Children can be frightened by the sight and sound of a flushing toilet. This book (featuring a toilet flushing sound chip) reassures children that the toilet is not something to fear but part of the growing up process. Includes Potty Time Chart.
Mary’s Review: A very cute board book that teaches in a simple, fun and understandable way the process of using the big girl potty from going pee pee to wiping herself to washing her hands. It has a potty chart in the back to help reward her when she has completed each process. My granddaughters who are 1 and 3 really found it fun. My 3 year old granddaughter explained to me how she all ready does the things explained in the book. They both especially liked the toilet flushing sounds. The illustrations are colorful, fun and cute.
I recommend this book for children ages 2 – 4.

Product Description from Amazon:
Karen Katz’s distinctive illustrations bring baby’s words to life! Lift the flaps in this sturdy board book to see what a hungry baby, a happy baby, and more say!
Mary’s Review: I absolutely loved this “lift the flaps” book and so did my one year old granddaughter. The illustrations are brightly colored and the flaps are large enough for her to lift on her own without tearing them. I chuckled at a couple of the what the baby says and thought of a few of my own.
I highly recommend this book for ages 1-3.
