Twenty-seven humorous vignettes are cleverly captioned illustrations designed to help parents and kids cope with the challenges of toilet training. Toddlers will laugh when they see Mark picking out a potty at the toy store. And back at home, Toby didn’t quite make it to the potty this time. He’ll have better luck next time. Jordon waits till the last minute too-but hooray! We see him in the bathroom, and we know he made it on time. Alison is proud because she uses a grown-up toilet, and Amanda reads a picture book when she sits on her potty. Neither parents nor children need to take potty training too seriously, because sooner or later, everything works out just fine. That’s the message at the heart of Bob McGrath’s cheerful book-and boys and girls will enjoy seeing their own potty experiences repeated on these pages. Ages 2 and up.
