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:

A warm, inviting bedtime book from a Caldecott winning illustrator.

Bear sniffed once.

She sniffed twice.

"I smell winter in the air," said Bear. "It is time to crawl into my cave and sleep. But first I must tell Snail."

Denise Fleming presents a warm-hearted story about animals of the forest settling down for their winter nap. But, like children who must go to bed for the night, they each find a way to put it off just a little bit longer. Richly illustrated in fall colors, Denise Fleming's story book world is right on target for preschoolers.

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?
