School Library Journal - 11/01/2017 Toddler-PreS—Older sister Peep sees little sister Egg in the mud and insists she take a bath. Egg refuses. Peep offers a number of solutions like "How about a quick dip in the dog's water bowl?" Egg counters each idea. "Too slobbery! I'm not taking a bath." Peep then announces "Okay, I guess you are not taking a bath today." She will take a bath by herself with all the wonderful bath toys. Of course Egg follows her sister to a friend-filled lake and then doesn't want to get out. The story isn't groundbreaking, but the language is clear and uses repetition well. The cartoonish, emojilike illustrations are bright and simple with thick lines and flat colors. VERDICT A solid addition to libraries looking to add a toddler-friendly bath book or complete their "Peep and Egg" collection.—Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
