Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that interactive play and cheerful illustrations enliven the age-appropriate text. Easy-to-follow instructions help toddlers seek out the correct puzzle pieces.
What's the story?
Rub-a-dub-dub, a pup's splashing in a tub, and needs readers' help finding his bath accessories! Children search for the missing objects and attempt to fit them into the correct spots. Playful illustrations capture all the fun of a dip in the bath, and the text is age-appropriate.
Is it any good?
The design and theme of this book is right on target for toddlers. The brief sentences feature toddler-tantalizing items: big billowy bubbles, fun floating toys, and the like. The direct format of a statement followed by a related question enables even young children to comprehend what is being requested of them.
Sparkling illustrations are small on detail but large on charm. Simple cartoon drawings on white backgrounds focus a tot's attention on the context of the picture. The large puzzle pieces are easy to manipulate and offer plenty of opportunity for success. Made of thick, coated cardboard, the sturdy pieces and pages should hold up to repeated handlings.
