Publisher Summary

Clang! Clang! Clang! The fire truck is pulling out of the station. But wait! Where is the firefighter going? To the potty! Even firefighters go to the potty! Toddlers are uneasy about toilet training. And in most cases, even if they know they have to go, sometimes they are too busy to bother. In this hilarious gate-fold story, each person–from a firefighter on the way to answer a fire alarm to a zoo keeper on the way to feed the polar bears–stops what they are doing to go to the potty. With humor and no pedantics, toddlers learn that everybody uses the potty.

4.0 / 7.0

The firetruck is ready to go, but where is the firefighter? Lift the flap to reveal that he’s going to the potty! This book seems highly targeted at boys since there is only one example of a female doctor going to the potty (on closer inspection the doctor could also be a man with long hair). Other individuals going to the potty include a police officer, a baseball player, a construction worker, an astronaut, a waiter, and a captain.
