Have a child who doesn’t like sleeping alone? Or balks at taking a bath? A pair of child-friendly picture books offers knowing reassurance.
It may be Henry’s bath time, but Henry has other ideas. What if he gives the cat a bath instead? Would the hens or the goat or the cow like to take his place in the tub full of toys? Then, when Henry sees that the bath is warm and bubbly and all set to go, he’s ready to hop in himself, encouraging reluctant little bathers to follow suit.
