Adorable Angus the Answer Dog cheerfully and respectfully guides young children through the exciting, sometimes daunting experience of potty training. An ideal read-aloud book for children who are on the verge of transitioning from diapers to big-kid underpants, this matter-of-fact book explains the process naturally and calmly. Each two-page spread asks a question: “Where do pee-pee and poop come from?” “What’s a potty?” “How do I know when to go to the potty?” “Why do I have to wash my hands?”and more, each question anticipating the next. Angus answers these queries with clarity, sensitivity, and attention to age-appropriateness. A paw print in each section indicates a little game or idea for young trainees. The introduction invites parents to use their own language for the terms provided, but recommends child-friendly names over highly clinical terms. Ages 3 and up.
Audience: Children, Parent
