Item description for Uh Oh! Gotta Go!: Potty Tales From Toddlers by Bob McGrath & Shelley Dieterichs...
Overview Twenty-seven vignettes showing a variety of experiences of many different children during the toilet training process.
Publishers Description Twenty-seven humorous vignettes are cleverly captioned illustrations designed to help parents and kids cope with the challenges of toilet training. Toddlers will laugh when they see Mark picking out a potty at the toy store. And back at home, Toby didn't quite make it to the potty this time. He'll have better luck next time. Jordon waits till the last minute too-but hooray We see him in the bathroom, and we know he made it on time. Alison is proud because she uses a grown-up toilet, and Amanda reads a picture book when she sits on her potty. Neither parents nor children need to take potty training too seriously, because sooner or later, everything works out just fine. That's the message at the heart of Bob McGrath's cheerful book-and boys and girls will enjoy seeing their own potty experiences repeated on these pages.

I'm a fan Mar 7, 2008
This is not your typical potty book. It shows little people interacting with their potties in all sorts of ways -- rapping out a beat, choosing the perfect potty, bedtime rituals, toilet paper rituals, underpants. This puts a smile on the face of my five-year-old, and my three-year-old is *totally* absorbed. There is no story line, but you can make up a lot of story to go with the illustrations. Very nice!
Waste of Money Dec 19, 2001
I bought this book and was very disappointed. My daughter is 3 years old and has no interest in the potty. This book doesn't teach any basics or gives them any motivation. It is one-liners and children don't get the jist of the toilet learning process, my daughter finds it confusing and never pays attention when I read it. Just a waste of money, in my opinon.
Didn't impress me Nov 27, 2001
I bought four books about potty training and this was the worst! Made no sense (must admit I am no child psychologist) and my child remembers and understands the other three books and wants to read them over and over again unlike this one. I wouldn't recommend it at all.
27 Chilling Tales of the Potty Oct 18, 2001
Bob McGrath is a literary genius. His chillingly accurate portrayal of life on the potty from the perspective of 27 very different people will keep you riveted till the last page. Coupled with the gritty realism of Shelley Dieterichs' illustrations, this should be on the top of everyone's Must Read List. A story that particularly struck me was that of little Jacob Malloy, a boy who discovers the potty's magical ability to "flush the bad stuff away." His initial offerings to the potty are innocent enough, such as candy wrappers and plastic cowboys, but things take a turn for the macabre when his little sister eats his half of a candy bar that Daddy told them to share. I don't want to spoil it, but it has a plot twist the likes of which I've never read before or since. McGrath's "Uh-Oh! Gotta Go!" is a masterpiece that is destined for the top of this site's bestseller list.
The author is Sesame Street's "Bob" and he knows! Jul 22, 2001
This books helps teach kids about different ways children and their potties go through this rite of passage together. My 2 and 1/2 year old LOVED this book and I truly appreciate the diverse group of children on its colorful and vibrant pages. From have potty, will travel, to wanting it in the bedroom, each child has a signature and singular experience with their potty which culminates at the end with the same result for everyone: underpants! (Our ultimate goal, don't you know.) There is not a plot but if you are a parent who asks comprehension and extension questions when you read to your child, this will be perfect!
