Overview

Olivia has taken many adventures in her two and a half years: Holding up her head and smiling at her parents. Sitting up. Feeding herself in her highchair. Learning to talk. Walking (that was a big one!) still takes her on many new adventures around the house (when she's not blocked by the babygate). Now comes one of the biggest adventures of her young life - getting on the potty. Getting up there, not falling in, doing the business and getting back down. Can she do it? Of course she can . . . she's Olivia, Princess of Imagination. Come along and see how!

Reviews

"A fabulous addition to every child's potty book library or bathroom book basket. It engages young readers, and their parents, in playful potty understanding from readiness to developmental skill-building. It builds body awareness across different situations, teaches personal responsibility through age-appropriate problem solving, and thankfully, makes mistakes and accidents part of the learning process."  —Karen Deerwester, author, The Potty Training Answer Book

"Olivia's Potty Adventures is an excellent book to introduce the concept of toilet training to young children and features a diverse, African American lead character." —We Need Diverse Books

"Olivia's Potty Adventures is a fabulous addition to every child's potty book library or bathroom book basket. It engages young readers, and their parents, in playful potty understanding from readiness to developmental skill-building." —Karen Deerwester, Owner, Family Time, Inc.; author, The Potty Training Answer Book

"Olivia's Potty Adventures! is a whimsical, rhyming picture book that celebrates the childhood triumph of learning to know when to go. The world of Olivia's imagination is as big and boundless as it is colorful and cute. I often found myself smiling at the images of her taking breaks in the midst of her adventures and loved seeing the bold and empowered stance Olivia takes even in the world of pretend. Children of color will especially love seeing themselves mirrored in the main character." —Micheline Hess, cartoonist and consummate foodie; artist & writer, Malice in Ovenland

"A fun, entertaining look at the adventure of toilet training that reflects as many sides of the child as there are personalities of children conquering this milestone of development! Parents, enjoy the journey with them!" —Duan Cannon, Montessori Teacher, 0-3 and 3-6
