LoveReading View on Skip to the Loo, My Darling! A Potty Book

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

In vibrant, rhythmic, rhyming beats, Sally Lloyd-Jones gets the party going in a book that simply rejoices in the call of nature!

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?

Skip to the Loo, My Darling! A Potty Book Press Reviews

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

A lovely introduction to potties, or perhaps encouragement to give it another chance. SLA

This is not just another book about using the potty, it is a fun and engaging story, with rhyme and rhythm, which will be very appealing to young children. [...] Although it can be an arduous task, this book will make potty-training much more fun for both parents and children. Carousel
