Perfect for fans of Five Little Monkeys Jump in the Bath, this fun and educational picture book brings together adorable baby animals and bathtime. 

How do YOU take a bath?  
Does your mama comb your fur? 
Do you shake off all your dirt? 
Do you splash and flap and quack? 
Do the birdies peck your back? 
No! 

Follow elephants, pigs, monkeys, hippos, and more in this charming rhyming picture book from veteran author Kate McMullan. How does a pig take a bath? It sinks in the mud! What about a chicken? It thrashes about in dust! And a cat? Why, it licks itself clean, of course! Sydney Hanson's adorable illustrations toggle neatly between animals in nature grooming themselves and humorous depictions of children attempting the animals' bathing tactics. By the end of the book, the child finally makes his way to the bathtub, no mud baths or lick baths about it!



Did you know polar bears scrub their faces clean with snow? Or that turtles let little fish clean their shells? Join an adorable array of little animals (and a few cute kids) in their bathtime routines in Kate McMullan’s How Do You Take a Bath? and discover all the unique ways little ones take a bath. 

McMullan’s sweet, rhyming text takes little ones on a fun and educational journey around the globe to find out how different animals take a bath. From dusty chickens to hairy bees, cat tongue baths, and good ole fashioned bubble baths, little readers will be charmed and amused by each page. Hanson’s dreamy bathtime scenes, full of soft colors, super cute animals, and diverse kids, beautifully capture the story. 

How Do You Take a Bath? will make bathtime a joyous, sweet adventure for little readers!
