Poop or Get Off the Potty!
Written by Margaret McNamara | Illustrated by Allison Black for Henry Holt and Co. | February 2019 | Hardcover
When Mason and Mia were babies, they pooped a lot—always in their diapers. Now that they're big kids, it's time to use the potty. But what is the potty for? Naps? NO. Books? NO. Playing the drums? No, no, no! Mason and Mia look ahead to official big-kid territory in this hilarious, instructive story with special emphasis on that momentous toddler milestone: pooping in the potty!
A potty-training book with potty humor aplenty. Mason and Mia are ready to potty train. But the story starts before they reach toddlerhood....[T]heir “small…big…messy…tidy…easy…tough...smelly…and cute poops” are referenced with parents’ attending, funny reactions. Then toddler Mason...and toddler Mia...joke about what the potties are for until they simultaneously realize, “A poop is coming!” Seated on their respective thrones...they successfully encourage each other to follow the titular injunction....[T]he book’s wholehearted embrace of its subject should make it welcome in many a toddler’s household. (Kirkus, February 2019)
