Twin brothers, Tic and Tac, were extremely bored. They have already done everything that the town had to offer. Reading. Building. Fishing. Ma Badger asked if they wanted to help with laundry, so they did. Ma Badger had to leave to go to the marker, and Tic and Tac stayed to finish laundry for Ma. Then, they decided it was fun, so they hung everything up that wasn't nailed down. ( )

The 2017 picture book centered around two bored badgers
provide certain elements of humor and growth. I enjoyed how the book provides a joyful injection of comedy into a mundane chore such as doing laundry, I enjoyed it but don’t believe it standouts particularly and feel like the text was lacking a better introduction into main plot or a little more plot

Two badgers that are bored and try to find something to do. Their mother offers them many options and they have done all of them. They end up helping hang the laundry... and everything else in the house!

Tic and Tac were two bored badgers. Having exhausted all of their own play ideas, they turned to their busy mother for inspirations, and after rejecting any number of ideas - building forts, fishing, etc. - they jumped on her suggestion that they help her by hanging up their laundry. Discovering to their surprise that they really enjoy this activity, these badger brothers decide to go one better, and find some more things that need hanging up...

An amusing tale of two meline brothers and their misadventure "helping" their mother with one of her daily chores, Laundry Day is the third picture-book from talented author/artist Jessixa Bagley, following upon her Boats for Papa and Before I Leave. Although not as touching as those earlier titles, which addressed the loss of a parent, and the experience of moving away from a friend, the story here is fun and engaging, offering a fairly realistic depiction of two energetic youngsters and the trouble they inadvertently get into. The artwork, done in pen and watercolor, is quite appealing, capturing Tic and Tac's mischievous antics perfectly. Recommended to anyone looking for new picture-books featuring fun stories about children (or badgers) getting into mischief. ( )
