Mommy got me a brand new potty!
But I'm not ready yet!
I want to run and play.
Uh-oh, I peed in my pants.
But Mommy says, "That's okay!"
Children will love following along and lifting the flaps to see the child play, sit on thepotty, eat, sit on the potty, sleep, and then sit on the potty...until finally there is success.
Written from a child's point of view, this new potty-training book will help children join in the final refrain, "I'm so proud of me!"
With interactive gatefold flaps, Katz addresses a perennial toddler issue — potty training. In a very realistic, child-appealing text, Katz describes how a gender-neutral toddler struggles to learn how to use the potty. Full color.
