Trivia to Know About This Book

  • What would you say is the primary message of [this book]?

    What I wanted to show in this board book is the similarity between humans and animals. I show in the book that animals take different kinds of baths; the last page shows the sweet surprise of a human baby taking a bubble bath.

  • What was the hardest part about creating [this book]?

    I know quite a bit about animals, but after accepting the book, my editor wanted absolute verification of when a specific baby animal started to clean itself and what a specific baby animal is called. Even animal specialists I spoke with weren’t certain about the first and there were differences of opinions about the second. It was challenging research, but I love how the book came out.
