School Library Journal Review
PreS-Each title includes a letter to parents extolling the benefits of reading to children. Neither Lily's nor Pete's potty can be found. Readers and listeners must lift the flaps as they search under the bed and in the kitchen, and eventually discover the missing item in the bathroom. After using their respective potties, the children wash their hands. Youngsters always enjoy books they can manipulate, and these titles will have fans, but Barbro Lindgren's Sam's Potty (Methuen, 1986) is still the best of the toilet-training genre. In What Shapes Do You See? large, sturdy, die-cut foldouts reveal bright glossy photographs of squares, circles, triangles and rectangles. In Where's Your Nose? the text accompanying the full-color photographs of teddy bears touching various parts of the body invites small listeners to find their toes, nose, etc. Some pages include texture inserts, in the tradition of Dorothy Kunhardt's Pat the Bunny. These titles are adequate choices for refreshing board-book collections.-Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK (c) Copyright 2010.
