POTTY AND LOTTIE
Rhyming Potty Book
by Ksenia Walker
ages 1 to 4
With very simple rhymes, this tale encourages children while addressing some of their uncertainties of leaving a diaper.
Lottie's parents want her to use a potty and get out of her diaper stage, but she isn't quite so sure.
Lottie is a very average girl, who stands before a change in life that all kids face - diapers adieu! But it's not that easy to leave something that's been part of the child's life behind. This is a calm tale of a gentle transition from diapers to toilet. Lottie's thoughts are understandable and simple enough for children in her age group to understand. The rhyming is a bit simple and doesn't flow well at times, but the wording is easy enough for the young listeners to understand.
The characters in this book are diverse, reaching a larger scope of kids. And the drawings depict the basics in colorful ways. Children will have no trouble grasping the ideas and maybe feel a little more comfortable facing this change in their own lives.
