Back of Book:
When little Bobby Babinski is reluctant to get into his tub at bath time, his father gets to work to make the event more fun. Cutting a hole in the roof of the house, Papa Babinski constructs a massive slippy slide for Bobby to use. And while doing loopity-loops and glippety-glides is great fun, it’s still not enough for Bobby. In order to satisfy the ever-increasing whims of his son, Papa Babinski goes to extreme lengths, including adding a few aquatic critters. Will Bobby ever be satisfied? Will he ever get clean?
I received a copy of this picture book from Sleeping Bear Press in exchange for an honest review.
“Bobby Babinski’s Bathtub” by Judy Young follows a young boy who doesn’t want to take a bath. A desperate father asks Bobby what would make him get in the tub. What follows is a laugh out loud set of escapades as each request from Bobby becomes more outlandish and crazy! His father creates a massive slide, adds aquatic animals, and even creates a beach for Bobby. The text is written with engaging examples and tons of adjectives making it a perfect read-aloud The illustrations by Kevin Barry bring a fun and creative story to life. The expressions on both Bobby and his father’s face in each picture are engaging and bright. This is a fun book that readers will want to hear over and over.
