This brief bath time tale is ideal for preschool through first grade readers. Little Dini Dinosaur loves to play and make messes. After dumping a bucket of mud on his head, it is time for Dini to hit the bathtub. However, poor little Dini just cannot remember to remove all of his clothes and take a bath the right way. After all, you can’t wear your socks if you want to scrub your feet! Mom has to keep reminding him that it is “back you go” so that Dini can “scrub-a-dub-dub” in the tub. The brightly colored illustrations are charming and the rhyming is fun. Young readers will relate to Dini’s struggles in the tub. Although Dini is eager to take a bath, this story could be used to help encourage those reluctant bathers out there.
