Review quote

Sentimental story that has long been a favorite gift at baby showers. Best-selling classic of a parent's enduring love is available in a gift edition. A humorous, sentimental page-turner that rarely - let's say never -- leaves a reader with a dry eye. My children and I enjoyed it, night after night, for years... A charmer. The simple story touches the heart. The starting point for a first-rate library for your grandchildren... a tender ode to the life cycle of a family. #5 on Instructor's "Teachers Pick the Top 50 Kids Books Ever," chosen by 200 teachers, authors, and children's literature experts. Your child will be empowered by Joshua as he learns to use his new potty. Once Upon a Potty-Boy shows...step by step and explains things in a way [my boy] seemed to comprehend.--Tami Brady"TCM Reviews" (10/01/2010) My little boy is one of those kids that has to understand the why and how of things. If he doesn't see the point of something, he simply won't do it. Once Upon a Potty-Boy shows him step by step and explains things in a way he seemed to comprehend. At least now he's willing to try the potty. And that's a big step in the right direction.--Tami Brady"TCM Reviews" (10/01/2010)
