Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Readers rub-a-dub-dub with The Fish Is Me: Bathtime Rhymes, selected by Neil Philip, illus. by Claire Henley. The squeaky clean volume contains works by the likes of Douglas Florian and Carl Sandburg, as well as traditional ditties (to wit: "Miss Susie had a baby,/ His name was Tiny Tim,/ She put him in the bathtub/ To see if he could swim"). Henley's mix of spot art and full-bleed paintings of happy, soaking-wet youngsters make bathtime look fun. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

reSchool-Grade 4-This sweet and breezy collection focuses on the ins and outs of bathtime. Some kids like baths, others don't; some use soap, others won't. In 18 short, energetic poems, the book covers experiences before, during, and after a soak in the tub. And while the downside is touched upon (soap in the eyes, the floor all wet), most of the verses are celebratory. While a diverse group of poets, such as Carl Sandburg, John Drinkwater, Aileen Fisher, and Grace Nichols, is represented, the consistent style and rich, textured colors of the paintings pull the collection together. Full-page illustrations mix with the vignettes. Light blues and purples accent each drawing. The kids, all round faced and squat, represent myriad racial roots, underlining the universality of wash-up time. Kids who have not been exposed to much poetry will find this collection easily accessible and thoroughly entertaining.

Format: Hardcover
Bathtime laments and laughter both bubble through the pages of this compilation of 18 verses. The poets range from the well known, such as Carl Sandburg, to the less well known but equally entertaining.
Here's a sampler, a short verse by Neil Philip:
I don't ever wash,
whatever the weather--
it's only the dirt
that holds me together!
Lively, bright paintings of children of all shades of skin color finish off this clean package.
