Rub-a-Dub Sub - Linda Ashman

I have been really impressed with the author Linda Ashman as I have just discovered her books. Rub-a-Dub Sub captures the imagination of a child so well as this little boy plays in his bathtub. Dive deeper and deeper into the ocean, meeting lots of new sea creatures until, the fun rhyming leads to a shark which makes the little submarine zoom up to the surface past all of the creatures, back to the safety of his tub. The rhyming and rhythm is so much fun and the illustrations are very colorful and creative. I read this one several times with my kids today, they just loved it!
