Rudie Nudie…Book Giveaway

rudie nudie

rudie nudie 

The best remedy for defusing the arsenic hour blues in my house is bathtime.

I love it.

Bath time is laugh time.

The bubbles and the giggles are exactly what are needed to wash away those soul-sapping dinner time tantrums and settle little ones ready for bed.

In this stunning new picture book, ‘Nudie Rudie,’  award winning author and illustrator Emma Quay  captures those magical moments between bathtime and bedtime.

Through a combination of charming illustrations and simple but evocative rhyming text, the joy and innocence of childhood ‘rudie nudie’ moments are celebrated.

I particularly love how Quay is able to explore, through images and words, the different tactile surfaces the children explore, from the wet mat beside the bath, to the bristly doormat, and the tickle of leaves on bare skin.

The beautiful pastel colours and charcoal drawings are a wonderful accompaniment for bedtime reading.  They suit the theme perfectly, and are not too stimulating whilst still managing to be engaging.

This book is a winner is my house!  My children love it, and soon-to-be-too Bubble is convinced that the little girl in the book is her.

Here is a little peek preview…







Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
