Bears in the Bath
Random House, Inc.
Splish! Splash! Sploosh! The adorable stars of Bears on Chairs and Bears in Beds are back, and they’re ready for bath time. Or are they?

Water, soap, and sponge are there. The bath is ready. Where are the bears?

The four little bears are grimy, dirty, and covered in mud! But when they see the bath and Big Brown Bear ready to scrub, they back away. "We don’t want a bath," they say. Will those grungy bears ever get in the tub? Whether bath time’s a favorite time of day or a fraught one, this fun-to-read rhyming story and the silly antics of impossibly cute bears will make a splash with toddlers and parents alike.

Baker & Taylor
The endearing but grubby stars of Bears on Chairs and Bears in Beds resist Big Brown Bear's suggestion that they scrub themselves clean, in story complemented by lively, rhyming text. By the author of One Frog Sang.

One, two, three, four bears come walking in after a day of fun, and each is dirty from tail to the tip of their ears. Big Brown Bear wants them clean, but these young cubs have no wish to wash. Each is scooped up by their father, only to wiggle loose, leaving their dad covered in dirt too. So, there is only one answer, he jumps in the tub himself. The others soon follow. Bathtime becomes fun again in this cute rhyming scheme. Certainly this is the best use of rhyme within this series. Soft, fuzzy colours, create a cuddly feel against primarily plain white backgrounds. Plenty of bubbles, and bears await those who waited for this next installment.
