What a pleasure to see this book in print. I have watched it come to life from page one to the finish with the delightful story and the creative illustrations.
I love the way the words feel when you read it out loud. I believe that rhyming words are soothing to children and the special message will be handed to them very gently.
Your kids will be desperate to take their bath after reading this book! A humorous rhyme helps parents beautifully illustrate to their children the importance of daily hygiene through the powerful educating tool of fun.
Read what some very COOL people have said about this very COOL book!
When dirt is engrossing and clean is remote,
read this book with your kids and they'll surely take note.
Illustrations delightful, the rhyming sublime.
Fill their tubs with hot water; they'll giggle,
"No more grime!"
Linda Carney's book is a "neat" read from beginning to end.

Charming! I've Been Dirty and I've Been Clean and Clean is Better (You Know What I Mean?) is a delightful read with wonderful and creative illustrations. Children who have this book read to them will definitely pick it up later to read on their own... over and over.

As a child, one of my favorite books was Harry the Dirty Dog. Now, Linda Carney's I've Been Dirty and I've Been Clean and Clean is Better (You Know What I Mean?) can take its proud place beside Harry on my daughter's bookshelf.
