Potty Animals by Hope Vestergaard and Valeria Petrone

Potty Animals by Hope Vestergaard and illustrated by Valeria Petrone was published in 2010 and is one of the cutest potty books I've seen. The title page says, "Potty Animals What to Know When You've Gotta Go!"

Each page highlights one animal and the mistake they often make when going potty.

For instance, "Wilma tends to wait too long. She always keeps on playing. She doesn't want to lose her turn, or miss what kids are saying. So Wilma hops from foot to foot. She waits and waits and waits. And when it's time, she has to race . . . but sometimes she's too late!"

Wilbur the hedgehog doesn't wash his hands, Arnold the alligator has bad aim, Freddie the rabbit is afraid to flush, Helga the goose spends too long in the bathroom, Benji barges right in, Roxanne doesn't go before getting on the bus, Stanley pees outside, Georgie doesn't like to wipe, Farley doesn't close the door, and so on.

This is a cute and funny book that addresses all the things little kids need to remember when going potty even down to remembering to zip your pants. The illustrations are bright and colorful.

Read to a child today even if that child is you. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
