Splish! Splash! Taking a Bath!

Today at Storytime, we read some funny books about bath time - for kids and for animals! Our first book was Bubble Bath Pirates by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, about two pretend pirates who sing "Yo ho, yo ho, it's off to the bath we go!" when their mother makes them "walk the plank" to take a bath. Then we read about Cowpoke Clyde and Dirty Dawg by Lori Mortensen. After Cowpoke Clyde cleans his whole house, he realizes Dawg needs to be cleaned, too! But Dawg doesn't want a bath! Can you imagine what happens? Hogwash by Karma Wilson was about a farmer having trouble bathing his pigs. And Dini Dinosaur was a funny story about a dinosaur who tried to wash parts of his body without even taking off his clothes!

A slice of pool noodle made a floatable boat with a straw for a mast and craft foam for the sail. We decorated our sails with stickers and permanent-marker drawings. We took them home so we could sail our boats next time we each take a bath!
There was another kind of bath toy that was in every one of the books we read today. Can you guess what kind of a toy that was?
