There's so much to learn about growing up! And learning to use the potty may not be an easy task at first, but it's one of the ways for children -- and their parents -- to realize just how much they're growing and learning. Fred Rogers explains the process of toilet training with his usual gentle warmth.
"Going to the Potty handles a sensitive subject with the same quiet candor and respect for young audiences that are the hallmark of his Mister Rogers' Neighborhood TV show."--Publishers Weekly
Parent and child may read together about the way children develop in the experience of eliminating waste products from their body and about the positive aspects of using the toilet.
