Today we will read the story 101 Reasons I’m Not Taking a Bath by Stacy McAnulty. This boys thinks of all the reasons why he doesn’t need to take a bath, but in the end… he takes one and enjoys it.
This is a fun book to read with your child. Can (s)he think of other crazy reasons not to take a bath?
This book format makes an excellent opportunity for a re-write. Have your child think about something else they never want to do: go to bed, brush their teeth, take out the trash, clean their room…. whatever. Now have your child think of all the excuses they could use to get out of this activity. In the end, have them do it! hahaha they never really get out of doing the things they make excuses for not doing.
