This one is a cute story that offers lessons on showing kindness to others, sharing, and conquering your fears. Lots of humor and illustrations that the kids love.
The book started out with Splat dreaming of candy fish. He tries to get them and that is about the time his mom wakes him up. Splat is told to go take a bath and cleanup for school, and after he got caught trying to skip the bath, his mom makes him get in the tub. This is where we first find out Splat doesn’t like the water, he in fact is afraid of it. While in the bath, Splat’s mom shocks him with the announcement that today he is going to learn to swim at school. Before Splat could react t [...]
Splat doesn’t like Spike—he eats all his candy fish and plays with his toys until they break—and he also doesn’t like water—it’s scary, wet and makes him soggy. Splat is not happy when he has to have a play date with Spike and learn to swim on the same day. However, things turns out to the better when Splat and Spike bond over their fear of water and learn to get over it together and eventually become friends. The illustrations are made in mixed media. They are quirky and fun and mat [...]
I've never been a huge fan of Splat the Cat, but our girls love these books. The cat is adorable and the stories have some innocent charm, but I was frustrated by the seemingly vapid churning out of books in order to capitalize on a popular character. There have been eight books published in the last year or so and many of them weren't even written by Rob Scotton. I was not impressed.But when we borrowed this book from the library, I was pleasantly surprised to see Mr. Scotton as the true author [...]
Splat's day from the beginning was not turning out good. From having a bath, as he hates water to a play date after school with Spike who teases him and does everything better than him. Splat's day gets worse when he is told he will have to go swimming. Everyone else goes into the pool one by one but Spike and Splat are left. Spike keeps making excuses to why he hasn't gone into the pool yet. Splat finally admits he hates water and he is scared and finally Spike admits he is just as scared. Howe [...]
My first Splat book, and not at all what I expected. Story at the beginning: this is rather cute. Story by the end: that was too "cutesy" for my taste. It was good enough for three stars, but even my seven-year old was bored by the middle of it. He walked away. It leaves me wondering if I'll try any other Splat books.
It was great. Splat is a cat. And he hates taking baths, he doesn't like getting wet or soggy. But then he takes swimming lessons. He is the last one in. He dreams of gummy-fish. At the end he likes the water.I like the pictures because they were cool. I like them because they were nice. The gummy bears were funny.
I love all the Splat books! I love the Illustrations as well! Splat overcame his fear of water/swimming. You can do a writing activity where the students can write or draw a picture about a fear they overcame.
Splat hates baths and now he has to learn to swim. Oh the horror. Plus his mom has arranged a play date with Spike. But spike is mean, will eat all Splat’s candy, and break all Splat’s toys. Maybe these two water fearing cats can find common ground.

Adorable illustrations and a nice lesson about feeling fearful. My 4 yo. likes the Splat stories and they always spark discussion, which is a win in my book!
Another great read about Splat, we loved it!!
Splat the cat is having a wonderful dream about candy fish when his mother wakes him up for school. “Spike is coming over today after school” his mother tells him, Splat is not happy about that, him and Spike don’t really get along. Before Splat could head off to school his mother tells him to take a bath, but he hates water! It makes him soggy! Then, to make his day even worse, his mother reminds him that he will be having his first swim lesson at school that day. Splat and his little mou [...]
Things Splat doesn't like:~Spike (who breaks his toys and eats all the candy fish)~Water (Baths are horrible! How will he survive swimming lessons?)Splat's dislikes come together in the swimming pool. It turns out that Splat does like Spike and swimming.What I thought: Cute! I haven't read any of the other Splat books, but I will be. He's a great character. This would actually pair well with Rock 'n' Roll Mole as both Mole and Splat dislike or fear something. The illustrations are bright and col [...]
Review:Splat is a great character. Splish Splash Splat is a great example of alleration, not just with 's' words but also with 'spl' words for an advanced age group. This story is great for a dicussion on real life experiences. for example, bathing, swimming and being a good friend. The illutrations in the story are detailed and colorful. The story is definitely silly and children love silly. I would use this story to discuss friendship or bath time routines. The story has rich vocabulary.Learni [...]
Splat the cat is having a rough day as he doesn't like water and his mom informs him that he will be learning to swim at school that day. She also lets him know that his friend will be coming over to play and he is not a huge fan of Spike. At the pool, Splat and Spike both discover that they both dislike the water very much. They seem to get over their differences and become better friends. The book is cute and fun. The underlying theme seems to be that you never know what you have in common wit [...]
Great book to read to kids who are having anxiety or fear over something. Splat and Spike are foes, Spike breaks Splat's toys and eats his candy. Splat has to go swimming in gym class and is afraid of the water because he doesn't know how to swim and he thinks kids are going to make fun of him. Spike starts to make fun of him, but Splat soon realizes that Spike is afraid of the water too. They both jump in together and overcome their fear and Splat realizes he's not the only one who gets afraid. [...]
Splat the Cat is one of my all-time favorite characters. He is a character that so many children (kindergarteners) can relate to. In this particular book, he is afraid to go swimming in the pool because he does not like water. All of his "daily routine activities" reminds me so much of what my students do on a regular basis. Also, his friend Spike does so many things to bother him; but, everything works out at the end of the book just like it does as a 5-6 year old's day!
Cats don't like water, so when Splat has to take a bath AND a swimming lesson on the same day, it's all to muchus he has to deal with Spike, who eats all his candy mice and breaks his toys. It's a rough day for Splat. It's all down hill when he realizes that he forgot his swim trunks as well. What else can go eps tong? Spike is in his swim classat's what! See what else happens in this funny fuzzy book about Splat the cat, by Rob Scotton who never fails to amuse!
Rob Scotton, please marry me.This was a book about my little buddy Splat, who does not want to go to swimming lessons (since he's a cat) and he does not want Spike to come over (because he's a bully).I love the illustrations in these books so much. They are so expressive and detailed, and the kids love looking at them without me prompting them. The writing is fantastic too.I hope there are a million more Splat books!!
"Water is horrible. It's scary and wet and makes me soggy."The day is not looking promising for Splat. First, he has to take a bath. Then his mom informs him that Spike is coming over after school, which is bad enough, because Spike breaks his toys and makes fun of him. Then Spike finds out that they are doing swimming lessons at school. Even worse. I love books in the Splat series, and kids do too. Very cute book with a positive message!
Splat is told by his mother that it is swimming day at Cat School. Splat complains that he DOES NOT LIKE water.Splat and his on again/off again friend Spike end up being the 2 cats who don't like swimming and are the last to get into the pool.Splat helps Spike with the aid of a candy fish and they both have a successful day at the pool.Chosen by Sean at the Huntsville Public Library. We read it together in July, 2013.
I loved this book about Splat the Cat! Splat is not a fan of water. It is wet and makes him soggy. When his mom announces that his Cat Class is going to be going swimming, Splat is not happy. Splat soon finds out that he's not alone in his dislike for water and it's from someone he never expected. This is my favorite Splat book by far!
I bought this for the student I'm working with for my practice Reading Specialist testing. I needed a picture story book that satisfied some requirements, so I decided on this one and gave it to him when we were done. It's really cute and he ended up giggling at the end. I love the pictures and the facial expressions the cats make.
I can't help it I like Splat. His name is fun to say.So is Mrs. Wimpydimple's.In this one Splat and Spike find out they have something unexpected in common something I'm sure quite a few kids have also experienced.If you go to B&N's online storytime Molly Ringwald will read it to you. She did pretty well with some of the "s" alliteration.
Splat the cat was worried his day was going to be the worst day ever. First he had to take a terrible bath. He had his first swim lesson and water = scary and wet no fun. And worse yet his "friend" Spike was coming over and he always makes fun of splat, eats all his candy and breaks his toys. Is their any saving this awful day???
My son's water philosophy is the opposite of that of Splat. This is important because reading this book led to my son, who is Autistic, asking why Splat doesn't like water and "what is horrible?" The illustration, especially the facial expressions, are great for helping him learn to gauge emotions, which is a challenge. Great series. Hope is continues for a while.
I just love Splat! In Splish Splash Splat, Splat is having the worst day ever. He does not want to take a bath, then he finds out that Spike is coming over after school. And, then, he finds out that he starts swimming lessons at school! What cat loves the water? The illustrations are perfect! I love how Splat looks all wet in the pool!
Splat dreads having Spike over after school because Spike bullies Splat and breaks his toys. But at school, it is swimming lesson day and both cats are scared of the water, giving them a bond that brings them closer.
