Editorial Reviews

Review

"The precocious, emphatic narration... and escalating back-and-forth between Livi and her mother will enliven any read-aloud. There are plenty of books on the shelf covering kids’ reluctance to get into the bathtub, but Maizes, making an assured debut, and Paraskevas suggest there’s room for one more." – Publisher’s Weekly


"[A] delightful debut from Maizes... Paraskevas’ lively illustrations have a perfect hint of whimsy infused into their colorful displays. His artwork is reminiscent of David Shannon’s in Too Many Toys! (Scholastic, 2008) as he is able to translate the precociousness of childhood into his digitally created art... This is sure to be a crowd-pleaser in story times, classrooms, and laps everywhere. –Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Half Hollow Hills Public Library, Dix Hills, NY, School Library Journal

"Readers will be thrilled" – Kirkus Reviews

This is a truly wonderful book for children. The story is amusing but simple enough for the little ones to follow. The artwork is bright, vivid and colorful. Most of all, it truly captures the voice of the little girl trying desperately to avoid getting in the bath and her mother losing her patience. It would make for a wonderful present any munchkin would enjoy, boy or girl.

"On My Way To The Bath" is a witty, creative kids book which is beautifully illustrated and will having your kids say, "read it again!" A very fun, inspired read full of hilarious adventures as Livi makes her way (slowly) to the "boring" bath.

I wish I would have had Sarah Maizes book, On My Way to the Bath, fifteen years ago! What a delight to read and enjoy. Kids will be enchanted with the story and illustrations, and I'm sure it will make getting into the bath easier.

I had bought my grandson Sarah Maizes "On My Way To Bed," and he loved it. This book was also a hit with him. Lizzie's imagination is a wonder to behold.

Though there are many times that if i was this little girl's mommy, I'd be laying down the law for this much "dawdling," there are many other times that we use imaginative play to get things done...(like hopping like a frog to put our coat away, or cleaning up all the legoes before the firetruck toy runs them over). in that sense this book is such a good reminder to have fun along with our little imagination machines.

I gave this book to my nephew as a present and his mom tells me it is one of his favorite books. It's a fun, creative, and wonderfully illustrated book about a parenting ritual most people with small children should be able to relate to.
