Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A toddler announces that he’s a “big kid today,” because he’s not wearing diapers. Along with his teddy bear (they both have their own “potties”), the boy instructs readers on what to do, from sitting down and waiting to cleaning up, and, of course, flushing. A button with the words “Flush Me!” on it creates the sound of a toilet flushing when pressed. The cheerful images and fun sound effect provide gentle encouragement for the potty training camp. Ages 2�4. (May)

Kirkus Reviews
A toddler shares his glee at leaving diapers behind. The book is completely child-focused, without an adult in sight. This youngster's independence influences each aspect of his toileting; he takes himself to the pot, and he uses a step stool to reach the sink to wash his hands after. There's no indication that any accidents may occur. The boy boasts, "When it's time, I know." Brisk, rhyming phrases miss the mark. "Everyone uses the potty, / like me and Daddy and Mommy. / It's potty time, hooray! / I'm a big kid today." With a little button nose and short spiky hair, the Caucasian tot is appealing. His favorite teddy bear plays the role of a loyal companion and even sits on his own potty just like the child. A die-cut–framed, battery-operated button ("flush me!") triggers sound effects. Adults looking for a straightforward celebration of this milestone will gravitate toward this short selection, but there's no hint of the inevitable missteps young children face during the process. Though its single-minded focus on success offers positive role modeling, it needs to be used with other, more realistic titles (and lots of patience). (Board book. 2-3)
