The pictures in this book are phenomenal! They really bring the book to life and make the book what it is. It tells of a stubborn king that refuses to get out of the bathtub to tend to his duties. Children love seeing what silly things King Bidgood is doing in the bathtub. After reading the story aloud, the class will compose a list of ways that they would entice the king out of the tub by thinking about what would make them get out of the bathtub. For example, mine would be, "Katie said, 'I made a giant plate of chocolate chip cookies!" Students will then write it down on construction paper. They will draw themselves in the bathtub with cotton balls as bubbles. They will also draw whatever will entice them out in the background. This will help children be creative and enhance their writing skills.
