A cute story told from a young boy’s point of view about the importance of being kind and helpful to others but taking time to have fun too. This happy little fella spends much of his time helping around the house and around his neighbourhood – doing chores and being polite. At the end of the day he likes to have a little bit of bath-time fun; the kind of fun that creates laughter and giggles.
The author writes the story in a rhythmic pattern. Each page has a sweet message and is accompanied by a bright, artistic picture that compliments the words. A Toot in the Tub is a charming and fun book that will teach children so much about being good to your family, kind to your neighbours, and respectful to animals and nature. But that it is also okay to be silly sometimes and find reasons to giggle. Kids will just love this book and will find reason to giggle themselves with the turning of each page. This book is just one of those sweet ways for parents/guardians to have a pretty terrific “teachable moment” with their little ones without it actually feeling like one.
