Bathe the Cat

Cover: 'Bathe the Cat'

Staff Review: "Bathe the Cat" by Alice B. McGinty, David Roberts


This new picture book captured my attention by the bright cover and title that made clear it'd be an entertaining read (because every cat owner knows most of them definitely do not want to be bathed!) Inside, we meet a family who's just realized Grandma is on her way, and the house is a mess. Chaos ensues as chores are dished out, and when the cat sees a bath for them is on the list, the list must be changed! What follows is a fun rhyming adventure while the family tries to get the house ready for their visitor. Will the cat avoid the bath? You'll have to read to find out! 

This new picture has it all: humor, rhyming, bright colors, and representation of a beautiful family with two dads. I loved it!

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book
