Thursday Book Rec

I am an admitted book worm. If I could swim in books or sleep in them, I truly would. I am constantly on the lookout for new ones, both for the kids and myself. There's no better love you can inspire in children than the desire to read, but again, I am thousand-percent biased. This is one in a series of posts spotlighting books we picked up and absolutely loved! Most of these can be appreciated by just about any age, and I say this because I love them just as much as the kids do. I hope you do, too!

Potty Animals: What to Know When You've Gotta Go!
Potty Animals: What to Know When You've Gotta Go

Title & Author: 
Potty Animals: What to Know When You Gotta Go by Hope Vestergaard

What It's About:
It's a rhyming picture book that lays out on the table all the bad and truly hilarious habits people/kids have when using or learning to use the bathroom.  These characters remind me so much of the things my kids do that aren't quite so laughable when I'm washing the bathroom rugs for the 10th time in a week, but hey, you gotta laugh sometime, right? There's a whole array of colorful characters, including Fred who "forgets" to flush the potty because he's actually afraid of the whole thing, then barging Benji who never knocks before he enters (this one hits just a little too close to home), and Arnold, whose aim isn't always the best. 

My Thoughts:
Fun-ny! Even if you've been potty-trained for ages, this one's a funny one and you're sure to laugh till it hurts, or till the kids look at you sideways, whichever comes first.
