This review is from: There's an Elephant in My Bathtub (Paperback)
"There's an Elephant in My Bathtub" is the project result of a father-son creative team. Inspired by the overactive imagination of Andres, the youngest sibling in their family The Miramontes team takes charge of a fun cause, encouraging a child's creative imagination. Andres is a boy (with a big imagination) who has been ordered to take a bath before bedtime. Who could predict the jungle animals he encounters in his bathtub adventures? An elephant? An alligator? Monkeys? Luckily Andres has a mom who understands his need for creative imaginings, so the ending is happy for all concerned. Brightly colored black-outlined illustrations add to the charm and appeal of "There's an Elephant in My Bathtub" for young readers age 4 and up.
