Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The gecko doesn't have eyelids, so in order to keep its eyeballs dirt-free the lizard licks them with its tongue.

Some ants keep clean by scrubbing each other with feet that have been dipped in their oily saliva.

The jerboa takes a dust bath!

Time for a Bath is the very young picture book companion to Time to Eat and Time to Sleep by Caldecott-Honor winning duo Steve Jenkins and Robin Page. With Jenkins' masterful and vibrantly colored cut-and-torn paper illustrations paired with an informative yet lively, accessible text, Time for a Bath playfully addresses some of the most bizarre and ironic ways wild animals can bathe. 

Synopsis:

All is calm in old man Fookwires yard until new neighborsLittle Old Lady Hu and her cat, Muffinsmove in next door. Muffins is one mean dude! He terrorizes the birds, interrupts Fookwires painting, and ties the squirrels tails together. Fookwire is upset, but not nearly as upset as the squirrels, who devise an ingenious plan to stop Muffins cold. In this hilarious follow-up to Those Darn Squirrels!, the tongue-in-cheek text is perfectly complemented by the quirky, inventive illustrations.

Synopsis:

Itand#8217;s time to sleep! Who dozes standing on one leg without falling over, snores while flying, or snuggles together in a big sleepy pile?
