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

Adorable Angus the Answer Dog cheerfully and respectfully guides young children through the exciting, sometimes daunting experience of potty training. An ideal read-aloud book for children who are on the verge of transitioning from diapers to big-kid underpants, this matter-of-fact book explains the process naturally and calmly. Each two-page spread asks a question: "Where do pee-pee and poop come from?" "What's a potty?" "How do I know when to go to the potty?" "Why do I have to wash my hands?" and more, each question anticipating the next. Angus answers these queries with clarity, sensitivity, and attention to age-appropriateness. Amusing and appealing pictures by Laura Rader illustrate such compelling details (well, to small children, anyway!) as where pee-pee and poop go after flushing. A paw print in each section indicates a little game or idea for young trainees. The introduction invites parents to use their own language for the terms provided, but recommends child-friendly names over highly clinical terms.
Heidi Murkoff, coauthor of the bestselling pregnancy book, What to Expect When You're Expecting, writes lucidly and honestly in all the books in the tremendously appealing What to Expect series for young children, including What to Expect When Mommy's Having a Baby and What to Expect When You Go to the Doctor. Soon young readers will be "flushed" with pride at reaching another big developmental milestone! (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
