Cute premise, fundamental problems
am 23. Mai 2000
This book is based on a wonderful idea, but there are some fundamental issues. What would prompt the author to name the little girl Prudence? The text is also awkward and too long in places - my daughter is turning the pages before we finish reading it. Also, the illustrations are still circa-1970 - both graphically and in color choice. My daughter thinks the potty is a big cup, which seems to confuse her more than it helps. I was potty trained in 1972 and even back then my potty chair looked like a potty chair, not a giant coffee cup.
I hope that Frankel will consider updating the key elements of this book to appeal to the modern toddler, though I know the book isn't that old.
