"Oh No, Gotta Go!"
Written by Susan Middleton Elya
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas
(G. P. Putnam & Sons, 2003)

A really cute bilingual (Spanish-English) book about learning to go potty in the outside world. A family is out for a Sunday drive when their little girl announces, with great urgency, that she needs to pee -- NOW. DE PRISA. The rhyming text is effective and amusing, the pictures are a hoot (some of the finest work Karas has done to date...) and the integration of the Spanish vocabulary is skillfully handled, as is the issue of potty training and needing to go when you need to go. One of Elya's finest books -- definitely worth checking out! (A)

"Time To Pee"
Written by Mo Willems
Illustrated by Mo Willems
(Hyperion, 2003)

A primer about going potty... I wanted to read it, but it's the kind of book you don't exactly want to buy used or get from the library. Now it's too late -- we already learned how to use the potty. Oh, well! I'm sure it's both hilarious and useful. (-)
