Growing Up Just Got Easier...Θ
With the help of Angus, the lovable Answer Dog, best-selling author Heidi Murkoff extends a hand to children and parents as they tackle life's first experiences together.
You've watched with pride as your child has reached each milestone on the road of development called growing up. But, if you're like most parents, the milestone that looms largest and is most daunting is potty learning. We're here to help you answer your child's questions about when and how to use the potty, why it's important, and how to make the transition from diapers to underpants a smooth one.
Heidi and Angus
One in the 'What to Expect Kids' Series, this edition leaves nothing to the imagination in its exploration of elimination. The book begins by introducing Angus, the Answer Dog. Angus leads the reader through such pressing questions and answers as "Where do pee-pee and poop come from", Why don't pee-pee and poop look like food and drink" and "Why do I have to wipe after I go to the potty." Parents should first read "A Note to Parents" section provided at the end of the book for suggestions from the author's "straightforward" approach to potty training. Colorful cartoon-like drawings of Angus and various children negotiating the process of potty training as well as short interactive suggestions in each question area provide additional interest. 2000, HarperCollins, Ages 18 mo. to 3.
