"Put your Botty on the Potty" by Sam Lloyd (Pavilion Children's Books)

Getting a curmudgeonly 11 year old to review a book about potty training would normally be a hopeless cause - if it wasn't for the fact that this is a Sam Lloyd book, and Sam's books were a huge part of C's early reading journey.

"Put your Botty on the Potty" by Sam Lloyd might at first appear to be a zany scatological look at something that we might now take for granted, but for many parents trying to get their fidgety little misses or misters to stay put while they do their business isn't easy - so what better than a hilarious and strangely captivating lift the flap book to keep them occupied while they do their number ones and number twos!

With Sam's trademark crazy humour, little ones will soon demand this book every time they sit down to take a load off. Thankfully it's nicely designed and should survive a good wet-wiping or two!

Little Moo Monster is growing up and no longer happy to be in a nappy. Moo wants to be more grown up than his baby sister. So the lovable monster discards his diaper and suddenly there's poop everywhere (oh gawd, we do remember this all too well, even though it was over a decade ago!)

Mom gets a potty, and Moo practices sitting on it until, finally...success! Moo can progress to grown-up underpants that he can pull up and down--which means he can go to the Monster Pant Party with all his little potty-trained friends.

Sum this book up in a sentence: Zany illustrations and laugh-out-loud humor makes this the perfect potty-training tool for all toddlers and their parents.
"Put Your Botty on the Potty" by Sam Lloyd is out now, published by Pavilion Children's Books (Kindly supplied for review).
