"On My Way to the Bath" by Sarah Maizes, Illustrated by Michael Paraskevas
Oh this book is so much fun! It's time for Livi's bath, but her imagination runs amok and she keeps getting distracted on her way to the tub. Sarah Maizes perfectly captures how difficult it can be to get a child from point A to point B when they are far to busy having fun. Michael Paraskevas' illustrations are very cute and match the text perfectly. The book is told from Livi's point of view with speech bubbles coming from another room each time her mom calls her to the tub (meaning it's an excellent book to practice some voice work since, as the reader, you get to be both Livi and her mom). I had so much fun reading this book. It is very cute and sweet. It is definitely worth reading over and over and is likely to become a family favorite!
