Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
One of the milestones in childhood is moving from diapers to using the toilet. In this case, the progression is to a potty chair. Duck misses the first time and makes a puddle on the floor. Will he succeed on the second try? No! How about after that? No, not quite what one is supposed to do. Finally, after mother duck imparts a few words of guidance, baby Duck succeeds. She reminds him to wash his feathers, but does not mention anything about playing with the toilet paper which streams across the closing spread. Duck is an engaging cartoon type character with big eyes and beak. The scene where duck has waited until the last minute to get to the potty and the obvious relief on his face should bring a laugh. According to the publisher the books in the "Hello Genius" series are designed to promote self-care, animal recognition, speaking skills, and first words. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS—Bunny loves to chew anything—trees, a guitar, vegetables. When eating vegetables, "Bunny chews them all together! Big, big yum! Burp." In the second book, Duck is learning to use his potty chair. "The first time, Duck misses. Quack! The second time, Duck misses. Quack!!" He eventually gets it right. Children may enjoy the gross-out humor and colorful pages, but there is nothing to set these books apart from the many other titles that fill this niche. Barbro Lindgren's Sam's Potty (HarperCollins, 1986) and Sara Anderson's Vegetables (Handprint, 2007) cover these subjects well.—Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK

My son isn't potty trained yet, but he loves the story at bedtime every night. He laughs every times we read it so I'm hoping it will eventually help, since we can talk about using the potty every night in a fun way.
