This story is about the youngest member of the Miramontes family. Andres is a very creative little boy that uses his imagination to take us along his "bath time" journey. With his vivid imagination, Andres injects fun into his "pretend story" by introducing wild animals to cope with his fear of taking a bath. Art & Arturo take the young readers on a fun yet imaginative adventure that all parents can appreciate.
"Imagination fosters a child's creativity..." This type of creativity allows children to reach out and explore the unbelievable. In this passage, Andres prepares for his bath to discover a big surprise!
"I enter the bathroom imagining the worst."
"There's an elephant in my bathtub...! I yell with a burst."
As the story continues, Andres finds himself more creative with his imagination.
This book is designed to be a "read along" book so parents can help their children develop good reading habits. But, more importantly, is to devote and encourage quality family time for all.
