After a full day of playing outside, it's time for everyone's bath. We follow along with four children of different hues who get their time in the tub!
The lively illustrations will entertain youngsters too young to follow along with or read the words. And the words! Well, you just know there must be a song to go with them; they are metered and we know we are getting "down and dirty (to) sing the bathtub blues."

I am prejudiced for anything with a blues beat but I have to think everyone will love the CD that comes with the book. It isn't long--just a few minutes--but the words will be easily memorized by youngsters and the beat irresistible.
This is a book that uses humor to help children who fear taking a bath, as well as those who love the water so much they jeopardize their safety.
In addition to helping kids deal with fear or remember safety first, it's a nice way to introduce the idea of music as a cure-all for one's fears.
