Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This tale does for bathtime what these collaborators' previous Tickle Tum! did for mealtime. The bunny baby has grown rather messy-or, as Van Laan so eloquently phrases it, "Ewww yuck/ sticka stuck!" The situation calls for a good "scrubba dub dubba." The author once again shows her fluency in the patois of the nursery: "Washy nosie/ washy toesies/ washy anything/ that growsies." Pons's generously scaled pictures stay in step with her collaborator's giddy, bubbly fun. With gentle humor, the artist, working in watercolors and pastels of mauve, aqua and apricot, underscores the bond between mother and child. Author and illustrator understand that no bathtime is complete without a dramatic and total underwater submergence, the elaborate pouring of water into a too-small receptacle and the sculpting of a fetching "bubblesome doo" (a shampoo-shaped coiffure). "Pull out the drain plug,/ round the toys twirl" signals the end of the entertainment, and the bathroom is left a soapy, soppy mess. But who cares? Well, from her distressed look, it's clear Mama Bunny does-but she gives her happy toddler a snug towel hug nonetheless. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-"Ewww yuck/sticka stuck!" So begins this sequel to Tickle Tum! (Atheneum, 2001). This time, mama bunny is giving little bunny a bath, or trying to. Toddlers will enjoy chanting along to rhymes like, "Skootch down/scrunch your eyes/rinsa-rinse away./Tippitta dippitta tugboat toots./Yahoo! Time to play." Pons's bubbly pictures done in watercolor and soft pastels perfectly portray the young rabbit's tubtime antics. A few of the verses may not roll easily off readers' tongues at first, but repeat readings will make this a bedtime favorite. All in all, libraries should not be surprised if this book comes back with a few damp pages.

The version of this book that my child enjoyed had color pages. While I knew this was not the hardcover book, I didn't expect such low-quality, black and white pictures inside. I should have researched a little more.

This book was my daughters favorite so I bought it for my friend's daughter. The book had a full color cover but the inside was black and white. Pretty disappointed. I will order from Barnes and Nobel next time.

This book and its counterpart "Tickle tum" are such cute books for the young child. My 2.5 year old daughter really enjoys both. This book is fun to read aloud. It has fun catchy little phrases that the child recalls after re-reading. The illustrations are cute and funny. This particular book is about an "ooh yuk sticka stuck" dirty little bunny, that needs a bath. And how he/she has fun in the bathtub only to make more cleanup time for the mommy in the end. My daughter (and probably your child too) will enjoy the fun little "cutesy" phrases that pop up, and they (like mine) may begin using them in their daily vocabulary, so watch out! :)
