Peep and Egg: I'm Not Taking a Bath

(4) PS Illustrated by Joyce Wan. Chick Peep must convince little chick Egg, caked in mud from playing with the pigs, to take a bath. Egg's initial reluctance ("too wet!"; "too splashy!"; etc.) will be familiar to young readers--and their caregivers--as will the playful solution (bath toys make all the difference). Despite this third Peep and Egg book's formulaic structure, Wan's thick-lined illustrations, featuring expressive farm animals, are preschooler-perfect.
