Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 1. Mrs. Wishy-Washy thinks her farm animals need a bath for Christmas--a cold bath. No bath, no presents. The pig, the cow, and the goose are horrified that Mrs. W. expects them to break through the ice in the old tin tub and wash up. But Goose has a plan. He leads the animals into the bathroom, where Mrs. Wishy-Washy has everything from shampoo and face cream to fluffy pink towels, and he invites the gang in for a splash. The art provides much of the fun, as in the picture depicting the animals soaking in a steamy bubble bath. The animals are clean and pretty when Mrs. W. comes home, but she notes the mess, and the critters are sure their presents will be lost. Happily, in the spirit of the holiday, all is forgiven. Mrs. W. even promises to put warm water in their tin tub--as long as they leave her bath alone. The rhyme doesn't always scan, but the humor is high,^B and the watercolor artwork, nice and big in execution, shows off the characters' charm and pluck. Ilene Cooper

I had never heard of Mrs. Wishy Washy before but saw it on a list of books for purchase from my 3 year old daughter's preschool. We LOVE this book. We've had it about a month now and we read it at least twice per day. And the thing is, I love it too, not just my daughter. The rhymes are great, the pictures are fun and its such a cute story. It's a lot of fun to read out loud. I like this book so much I quickly ordered another Mrs. Wishy Washy book that turned out to be much shorter and not too great. So that was a disappointment, but this book of hers is really fun and children will love it.

As a Pre-K teacher my students and I are big fans of Mrs. Wishy Washy. This plot is similar to the original in that she is trying to bathe them so the children can really relate to it. When the animals have a good ole time bathing in Mrs. Washy's bathroom my class can't stop giggling. You can't go wrong with a Mrs. Wishy Washy book in an early childhood classroom.

I love Mrs. Wishy-Washy! I enjoy reading this particular story to my kids. My own children love the cow, pig and duck and their crazy antics. It is a great rhyming story with bright, colorful illustrations and a wonderful book to add to any collection! I also used Mrs. Wishy-Washy stories with beginning readers in my first grade classroom.

This was a delightful book; Mrs. Wishy-Washy lives on! So enjoyed the antics of the animals and Mrs. W's reaction. My grandchildren were spellbound. Can't wait to read future installments!
