Small Elephant's Bathtime

Publisher: OUP

Small Elephant loves water to drink or splash, but he doesn't like getting into his bath. His mummy tries to tempt him with bath toys and bubbles, but Small Elephant is not fooled. He just gets cross and hides. Mummy is at her wit's end, so she calls in Daddy Elephant.

Daddy climbs into the little bath and he looks so silly there that he makes Small Elephant laugh. He tells his dad to get out and now Small Elephant is happy to get in.

In fact, he loves his bath so much mummy now has trouble getting him out of it!

A common cause for a toddler tantrum is averted with humour and understanding. Simple clear illustrations.
