When four toy animals come to life, they become unlikely friends. The toys try to help each other out in a fun bath time adventure. But they might just need some extra help..! There’s A Giraffe In My Bath! is the first story for children between the ages of 3 and 6 by Louise Andrews. Illustrations are by Nick Roberts.
This is an adventure that’s told in rhyme
Involving four toy animals at bath time.
The animals all come to life as giraffe falls in
And the others all hope to help save him.
However, it isn’t that easy to get him out and so
The bath time adventure starts and off they go!
Beautifully illustrated this story is great
With fun, adventure and helpful mates.
Children’s stories that are told in rhyme
Are winners for me almost every time.
This one is colourful, fun and bright
A great one to read by day or at night!
I have no hesitation in highly recommending this book
For sharing with children big and small – go have a look!
Louise Andrews is a mum to two young boys, whose love for taking all manner of toys in to the bath inspired this story. This is the first book written by the author, who particularly enjoys creating rhyming stories for her children. What started as simple stories to entertain her children has become a passion for creating exciting stories for children everywhere.
The great news is that there’s more to come from Louise. There’s a Giraffe in my Bath has sparked the imagination and led to another children’s book which is currently being written, with more ideas for future books too.
Louise has always had a love of books and still finds time to read all types of fiction. Her favourite authors include; Jodi Taylor, JK Rowling, Maeve Binchy, Katherine Arden, Ben Arronovitch, Jill Mansell and Daphne Du Maurier. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is Louise’s favourite book.
With two boys to look after (3 if you include the husband!), spare time is at a premium. But when she finds time, Louise enjoys exercise classes, discovering new box sets to binge on, music, cooking (and eating!) and, of course, reading and writing books.
