About the Book

From firefighters to doctors to zookeepers, toddlers will discover where each person has gone despite his or her busy day. With fun gatefold flaps, this hilarious story teaches children that everyone needs to take time to go the potty. Full color.

Book Synopsis

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.

Best Boys Potty Training Book!

5 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Ray - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
My son absolutely loves this potty training book. I thought it only starred the firefighter as shown on the cover but I was pleasantly surprised to read through and see other people like doctors, athletes, engineers, construction workers, etc also use the potty. Girls may like this book as well but it seems to cater more towards boys.

Doesnt Rhyme

Personally, I enjoy reading books that rhyme & my kids enjoy it more too. This book doesn’t rhyme so it doesn’t really grab their attention.

I am used to potty books using children to teach the idea, this used cartoon images of community figures (fire fighter, police officer, construction worker, etc). My husband and I were laughing at the pictures, but my son was very engaged!

I bought this book for my niece to go along with her brand new potty. Her dad is a Milwaukee firefighter and so I couldn't resist buying this book... She hasn't begun potty training yet but LOVES to be read to and loves flipping the flaps. Overall, a really cute book!!
