Mij Kelly, Illustrated by Mary McQuillan - All books by this author
When it’s time for potty training, both toddlers and parents will have fun with this book. Told in verse, it’s the story of Suzy Sue, who has something very important to do! The truth is, she needs to poo—but someone has snatched her potty away! Kids will laugh at the big, bright color illustrations as they turn each page, and as Mom or Dad reads Suzy Sue’s funny story. Worried, she goes running all around the farmyard, asking each of the animals if they’ve seen her potty. Fortunately all is well at story’s end—and toddlers will be encouraged to use a potty, just like Suzy Sue. (Ages 2–4)
From the Reviews:
“Youngsters, already tickled with the bathroom humor, will be in hysterics as Suzy Sue asks each animal in turn if they have seen her potty . . . Kelly’s rhymes keep the tale moving along, although read-alouds may be interrupted by raucous laughter caused by McQuillan’s artwork. The animals’ body language and facial expressions will be all too familiar to the recently potty-trained and their trainers. The brightly colored illustrations have a country feel and delightfully adorable anthropomorphized animals. This is a sure winner for the toddler and preschool set. (Picture book. 2-5)”
