"Good-natured slapstick...and bright rhymes."
-- School Library Journal
It's bath time, but after a day of dirty, icky, gooey fun in the backyard, young Joe the Frog is stalling. Dad plays along...until a mishap lands him in a mud puddle! Guess who else is ready for a bath now? This easy-to-read, rhyming story gives beginning readers and their parents lots to chuckle about together. A great addition to Level 1 Green Light Reader collections.
A stubborn young frog named Joe does not want to take a bath. He delays his father as long as possible by asking him to fetch his favorite toys, until Father is so loaded down he trips and lands in the mud. Now Joe is not the only one who needs a bath.
Suitable goofiness keeps this story of maneuverings sprightly and humorous, as do the ebullient cartoony drawings, which aptly demonstrate the good-natured parry and thrusts that mark the lighter moments of parent-child discourse.” —Kirkus Reviews
The time-honored bath-procrastination ploy is portrayed, for a change, with a lovely absence of tension. Good-natured slapstick sets the tone, and Andersons bright rhymes follow suit, reinforced by fresh watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations dancing on bright white pages.”—School Library Journal
Dad's struggle to get young Joe the Frog to stop playing in the yard and take a bath lands them both in the mud in this comical Level 1 Green Light Reader filled with rhyme and repetition.
