My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy.

There’s a Giraffe in my Bath is for young children. It has cute, colorful pictures that will keep the attention of youngsters. It also has rhyming verse about a child’s toys having difficulties at bath time. It’s a fun story to read!

I look forward to reading There’s a Giraffe in my Bath to my grandson as soon as he’s old enough. It says it’s recommended for ages 3 to 6 but I think children as young as 2 years old would like this because it’s short with good illustrations.

About the Author

Louise Andrews is a mum to two young boys, whose love for taking all manner of toys in to the bath inspired this story. This is the first book written by the author, who particularly enjoys creating rhyming stories for her children. What started as simple stories to entertain her children has become a passion for creating exciting stories for children everywhere.

The great news is that there’s more to come from Louise. There’s a Giraffe in my Bath has sparked the imagination and led to another children’s book which is currently being written, with more ideas for future books too.

Louise has always had a love of books and still finds time to read all types of fiction. Her favourite authors include; Jodi Taylor, JK Rowling, Maeve Binchy, Katherine Arden, Ben Arronovitch, Jill Mansell and Daphne Du Maurier. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is Louise’s favourite book.

With two boys to look after (3 if you include the husband!), spare time is at a premium. But when she finds time, Louise enjoys exercise classes, discovering new box sets to binge on, music, cooking (and eating!) and, of course, reading and writing books.
