Splish Splash


Praise for Splish Splash…

Sarah Weeks‘ tale of a fish named Chub and his wonderful big tub told in rhyme with colorful illustrations. Who would have thought that a bath could hold a fish, a cat, a bull, a snail, a giraffe, a snake and more? But in they all go, with a tiny bug the last one to find a spot. Repeated throughout is the refrain, “And they splish/and they splash,/and they splash/and they splish.” Ashley Wolff’s silly illustrations show all the familiar tub-time accessories children love from rubber duckies to bubbles galore. A cat in a shower cap and a snake in an inflatable tube are just some of the amusing characters squeezing into this communal tub. The words are all simple and familiar, and the story is engaging, making it a good choice for beginning readers.
