Rated 5 out of 5 by from Memorable I read this book to my children many, many times when they were little. My 15 year old daughter was recently asked what her favourite childhood book was and her response was the "Tub People". Our memories of reading this book together are so special that I just bought a copy of it for my newborn nephew so he will share the magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Tub People My three-year-old son is just enchanted with this simple tale about little people who just happen to be wooden and live on the edge of the tub. Although they hardly move a muscle, they manage to come alive in the wonderful illustrations and have a charming tale to tell. I would highly recommend this little book.
