“While most potty books strike readers as too old or too young, here’s one that almost everyone can agree is (you guessed it) just right.” - Kirkus Reviews Little Goldilocks wants to wear underwear – big-girl underwear that’s not too silly and not too frilly, but just right. But that means she also needs to find the “just right” potty. Will she know when she needs to go? And will she get to the potty in time? Find out in this lighthearted story that will have parents and their little ones feeling ready to tackle toilet training.
The illustrations in this book were definitely my favorite part of this book—they are amazing, fun and unique. I love fractured fairy tales and anything akin to them, but I felt like this book didn’t quite live up to my high hopes in terms of a Goldilocks parody. As a potty training book, however, it gives you an opportunity to talk about finding undies your child is excited about, their special potty that’s just the right size for them (if applicable) and that even though it may be hard and there may be some accidents along the way, they’ll eventually be successful!
