Description

Swish Slosh follows the onomatopoeic escapades of a young child and their dog as they delight in the tactile joy of getting messy. This toddler-friendly book is composed entirely of sounds and adults and children alike will delight in a sweet story that calls to be read aloud with joyful emphasis and humorous inflection. Woosh swoosh slosh splosh— readers will romp through a day at the beach, enjoy a sweet treat and noisily make their way through bedtime routine in this vibrant board book conceptualized and written by award-winning author Deborah Kerbel and illustrated by artist Jacqui Lee.
