A set of three board books uses rhyming verbs to describe the bathing, sleeping and eating habits of a fish, bug, bird, cat, dog, pig, mouse, whale, duck and baby. In Bedtimes, for example, "Fish stays / bug sways / bird nests / cat rests..."while in Bathtimes "Fish flips / bug dips / bird flicks / cat licks..."The same animals appear in each volume in exactly the same order making these high effective as a set, although each one could be enjoyed individually as well. (Ages 12 months-3 years)
