 Tubby/ Bañito by Leslie Patricelli, Translation by Georgina Lazaro, Candlewick, 2017. 9780763693169

Format: Board book

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5

What did you like about the book? Leslie Patricelli’s bilingual board book, in English and Spanish, is a hit for the littlest readers. The naive art style of illustration, done in vibrant acrylic colors, is very appealing. The process, worries, and joys of bath time are covered through sentences and words, covering sounds, exclamations and expressions in both languages. I like that both parents are involved in the event!

To whom would you recommend this book?  This belongs in all board book collections, as bath time is a universal event.

Who should buy this book? Day cares, preschools and public libraries

Where would you shelve it ? Board books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
