I Have to Go by Robert Munsch


I Have to Go by Robert Munsch

The ever-popular story of a little boy in the throes of toilet training.


Preschoolers who are in the throes of toilet training, or who have just attained this milestone, will appreciate Andrew's predicament and Munsch's gentle exaggeration. Martchenko's exaggerated illustrations are a splendid complement to Munsch's direct and pleasantly repetitive narration. The author's popularity is already widely established, and this title should do well both in libraries and bookstores serving children of preschool and primary grades.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
