Have a child who doesn’t like sleeping alone? Or balks at taking a bath? A pair of child-friendly picture books offers knowing reassurance.
It may be Henry’s bath time, but Henry has other ideas. What if he gives the cat a bath instead? Would the hens or the goat or the cow like to take his place in the tub full of toys? Then, when Henry sees that the bath is warm and bubbly and all set to go, he’s ready to hop in himself, encouraging reluctant little bathers to follow suit.

PreS—These simple, whimsical books feature a strong-minded yet lovable youngster. In Bath, Henry does not want to get washed or have his hair shampooed. He considers putting the various farm animals in the tub, but decides against it. Then he rushes outside, greeting all the critters and taking off his clothes as he runs by, and finally jumps into an outdoor bathtub decked out like a pirate ship. In the second title, Henry is told he cannot have Mama, Papa, the cat, the dog, the hens, the ducks, the goat, or the cow in bed with him. After saying goodnight to the animals in their respective pens, coops, and sheds, he settles down under the covers and goes to sleep. While the action focuses mostly on Henry, his patient, always-loving parents are an important part of the stories. The repetitive texts are accompanied by boldly outlined illustrations in earth tones with spots and splashes of brighter hues. Full of activity and emotion, the pictures convey Henry's energy and spirit.—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
