Summary
Meet Wilbur, who won't wash his hands after going potty. Wilma, who waits too long...and sometimes doesn't make it in time. And Freddie, who's afraid to flush. These are just a few of the preschool animals who need a little help with their bathroom etiquette!

With wit and good humor, Hope Vestergaard presents a unique "toilet basics" guide for toddlers. It covers everything from lifting the seat and closing the door to planning ahead when you're on a trip. All told in cheerful rhyme, with hilarious illustrations, it's a fun way to handle a serious subject.

PLAN AHEAD! DON'T WAIT TOO LONG! GO POTTY BEFORE YOU SLEEP! EXCUSE YOURSELF! KNOCK FIRST! BE SURE TO LIFT UP THE SEAT!

CLOSE THE DOOR! DON'T LOLLYGAG! NEVER FORGET TO WIPE!

WASH YOUR HANDS! ZIP AND FLUSH! ALWAYS TURN OUT THE LIGHT!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kids will learn the rules of toilet training in this cheerful, rhyming picture book that introduces a cast of young beasties who make mistakes in their preschool's potty until they realize how to handle all the aspects of hygiene, cleanliness, privacy, and finishing up ( flush and zip ).Wilma tends to wait too long before she goes to the potty, and sometimes she is too late. Freddie is afraid to flush, so he acts like he forgets. Helga reads and dreams on the toilet while a line of kids wait to use it. In the schoolyard, Arnold is great at shooting the ball in the net, but when it is time to go to the bathroom, he isn't always accurate; he hits the lid, then the floor: Yuck! Lift the seat. Benji, who tends to barge in on others, learns his lesson when someone does the same to him: Knock first! Never intimidating, this informative, fun title, illustrated in smooth, candy-colored artwork, shows that everyone can mess up, get over it, and learn to change.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Petrone's cheery digital characters and Vestergaard's decorous yet humorous rhymes invite readers to help civilize the bathroom habits of some uncouth preschool-age animals. Each exhibits a different undesirable trait (a bear, Georgie, "didn't like to wipe./ He got an itchy feeling/ that made him groan and gripe"), which is followed by a clear-cut rule ("Wipe every time, Georgie!"). Vestergaard's rhymes are a weak point; they can meander and even confuse as they stretch to make the meter work. Readers may well recognize and empathize with the animals' bad behavior: forgetting to use soap, public farting, not knocking before entering, and failing to flush. Petrone's wide-eyed cartoon animals capture a broad spectrum of toddler emotions, from the blissful daydreaming of Helga the duck, who holds up the line with her lollygagging, to the embarrassment of Sukey the raccoon, who, at a slumber party, awakens from a dream about "floating down a stream" to discover "it's not a dream"-every kid's nightmare.
