PreS–Ten babies play outside in the sand, the dirt, and puddles. After each activity they're told they need a scrub, but they all shout, "No!" Finally, after the stinky diapers, there's no choice, and the howling youngsters are placed into the same sudsy tub. "Now what do those rockers do? They sing â The Baby Bathtub Blues,'" until they're all whooping it up with toys and tambourines. Soon enough, bath time's over. "No!" they all shout as they head back outside ready to do it all again. The text focuses on the antics of four of the babies at a time interspersed with an up-tempo refrain. The difficulty is that these textual segments have changing rhyming patterns, making the book awkward to read. The illustrations capture the energy and sweetness of the scantily haired, round-faced babies. The minimalist line drawings of their animated faces and pudgy bodies are highly adept at bringing each child to life. Unfortunately, the coloration is uneven. Children will respond to this romp, but adults might just as easily walk away with a headache. Even fans of Rock-a-Baby Band (Little, Brown, 2003) might find that the concept is stretched too far here.– Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
