Everybody needs to use the potty, including Josh and all the animals. Some need one for their big bottom, while others need one for their thin bottom. Some need one for their green bottom, while others need one for their furry bottom. Josh needs one for his bare bottom—well done, Josh! This book makes potty time a fun, pressurefree activity.

Het boek is 10 jaar geleden uitgebracht en is nu nog steeds geliefd en inmiddels een van Genechtens succesvolste prentenboeken gebleken. Daarom is het nu als klassieker op groot formaat herdrukt.

Het waarom van dat succes is goed te begrijpen. In dit boek zien we namelijk, verspreid over de eerste twee bladzijdes, paginagroot, kleine Jos afgebeeld die een plasje moet doen. Het jochie heeft een leuke, olijke snoet. Het mooie rode potje staat naast hem en Jos roept om zijn mama, zij moet hem even

We read "The Big Potty Book", the board book version of this book. Simply book about everyone going potty. If read with different voice you can get some pretty good laughs... After all there are some big bottoms on some tiny potties. If you can't laugh about bodily functions.... Well then you are just reading a book about pee and poop.

All these different animals take turns sitting on the same small red little kid potty. Well, I like animals, and the style of the pictures was neat, like you could see newsprint peeking out from under the paints, but I probably won't check it out from the library again, or even remember reading it.

**UPDATE** Now I am potty trained. I think that this book played a role in getting me ready to use the potty. Mama and Papa checked it out again for me to read.

Even though I am not ready for potty training, I love to sit on my frog potty and read this book. When we get to the elephant sitting with a "thump", I sit down with a thump too. I love to grab the book and say, "Mama, it's potty time!" When Papa reads the book he does funny voices for each of the animals. This makes me smile. I call the

At first glance, I thought this book was about how everyone finds a potty that is "just right." At least that's the impression I got from the product description on Amazon. But it's actually a silly comedy in which big animals are on small potties and small animals are on big potties. Kids would probably find it funny, but I'm not sure my starting-to-potty-train toddler would get it yet. Disappointing, since it's kinda cute.

This was an interesting children's book. I'm not really sure what to think about it. It was mainly pictures but it stressed the idea that everyone is big or small and uses different sizes of potties when they use the bathroom. I would use caution when reading this book to a class. They must be a very young group that has just started to learn about reading, their alphabet, etc.

This book is about a lot of animals and a boy named Joe who all went to the potty. I think it would be an interesting book for beginners to read. It makes a child feel like if everyone and everything is going to the potty, then why not me. Good for preschoolers.
Dylan Reisz
Big elephant butts on little potties and teeny mice butts on big potties, etc. Actually, the potty stays the same size. It's the perfect size for Joe. Not a very exciting book, but it helps pass a little time.

I loved this book. Again, I'll be using this as part of a French storytime book to help kids get used to basic French vocabulary. I was initially squeamish about the subject matter but I got over it. Cute.

This is a book about going to the bathroom. I would use this in a preschool setting to show that it is important to go to the bathroom on a toliet.

Read this to a 2 year-old who likes animals today. If you have a stubborn toddler who likes animals, this may be good.

Another simple potty favorite at 2. Many animals try to use the potty, but the potty is the perfect size for Joe.

There is a potty for every bottom. Good job, Joe.
