Henry's Bath by Margaret Perversi, illustrated by Ron Brooks follows Henry's refusal to take a bath until his mother suggests giving the animals a bath instead.

Brooks' detailed illustrations add humor. The helpful Teddy Bear is amusing. Browns, greens and yellows predominate. My favorite images are I won't, cat, dog, hens, goat, yo ducks, and last picture. Perversi's text uses a large font and some repetition.

This Australian import will please some but make others uncomfortable with an outside
I was kid that LIKED to take baths. It was like a mini hot tub, so fighting to take a bath is foreign to me! But Henry's bath is fun book, and might help your little one want to take a bath. The pictures aren't impressive, as they are brown and yellow but SO IS MUD! I think it was a good book and easy to read!
Cute, simple story about a child who's not too sure he really wants a bath. Good choice for a bath storytime.
Now my son wants me to buy an old bath-tub to put in our backyard!! Fun...
Pushed it past the line with the pictures.
