PreS-K–A humorous story of a tub not happy about the children of the house bathing in it. Every night the bathtub in a house gets so scared of the children who bathe in it that eventually it earns the name Scaredy Bath. The sink and the toilet, the latter with its own complaints, tell the tub to enjoy it. When the children are gone for a few days, Scaredy Bath misses them. They return, from the beach, and the tub is pleased; further, Scaredy Bath enjoys the sweet small baby now bathing in the tub. Blake continues her child-sourced humor (No One Likes a Fart) and the Quentin Blake-like illustrations certainly keep pace.
VERDICT A delightful story where children will be enamored of the conceit that tubs have feelings and can chat. Great for funny story hours.
