Horn Book Review

Superheroes, firefighters, ninjas, teachers, and more all take a break from their work to use the bathroom in this instructive picture book. Each role model is depicted in flat, cartoonlike illustrations while an accompanying stanza of superfluous text features forced rhymes and awkward rhythms. However, the casual tone and mild bathroom humor encourage toilet use, and a sticker chart may motivate reluctant potty-users. (c) Copyright 2018.
