No Baths at Camp by Tamar Fox, Illustrated by Natalia Vasquez

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

Max’s mother tells him that it is bath time and he expresses his desire to be back at camp, since there are no baths at camp. His mother can’t believe it so Max tells her what they do during each day of the entire week that they are at camp. He explains to her how dirty they get with each activity that they participate in and they still don’t takes baths. He gives many examples of how they get clean when they are at camp and none of those ways involve taking a bath. 

This book shows how fun a week of camp can be for children. It does a great job of explaining what kinds of activities they participate with at camp, such as singing, climbing, art, etc. and that there are fun ways to get clean when they get dirty, such as rinsing off with a water hose. Honoring the Sabbath by refraining from participating in activities is also focused on. Max’s mom does a good job of reminding him of the activities he participates with at home also but he reminds her that there are no baths at camp and that makes a HUGE difference to him. 

Created for children ages 3-8, grades PreK-3
