More About Joanna Cole & Maxie Chambliss

Joanna Cole Joanna Cole is the author of the popular Magic School Bus series, I'm a Big Brother, I'm a Big Sister, and many other award-winning books. In Asking About Sex & Growing Up, she provides a reassuring blend of practical guidance and scientific fact for the audience that needs it most.

I discovered in the fifth grade that I enjoyed explaining things and writing reports for school. I had a teacher who was a little like Ms. Frizzle. She loved her subject. Every week she had a child do an experiment in front of the room, and I always wanted to be that child. Grade school was very important to me maybe that's why I ended up writing books for children as an adult.

After graduating from college, I worked as an elementary-school teacher, a librarian, a children's book editor, and a writer. My first book was Cockroaches. An article in the Wall Street Journal inspired me to do some research. I discovered that there had never been a children's book written about cockroaches before. So I thought, why not? Plus, I had ample time to study that creature in my low-budget New York apartment!

Since then I have written both nonfiction and fiction books for children. In my science books, including The Magic School Bus books, I write about ideas, rather than just the facts. I try to ask a question, such as how do scientists guess what dinosaurs were like? Then I try to answer the question as I write the book.

Writing is hard work, but it's the greatest fun in the world.

Joanna Cole currently resides in the state of Connecticut.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Big Boy Potty?

Love this book!  May 3, 2008
My son loved this book and it definitely encouraged him with potty training. After the first read he would make comments about being 'like Michael in the book'. We used this book in conjunction with sticker reward chart and he potty trained in a very short amount of time!
Great Potty Training Book for Boys  Apr 21, 2008
My son relates to this book. It "asks" questions like "This is Micheal. He wears diapers. Do you wear diapers?" and my son gets really interested because he thinks the book is talking to him. Very good.
Finally!  Apr 19, 2008
Finally, a book that got my toddler interested in using the potty! I'm not sure what it was about this book, but he read it only once or twice before he wanted me to read it to him while he sat on the potty. It has worked great in peaking his interest to potty and be like the character in the book.
Also, we tried using M&Ms as a reward every time he pottied, but then started a sticker chart (found in another book) and that has worked even better!
My son ignored at 2, loved at 2 1/2  Mar 7, 2008
I got this book because I liked the story and it didn't show bathroom misbehavior - why tell kids about pulling all the toilet paper off the roll? He didn't like it at first, but right around 2 1/2, when he really seemed ready to start training, he really started to like it.
Son loves this book!  Feb 26, 2008
My 22 month old son hadn't shown much interest in potty training until we got him this book. Now, he likes to read it every day and sit on the potty, just like Michael. He's nowhere close to being potty trained, but this book has helped to start the process!
