Hooray! SPLASH! Leslie Patricelli’s beloved Baby is back!

It’s time for a bath! Whee! And Baby obliges as only he can, playing with bubbles (and using them to make facial disguises from Santa’s beard to bunny ears), imitating a motorboat, and letting Mommy wash his single hair. And what would tubby time be without running away naked and shiny clean—only to be scooped up and tickled? A beloved bedtime ritual takes on new joy in Leslie Patricelli’s bright artwork, exuberant language, and simple, familiar scenes.
Leslie Patricelli is the creator of a series of best-selling board books starring her adorable bald baby. She is also the author-illustrator of two picture books about the Patterson Puppies as well as HIGHER! HIGHER!, a BOSTON GLOBE-HORN BOOK Honor winner. She lives in Ketchum, Idaho.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute story We enjoy this author's book. Our son LOVES the pictures of the baby. Personally "Tubby" is not our favourite. Not as much 'story' at some of the other books by thus author.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top bedtime choice My grandson (almost 4 yrs) loves this book. He identifies with the baby in the book and with the story line. It is engaging and my grandson asks lots of questions and works to read along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute favorite My little man just recieved this book for his birthday. He can't get enough of it. We read it at least 5 times a day. And when I'm not reading it to him, he will pull it off the shelf and flip through the pages himself. He really loves the baby and has to kiss one of the pages, with the large smiling baby face, everytime he turns to it. I'm running out to get the rest of the books in the collection!
