Sock Monkey Goes To Hollywood: A Star Is Bathed: 08/19/15
Sock Monkey Goes To Hollywood: A Star Is Bathed by Cece Bell was her debut book. It's the story of a stinky sock monkey whose friends stage an intervention. Sock Monkey can't go to the Awards Ceremony unless he takes a bath.
This book is for anyone who has a kid with a special toy that gets taken everywhere. It can be really tough to wrestle away the favorite toy to get it washed. Here as Sock Monkey is a toy and all his friends are too, it's also a tale of why it's important to bathe, much in the same way as I Don't Want to Take a Bath by Julie Skyes
My sister in law actually used a duplicate version to swap out a clean one for the one that needed washing. That idea worked until the eye of one of the toys got scratched, thus making the two distinguishable from each other.
