This is a great book for bolstering the confidence of a beginning reader. It has simple, short sentences and lots of colorful pictures. It shows children of various abilities and friends playing together. Sam, who always seems to have problems in these books, needs to go potty but doesn't know which door to pick. He figures it out and starts to learn to read in the process.
