164. “The Dirty Little Boy” by Margaret Wise Brown

This one must have been written PURELY for laughs…

A little boy wanted to wash off the jam from his face and chocolate from his knee, so we asked his “big, round mother” to give him a bath. She was busy doing laundry so she asked her son to go outside and learn how to get cleaned from the animals. And so the boy did. He saw a bird splashing in a puddle, so he wanted to try that method too. Then he saw pigs rolling in mud. oh, how fun. Now, how to get that dirt off? Perhaps the way a cat does it?  Or brushing it off like a horse. Finally, the boy dirtier than ever went back to his “big round mother”, who gave him a big, soapy bath.

Purely delightful! Sheer pleasure! Margaret Wise Brown and Steven Salerno, the illustrator, have created real bubbles with this feel-great story for all ages.
