KIRKUS REVIEW

Bath time can be fun time, especially when you can include all of your favorite floating friends. Mother Penguin points to her watch, indicating that it is time for a bath, and without further prompting, the young penguin is soon scurrying around the house collecting all of the toys and accoutrements necessary for a soapy good time. “I get my plastic porpoise, my rubber shark and snake. I put them in and watch them swim around my bathtub lake.” Soon an inflatable whale, a large ball, and mounds of bubbles join the water-ready toys, making the bathtub an even more exciting destination. Unfortunately, the exuberant penguin realizes that with all of the things now bobbing in the tub, there is no room for him. Illustrations rendered in charcoal with watercolors and gouache feature a happy-go-lucky penguin in his brightly colored environment. Lightly smudged and simply lined drawings are an amusing pairing with the rhyming text. Sure to provide the incentive for wet and wonderful fun. (Picture book. 3-6)
