PreSchool-K Andrew’s mother and father are careful to ask him beforehand, “Andrew, do you have to go pee?” Andrew always answers, “No, no, no.” Any parent can guess the rest. As soon as he’s firmly belted in the car or immobilized in a snowsuit , Andrew bellows “I have to go!” His family is annoyed, but kind, about the inconvenience, and Andrew surprises everyone by getting up at night to go to the bathroom with grandpa and not wetting his bed again that evening. The cartoon characters are expressive and nice.
A potty-trained child from three to five will enjoy the humor in this preschool vignette, but like a family photo album, this subject has limited appeal. This is an attractive, well-designed, sturdy package, but an ever-so-additional choice.
Bedwetting Book Review
Preschoolers who are in the throes of toilet training, or who have just attained this milestone, will appreciate Andrew’s predicament and Munsch’s gentle exaggeration.
Martchenko’s exaggerated illustrations are a splendid complement to Munsch’s direct and pleasantly repetitive narration. The author’s popularity is already widely established, and this title should do well both in libraries and bookstores serving children of preschool and primary grades.
