What did you like about the book? This is an adorable book about potty training! Goldilocks is sick of having a soggy diaper and decides that she needs to potty train.  She needs to find underwear that is just right.  She then needs to find a potty that is just right.  She learns when you need to go and when you don’t need to go.  After a few mishaps, she finally gets the hang of potty training.

The illustrations in this book are so bright and colorful, as expected from Leigh Hodgkinson.

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? yes
