Bathtime is Jack’s favourite part of the day.

‘I’ll be back in a few moments,’ says his mom.

‘Make sure to clean behind your ears.’

There’s a SWOOSH

And a swish of a tail

And then…

Jack’s bathtub safari begins! (on a Crocodile!)

Look at what’s coming!

There’s a twist and a turn…

Something’s growing…

It’s a…

T o o o t ! (An Elephant!)

There’s a RUMBLE!



It’s going up


Splash! (a Giraffe!)

There’s a SPLOSH.

Something bubbles.

It’s time to…

sigh AAAAAAH (a Hippo)

But something’s lurking in the background…

Roar! (a Lion!)

‘Time to get out.’ says Mum.

I hope you’re clean and ready for bed?
