About this item

Baths are boring. Everything is more fun than baths. But when Livis mother hollers Bathtime!--a call readers and their parents are all familiar with--her imagination takes her on a journey full of daring obstacles and exciting events. She must battle a snake, rule the world, and escape quicksand, all while her mother waits with the bubbles ready. With delay tactics as creative as this, its a wonder she ever makes it all the way into the tub. Bringing together a picture book debut, author Sarah Maizes and illustrative veteran, Michael Paraskevas, this funny, fresh book will be a must for every parent who wants to foster creativity while fulfilling the every day necessities.,
