The Bath Time Book

The Bath Time Book - Michael Yu, Rachel Yu

I have a friend with three children under the age of four. While visiting, I happened to peruse this title on her kindle.


Now, I get that the right book can help with a lot of things, and I know that bath time is a struggle for many parents.


I hate to pan a book, but there's got to be something better than this. The artwork is simplistic and unimaginative. The text is uninspired.


"Can I play? he asked his Mom.

“No,” she said. “It’s bath time.”

"Can I play? he asked his Dad.

“No,” he said. “It’s bath time.”

"Can I play? he asked his sister, Cathy.

“No,” she said. “It’s bath time.”

He didn’t know who else to ask.


What Went Well:

  • Not much

Even Better If:

  • Pretty much everything was different.
