From the author of the worldwide bestseller Tickle My Ears, comes an award-winning, interactive boardbook about bathtime.
Who enjoys having their ears washed? Little Rabbit doesn’t like the idea, but it turns out to be not so bad after all. But he does need your young reader’s help. When the blow-dryer breaks, we must blow his ears dry. Wfffff! Keep blowing! Now wrap him in the towel and bathtime is over. Squeaky clean, Little Rabbit!
Jörg Mühle has created another sweet and simple bunny boardbook that invites children to take charge of bathtime with fun activities on every page. Children can help turn on the shower, cover Little Rabbit’s eyes, wipe the water off his nose. Fun for everyone: babies and toddlers, parents and bunnies!
Designed to be read aloud, this tried-and-true, surprising book will get young children excited about bathtime. Teaching toddlers and preschoolers about bathtime routines, it also makes a perfect baby shower or infant birthday gift. Adults never tire of their child’s enthusiastic washing and wfffing!
Jörg Mühle was born 1973 in Frankfurt am Main and studied at the Offenbach School of Design and the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Today, he lives in Frankfurt where he works as a freelance illustrator for book publishers, magazines and newspapers.
