How to Give Your Cat a Bath: In Five Easy Steps
Written by Nicola Winstanley
Illustrated by John Martz
How hard can it be to bathe a cat?
How to Give Your Cat a Bath by Nicola Winstanley and John Martz, hilariously, gives us the answer. In this story, a young girl follows the instructions of a bossy narrator while attempting to give her pet cat, Mr. Flea, his bath. Mr. Flea, as most parents are probably aware, really isn’t interested.
Humor drives the story along with its deceptively simple illustrations and delightful interactions between the protagonist and her feline. I dare parents not to laugh out loud while trying to read this to their little ones. It is also a great book for beginner readers as each page has minimal text. Families who enjoy the “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” series by Laura Numeroff will really enjoy this as well.
