Let’s Get This Potty Started

Wonderland. (Punderland). Oct. 2022. 24p. Board. $8.99. ISBN 9781728257501.
Toddler-PreS–Potty puns abound in this charming potty primer. Animal parents encourage their babies to follow the usual steps of toilet training, including flushing, washing their hands, and putting down the lid. Bright colors; smiling, furry faces; and cheery signs help extend the metaphor that toilet training is an important milestone that caregivers and kids are trying to achieve together. The rhymes and play on words sometimes get tiring, but tots won’t mind. Silly illustrations bring the message home, from dancing toilet paper to smiling turds being happily flushed down the toilet. Though potty training isn’t always joyous, finally crossing the finish line certainly is.
VERDICT A cute selection for board book shelves.
