Publisher Summary

Getting ready for sleep is tons of fun in this Sandra Boynton classic.

The sun has set not long ago. Now everybody goes below to take a bath in one big tub with soap all over—SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB!

This classic bedtime story is just right for winding down the day as a joyful, silly group of animals scrub scrub scrub in the tub, brush and brush and brush their teeth, and finally rock and rock and rock to sleep.

I read this story to my children when they were small. I have given it as a baby gift many times. And I am so happy when my grandson chooses this book! I still have it memorized, 20 years later and quote from it when the opportunity arises. This is not one of your sleepy bedtime stories; Sandra Boynton’s charming animal cast cycle through their bedtime preparation activities in rhyming couplets with vim and vigor. Much like the toddler here: it is all bump and go until absolute exhaustion sets in.

Lots of bedtime stories are kind of slow and sweet. This one is lots of fun. The rhymes are great as it goes through a (semi) normal bedtime routine, with a little bit of wit and humor. We like reading this before bedtime.
