Smells Like Bath Time!


Must read 🏆

An adorable, fun, and light-hearted story that young children will enjoy

Smells Like Bath Time! is a super adorable, fun, and light-hearted story that young children will enjoy reading.

Join Molly and her siblings as they have fun playing outside and getting dirty. From digging dirt to rolling in smelly plants, they love it. But, Mama notices how dirty and smelly they are and tells them it's bath time! Molly and Zozo run away and hide. Miss Mia and Momo don't mind taking a bath so they happily go in.

Molly and Zozo see how much fun their sisters are having and wonder if they should join in.

I really enjoyed reading this story and so did my two year old. The characters are super cute. The story and writing is very simple and easy to read. The story has a great flow from beginning to end. You can read over and over again.

Even though the story is about dogs, I know there are kids who don't like bath time, especially when they are younger. This can show them how fun bath time from playing with bubbles to being wrapped in a soft blanket to looking sparkly clean in the end.

I am a fan of Papa & Paws stories. They each have a lesson applicable to young children and the use of animals (dogs) is always appealing to this group.

Look forward to more stories by this author.

Highly recommend!

Today, Molly and her sisters are having so much fun exploring the smells in the yard. Not everyone is ready for the tub when Mama finds out how dirty they are. Molly and Zozo hide while Momo and Miss Mia settle in with suds and squeaky toys. Can bath time be just as fun as playing in the yard?

Based on the real-life adventures of a sweet little doggie named Molly Paws and her family.

This book features full-color illustrations of cute doggies throughout and is perfect for:
Children ages 0-5(ish) who love stories and pictures of dogs.
Moms, dads, and grandparents who read to their kids and grandkids.
Big brothers and big sisters who enjoy reading to their younger siblings.
