Title: Pirates Don't Take Baths Author and Illustrator: John Segal Publisher: Philomel (March 3, 2011) Format: Hardcover; Pgs 32 Genre: Children's Source: Library Ages: 3 and up
You have to be a crafty mom to outwit a little pig that does not want to take a bath. Momma is up for this challenge. Each time her son tries on a new persona she is right there with plausible reasoning on why her son might not want to be a pirate or cowboy or an astronaut.
That is until she outfoxes her little man by letting him believe that he is right and that underwater treasure hunters do not need to take baths.
This is a perfect book for parents to keep at hand when bath time becomes an issue.
