All animals bathe to keep their bodies clean and healthy. Humans might use soap and water, but what do animals, especially those living in dry climates, do to keep clean? Darcy Pattison and Kathleen Rietz team up again to explore the desert to find out how snakes, spiders, and birds bathe. This surprising book teaches children about hygiene and how some exciting desert creatures manage to stay clean without the help of soap and water.
If curious children ever question how animals of the desert bathe, the book Desert Baths is a good starting point for teaching them the different ways different desert animals get clean. In the Creative Minds section at the back of the book is more educational information that includes Desert Habitat Fun Facts, Desert Adaptations Matching, Deserts in North America, Telling Time By the Sun's Position, and more.
Desert Baths is a Fall 2012 release by Sylvan Dell Publishing.
