When Leanne complains that bath time is boring, her father has the great idea to bring her a sea turtle as a companion. As her father has more excellent, fabulous, and spectacular ideas, the bathtub soon overflows with sea creatures. Leanne resolves the problem with an extraordinary idea of her own.
Leanne's bath time is boring. It's annoying. It's a pain. Luckily, her father has some excellent, terrific, and spectacular ideas to make it more interesting. He runs down to the sea and brings back one turtle. Then two eels. Then three clown fish. Soon Leanne's bath time is fun! It's amusing! It's exciting! But when the ten octopi arrive, could it be too much of a good thing?Translated from Andrée Poulin’s lively text, Going for a Sea Bath combines the best of a bath time book and a seashore book with a father-daughter adventure that will inspire giggles all around. Anne-Claire Delisle's whimsical art is delightfully expressive, blending the everyday details of bath time with a fantastical effusion of smiling sea creatures, a charmingly silly father, and one little girl who will never complain about boring bath times again.

Readers will surely giggle as sea creatures are piled into the little girl's bathtub, making this a fun counting and guessing game. Which animal will come next? How many? Kids will also giggle at her nakedness, which is cleverly covered by the animals that join her in her silly sea bath.

"Counting" stories can be very boring, but this one has fun rhyming text and interesting illustrations.
