Dinosaur vs. the Potty (Dinosaur vs. #2)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Series: Dinosaur vs.
Dinosaur doesn't need to use the potty. Even when he's making lemonade, running through the sprinkler, having a three juice box lunch, and splashing in rain puddles. See? He's doing his victory dance. Wait . . . that's not a victory dance, that looks like a POTTY DANCE! Run, Dinosaur, run! Dinosaur vs. the Potty, with humor that both toddlers and parents will enjoy, is a great way to toilet train. Dinosaur's stubborn resistance--and Potty's ultimate victory--will evoke roars of laughter.

PreS-K—Thea's bright, busy, and not-so-ferocious red dinosaur is back from his brush with bedtime in this new high-energy offering. In the style of "Dinosaur vs. Bedtime"(Hyperion, 2008), the narrative sees many liquid challenges for the grinning creature and he insists after each one that he doesn't need to urinate. Will the three-juice-boxes lunch win? Will the whale watering vanquish the dinosaur? And will he make it to the potty after his close call splashing in rain puddles? The digital illustrations have strong lines and bold colors, perfectly complementing the spare but spot-on text. It begs to be read aloud to a crowd of excited preschoolers who will love to chime in with their own "roars!" A surefire hit both for existing fans and new browsers.-"Alison Donnelly, Collinsville Memorial Public Library, IL"
