A hilarious and clever bath-time picture book by humorist, novelist, and TV writer Simon Rich, with illustrations by Tom Toro (How to Potty Train Your Porcupine).

 
And so begins a hilarious dip into the choppy waters of a nightly ritual that parents and children alike often dread. Filled with soapsuds, rubber duckies, and existential angst, Simon Rich’s debut picture book is a splashy tale of cleanliness—and survival. This irreverent read-aloud treat about facing fear and embracing adventure might just change the way you see bath time (and your bathroom) forever.

Reviews:

“A visual (and comedic) feast for budding smart-alecks.”Patton Oswalt

“Along with offering a bit of bathroom behavior modification, this is, undeniably, storytime gold for young audiences large or small.”―Booklist

“This delightful picture book turns the widespread phenomenon of toddler bathtime fears on its head...The book’s skillfully crafted storyline will appeal to children as well as adults working to avoid meltdowns when little ones have a wash. ... A refreshing, amusing approach to overcoming ablutophobia in small children.” ―Kirkus

 

MY REVIEW
I'm Terrified of Bath Time is a fun children's book told from the perspective of the bathtub. Bathtub is not a fan of bath time. Why? Because water comes out of his nose, his eyes are squeezed, and sometimes he even gets pooped in. Yuck! But Bathtub realizes if he asks for change, change can happen. Instead of being kicked in the nose, he'd like to receive a makeover. Instead of screaming, a song would be lovely. And it will be so much fun that Sink and Toilet will be jealous. Now doesn't that sound wonderful?
This is such a silly book. Kids will absolutely love it, whether they're a fan of bath time or not. Parents will also enjoy the overall absurdity of the story, and the illustrations are sure to delight young and old readers. 
It's a book that can be read again and again for a laugh. Definitely a fun, highly recommended read.
5 stars!
