Potty Animals: What to Know When You've Gotta Go! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Wilbur, who wont wash his hands after going potty. Wilma, who waits too long…and sometimes doesnt make it in time.  And Freddie, whos afraid to flush. These are just a few of the preschool animals who need a little help with their bathroom etiquette!  

With wit and good humor, Hope Vestergaard presents a unique “toilet basics” guide for toddlers.  It covers everything from lifting the seat and closing the door to planning ahead when youre on a trip.  All told in cheerful rhyme, with hilarious illustrations, its a fun way to handle a serious subject.

 

PLAN AHEAD!     DONT WAIT TOO LONG!    GO POTTY BEFORE YOU SLEEP!     EXCUSE YOURSELF!     KNOCK FIRST!     BE SURE TO LIFT UP THE SEAT!     

CLOSE THE DOOR!     DONT LOLLYGAG!     NEVER FORGET TO WIPE!

WASH YOUR HANDS!     ZIP AND FLUSH!     ALWAYS TURN OUT THE LIGHT!

Review:

"Petrone's cheery digital characters and Vestergaard's decorous yet humorous rhymes invite readers to help civilize the bathroom habits of some uncouth preschool-age animals. Each exhibits a different undesirable trait (a bear, Georgie, 'didn't like to wipe./ He got an itchy feeling/ that made him groan and gripe'), which is followed by a clear-cut rule ('Wipe every time, Georgie!'). Vestergaard's rhymes are a weak point; they can meander and even confuse as they stretch to make the meter work. Readers may well recognize and empathize with the animals' bad behavior: forgetting to use soap, public farting, not knocking before entering, and failing to flush. Petrone's wide-eyed cartoon animals capture a broad spectrum of toddler emotions, from the blissful daydreaming of Helga the duck, who holds up the line with her lollygagging, to the embarrassment of Sukey the raccoon, who, at a slumber party, awakens from a dream about 'floating down a stream' to discover 'it's not a dream' — every kid's nightmare. Ages 3 — 6. Celebrate spring with a sampling of Easter-themed books." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
