Editorial Reviews

Hilda Broon
I have been teaching Pre-K and Kindergarten students for the last nine years, and I have read a dozen other children's books on this subject before. I recommend Ferdinand's tale over the other titles for many reasons.
First, the vocabulary, language, and rhyme are easy for young children to comprehend, as well as make the story interesting and fun. The author also presents the material with an empathetic voice to allow young readers to know that they are not alone in their bathroom endeavors
Wayne S. Walker
Ferdinand Uses the Potty is a great resource for preschoolers and parents alike. Ferdinand's bravery will gently encourage children to be confident in dealing with their own potty training fears. In addition, it will provide parents with a useful aid in giving children the assistance needed to overcome the challenges of potty training. Illustrator D. E. West is a former production artist for Hallmark Cards.
