I Don't Want to Take a Bath!: 10/03/12
I Don't Want to Take a Bath! by Julie Sykes was a favorite board book when my children were toddlers. I used to read it to them at bath time. I read it one last time before boxing it up to give to a friend.
Little Tiger likes to play. He likes to get dirty. He doesn't like baths. Even when all of his friends go home to take baths in the jungle river and watering holes, he refuses. It's not until his invitation to play is refused that he rethinks his no bath strategy.
The book includes many different kinds of animals. It's fun to have children name the animals and make sounds for them. It's also a good book for those times when little ones are being stubborn.
