The Fish is Me: Bathtime Rhymes

Neil Philip. Clarion Books, $16 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-618-15939-0

Readers rub-a-dub-dub with The Fish Is Me: Bathtime Rhymes, selected by Neil Philip, illus. by Claire Henley. The squeaky clean volume contains works by the likes of Douglas Florian and Carl Sandburg, as well as traditional ditties (to wit: ""Miss Susie had a baby,/ His name was Tiny Tim,/ She put him in the bathtub/ To see if he could swim""). Henley's mix of spot art and full-bleed paintings of happy, soaking-wet youngsters make bathtime look fun.
