Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Similarly showcasing Katz's artwork in a lift-the-flap format (this time with laminated rather than board book pages) for the paper-over-board A Potty for Me! The text takes the child's perspective ("I try my brand new potty. It kind of feels okay./ But I'm not ready yet. I want to go and play") through an accident and several other unproductive attempts until-success ("Yeah! I really did it! And now I know I can. I can go in my potty, and I will do it again!"). Brightly patterned clothes, tile and carpet make this an appealing household to visit. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-A pleasant and fairly innocuous addition to an already crowded field, this rhymed book with reinforced pages uses color cartoon illustrations of a child of indeterminate gender who tries, with mixed results, to use the potty. The upbeat text employs expressions like "That's okay!" and "Yeah! I really did it!" If you already own Lara Jones's I Love My Potty (Scholastic, 2002) or Harriet Ziefert's Max's Potty and Sara's Potty (both DK, 1999; o.p.), you probably have enough on the subject. But if you need a new title (and remember, there's only so much that's possible in a book of this type), this one will serve its purpose.-Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
