Summary: My 2 year old daughter loves it!
Comment: This book is so good! We have this one and the first one and my daughter (27 months) adores it! We read them over and over! Well, I should say sing! The pictures are a riot! And they're fun for adults too, it's nice to have some fresh songs in our repetoire that are funny and fun to sing! Great books!!

Summary: If you have the first, you need the second
Comment: If you liked "take me out of the bathtub" you'll like this one too. maybe not "read" on the same night as the first, but certainly both could go along on a car trip or a camping trip and you could get a lot of milage out of the two.


As a trained singer I've been shocked to hear "stop singing!" from my children. They NEVER say that about these songs, thankfully and will even sing along with me.

The lyrics are funny- and the illustrations fit the sprawling "kid look". It often helps to hum the "real" song before launching into the parody since the tune can often be wiped from memory- maybe it's fear when the melody sees what's going to be done to it. :-P

these songs are great fun for me and my kids. The cats even stick around for some rousing renditions.

Summary: What a riot!
Comment: Shades of Alan Sherman! Remember him? "Hello, Mudda. Hello, Fadda. Here I am at Camp Grenada..." My son loved his album as a kid and now my grandsons have Alan Katz! This book is a hoot. We bought it and then spent the next half-hour listening to an 8-year-old read/sing Katz's words to the tunes the boy has known since he was a baby: Take Me Out to the Ballgame, Frere Jacques, Bingo, Three Blind Mice, Old McDonald Had a Farm, The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round, and more. Before long, we were all laughing and humming along. Great Grandma said the illustrations were grotesque, but even she agreed they only added to the hilarity of the book. Put on your sense of humor, remember the kids' songs of your youth, and have a blast. You don't have to be a child to thoroughly enjoy this book!

Summary: Definitely Silly Dilly
Comment: My son picked this up at the book fair at his school. I have to say, that overall, we enjoyed it. It was fun to have a book to "sing" to, rather than just read to kids. They loved it! The illustrations are funny, and sometimes kinda gross and funky, but my boys love that.
There are 14 total songs to sing, to old tunes that we know and love. This is a great and engaging book, that will put a smile on any child's face. The words "silly dilly" are perfect for this book.

Summary: Toe-tapping verses that beg to be sung aloud
Comment: I'm Still Here In The Bathtub by Alan Katz is a delightful collection of "silly-dilly" poems, which can be sung to the tunes of classic childhood favorites. Extravagant caricature artwork by David Catrow adds a special touch to the toe-tapping verses that beg to be sung aloud, in this pleasant and humorous picture book. My Sister Fights With Me: My sister fights with me/We always disagree/And it's her fault!/She breaks my favorite stuff/She treats me mean and rough/I say, "I've had enough!"/Our mom yells halt!/So we act like we're friends/But soon the niceness ends/She starts to hiss/Taking things from my drawers/Making me do her chores/And worst of all, she snores/Please take my sis!
