Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reS-In this exuberant book, an appealing, dirty-faced, grime-covered toddler has a bath and a shampoo. The rhymed text ("Bubbles, bubbles in the tubbles,/splishy, splashy, splooshy scrubbles") makes good use of sounds that describe the process of getting clean. Simple, realistic pictures with cheerful gold backgrounds reflect the child's actions as she bathes with her green toy frog and yellow duck. Finally, she is ready for bed in her flannel pajamas. Very young children will enjoy this familiar bedtime romp.

From Booklist

Ages 2-5. "Dirty fingers, dirty toes, / dirty shoulders, dirty nose. / All my dirty deeds are done. / Time to have some bubble fun." So begins this lively, rhyming picture book, part of the Harper Growing Tree series. A young child covered with dirt ends her day with a freshly drawn bubble bath. Kosaka's warm illustrations celebrate the routine as the little girl throws off her clothes, grabs favorite toys, jumps into the water, wraps up in a towel, then dances about in her birthday suit. This concise, colorful book marries text and pictures to show how a time-honored bedtime activity prepares a child to accept the end of the day. Kathy Broderick

I will say that the return was done quickly and I was refunded my money even before they could have gotten the book back.

Perhaps with children's books, nostalgia is the most important thing.

I don't know how I ended up with this book, but I can't say I'm much of a fan. I don't love the nonsense words in some of the rhymes. The illustrations are decent, certainly the best part of this book. But between this and Blue Hat Green Hat, BHGH wins every time.

At least it is not trying to be more than it is.

Positive side note: my girls did learn to point to the duck and the frog, especially since there is not much else really going on here.

I bought this book after seeing it in the "Oppenheim Toy Portfolio" guide. My 21 month-old daughter and I instantly fell in love with it after reading only the first few pages. The rhyme is fun and the illustrations are lovely and colorful. *Great* read-aloud book - highly recommended!

We loved this book 10 years ago so much that I bought it for my sister who is expecting, along w/some bath toys from her registry.

I paid $7.99 for what should have been a hardcover, new book. Instead I received a used, written on, torn paperback with its $.99 sticker still on it. I received the book on Monday and only had that day to return it as well. What if I hadn't gotten it on Monday? I will say that the return was done quickly and I was refunded my money even before they could have gotten the book back.

This book is cute if its being read at home. Being a teacher I found the pictures a bit inappropriate as the child is taking a bath and a few of them involve her being not dressed. It's cute but in a more intimate parent child setting.

The books by Dr Seuss, Eric Carle, and Eastman are some of the most popular books for children. However, this book, along with "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" are some of my daughter's favorite books. Thankfully my daughter loves to look at books (in addition to building with her blocks/legos, drawing, watching youtube videos ((mostly videos by cyriak as well as videos with animals)), drawing and playing with puzzles. Depending on the age of your child, I would recommend getting the board book unless your child is 3 years of age or older.
