Potty Animals: What to Know When You've Gotta Go
By Hope Vestergaard

Sterling Publ. - Children's (Post-potty training)
Potty Animals is an absolutely hilarious book of toilet manners that had me laughing out loud. Written in rhyme with an emphatic one-sentence summary to finish each lesson, the book reminds children to wash their hands, close the door, remember not to wait too long, lift the toilet seat, use the bathroom before bedtime, etc. I wish I'd had this book when my children were young. It's a cheerful, funny, entertaining way to learn some proper manners.
A final page summarizes all the lessons in one brightly-colored speech cloud.
Storyline: 5/5 - Wonderful - A terrific teaching tool for parents and teachers.
Illustrations: 5/5 - Adorable, big-headed animals in bright, colorful designs clearly illustrate each lesson.
This is #2 for Children's Day! More to come.
