear Bernard when he declares, "Bath," until he bellows it. The humorous, lively, yet simple text reads aloud well and should produce giggles from listeners. But although the full-page illustrations feature jolly, expressive elephants, the colors?dull rusts, blues, grays, and greens?detract from the lighthearted mood. This heaviness is repeated in the solidity of the artwork. Even the water cascading from the tub has a strange firmness, and the bath toys appear almost monumental. Nevertheless, there is plenty of action and fun here.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA

Format: Hardcover
My son is two years old and he loves this book. I had to read it to him four times the first night we had the book. The illustrations are fun and it is very easy to read. One reason my son loves this book is that he can relate to all the ways bernard's family tries to get him into the tub with bath toys, and bubbles. Plus the fact that bernard and his family are elephants doesn't hurt.
