Mrs. Wishy-Washy washes all the dirty animals around the farm but they love mud so they end up back in the mud anyway.

Mrs. Wishy-Washy is about a bunch of farm animals that keep getting dirty even after they take a bath.

I liked this book because of the humor and it is relatable to many kids. I would use this in my teaching to have a fun, humorous book to read to my students.

The age group this is appropriate for would be 4-8 years old. The theme is that you can always have fun in life.

The purpose of this book is it is a silly book that is an introduction to reading for young children. It has familiar animals that are being mischievous. The entertaining animals and Mrs. Wishy Washy engages them in the story. The simple, repetitive words make it easier for children to read. ( )

This book is about Mrs. Wishy Washy and her muddy barnyard friends. They roll in the mud, get cleaned, and then decide to go back to the mud. This is a great book for children because it has repetition, child appeal, a known sequence, and rhythm. The grade level would be pre k through first grade.

Mrs. Wishy Washy is about an old lady who has farm animals. All the animals get dirty in mud so she washes them. After that they get all dirty again. I would use this book only if i had really young students. Ages- K-1 ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399233911, Board book)

Cow, Pig, and Duck are playing in the mud, when along comes Mrs. Wishy-Washy. "Oh lovely mud," think the three friends. But Mrs. Wishy-Washy says, "Just LOOK at you!" and washes them clean: wishy-washy, wishy-washy.

But what do you think happens the moment Mrs. Wishy-Washy turns her back on this mud-loving trio? Better have a scrub brush ready!

Children around the world have laughed at the fastidious Mrs. Wishy-Washy as they first discover the joy of reading. A perfect introduction to the delightful storytelling of Joy Cowley.
