No Bath Tonight

My son Adam was accident prone as a child, his brother Jason hated to take baths. I combined the two of them into Jeremy the star of this picture book. When Grandma comes and manages to get Jeremy into the tub by reading his “kid leaves” I realized that here was the grandmother I wanted to be some day! The illustrations are pert and perfect. Both Weekly Reader Children’s Book Club and the Junior Literary Guild took the book.
