The Lovereading4Kids comment

Never has using the potty seemed a more tempting option than in this exuberant picture book! After a scrumptious picnic with cakes and fruit and lots of juice to drink, Bunny has his legs crossed – what should he do? Why, skip to the loo of course! He’s not the only one who needs their potty, and a whole parade of animals hop, bounce and scoot along too – dogs, frogs, a kangaroo, even a dodo! A merry rhyming text keeps everything moving along at pace and the illustrations, by the peerless Anita Jeram of Guess How Much I Love You? fame, are delicate but full of bouncy energy. There’s a special surprise for little readers on the last page too. Everyone will want to join this potty party! ~ Andrea Reece


Skip to the Loo, My Darling! A Potty Book by Sally Lloyd-Jones

Bunny wants his potty. What will bunny do? Only one thing for it ...skip to the loo! Bunny's not the only one skipping to the loo. Look who else wants their potty! Quite a few...

In vibrant, rhythmic, rhyming beats, Sally Lloyd-Jones gets the party going in a book that simply rejoices in the call of nature! Everyone is invited to celebrate - from an only lonely dodo to a wibbly woo, Lord and Lady Huff Puff and a ballerina elephant in a tutu, too! When the Potty Party is truly in full swing, and everyone's on their potty - POO! POO! POO! - bunny spots that someone very important is missing...Wait! Could it be you?


A rather irresistibly titled potty book that rejoices in the call of nature. Great fun, and a guaranteed toddler pleaser. Bookseller An exuberantly fun potty book with an absolutely universal appeal - perfect for toddlers everywhere. The Bookseller A delightful picnic is in progress and the illustrator Anita Jeram draws the sweetest mice in jerkins and waistcoats [...] Essential reading for all potty trainees. The Observer
