Children’s Book Review: Even Firefighters Go To The Potty🚽

There’s a lot of potty-talk going on around here these days. I get so tired of hearing myself say pee-pee and poopoo-kaka, but we have a few books that make talking about this stuff a little more pleasant. Even Firefighters Go to the Potty by Wendy Wax and Naomi Wax, illustrated by Stephen Gilpin is requested by both kids daily (today we read it 3 x’s that I can recall), and so far I don’t mind it at all. The story follows people in all sorts of kid-friendly jobs, like our titled firefighter, taking a timeout to use the loo. It’s pretty short, completely repetitive, and I find the illustrations endlessly amusing. Seriously, it’s so funny to see adults in the middle of their workday, reading the paper or whatever, using the toilet. I mean, the big burly construction worker marches off the building site, and you open a flap that looks like a porta-potty door, and there he is on the pot and looking at a catalogue, taking a crap. Teddy’s favorite picture is the last one. We ask, where did the polar bears at the zoo go? And when you open the bathroom door the bears are peering through the window at the zookeeper who is finishing up his business in the bathroom. Amazing. Those bears in the window kill him.
We highly recommend picking this one up when you’re ready for potty-training. It totally makes the potty look cool.
