Dale Gottlieb showers everyday and hangs her towel in Washington. Her hygienic upbringing could only have been rivaled by Mr. Clean himself! Her younger, but giant brother, Marty attests to the kitchen floor being able to double as a table in a pinch. She has written and illustrated quite a few books including the unforgettable Big Dog, My Stories by Hildy Calpurnia Rose, Seeing Eye Willie, Where Jamaica Go? and Bottom of the Ninth.From Kirkus Reviews:
An off-the-wall approach to hygiene that puts its message across via the funnybone. Ms. Sneed, with turquoise glasses and a wild spout of hair, talks about ordinary topics such as dental care and hair-washing in a snappy, rhythmic vernacular designed to make listeners to sit up and take notice. Her definition of hygiene includes ``brushin' your choppers and blowin' your beak, swabbin' your spuds and scrubbin' your skin.'' Seven brightly colored pop-up spreads feature personal care of the nose, mouth, hands, feet, eyes, ears, and hair. Some of the humor relies upon children's fascination for the gross, but there's also wordplay, bold graphics, flaps to open, and pop-up body parts to add interest. While some spreads are more effective than others, this is an eye-catching approach to a potentially dull topic. (Pop-up. 3-8) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
