Bathing

Liesbet Slegers. Clavis, $5.95 (12p) ISBN 978-1-60537-092-7

A smiling toddler makes bath time seem easy and fun in this warm board book: "These are my clothes. Look, I am taking off all my clothes! I am ready for a bath now," he explains. He uses his orange washcloth, happily lets his mother shampoo his hair, and sails his red boat in the bathwater, finishing up with a cuddly towel. Slegers's characteristically bright, smudgy paintings convey a common experience with a light, appealing touch. Available simultaneously: Playing. Up to age 3. (May)
