About The Book: I’m Terrified of Bath Time

A hilarious and clever bath-time picture book by humorist, novelist, and TV writer Simon Rich, with illustrations by Tom Toro (How to Potty Train Your Porcupine).
And so begins a hilarious dip into the choppy waters of a nightly ritual that parents and children alike often dread. Filled with soapsuds, rubber duckies, and existential angst, Simon Rich’s debut picture book is a splashy tale of cleanliness—and survival. This irreverent read-aloud treat about facing fear and embracing adventure might just change the way you see bath time (and your bathroom) forever.

Fantastic Reviews

“A visual (and comedic) feast for budding smart-alecks.”Patton Oswalt

“Along with offering a bit of bathroom behavior modification, this is, undeniably, storytime gold for young audiences large or small.”―Booklist

“This delightful picture book turns the widespread phenomenon of toddler bathtime fears on its head…The book’s skillfully crafted storyline will appeal to children as well as adults working to avoid meltdowns when little ones have a wash. … A refreshing, amusing approach to overcoming ablutophobia in small children.” ―Kirkus

Because you need to see more of this book…

This imaginative approach to bath time is simply genius. The author grabs the child’s fear and transfers it to the bathtub. The illustrations transform everyday bathroom fixtures into works of hilarious fun. This book won’t be going down the drain anytime soon. – Kim Wilch, One More Exclamation
