About the Book and Author
For toddlers who are ready to try sitting on a potty George the Wombat is a story to assist them (and their carers) with what can be a laborious and rather frustrating process.
George wants to play, but Mummy Wombat tells him he has to use the potty before he leaves. George is finding it very difficult until he gets some advice from his friends and Papa Wombat and he is finally successful!
Originally published in Czech, this book has been expertly translated by Alexandra Büchler and is illustrated in colour by Galina Miklínová.
Dylan’s enjoyed this book as George is a furry creature which is different to the other potty books we have been reading where the characters are human
George tries to use his potty and comes across a few challenges! His mum tells him he has to use it before he is able to go and dig a burrow in the forest. So, George gets to work. The opening of the book includes a fact about Wombats which was a great introduction I thought.We meet a few of George’s friends on his journey through this book and the cute illustrations to accompany the words.
We have been enjoying reading this with Dylan as he is going through his potty training journey. George’s potty is green which looks just like Dylan’s which he found funny! Dylan’s enjoyed this book as George is a furry creature which is different to the other potty books we have been reading where the characters are human / kids. The illustrations of George being upside down by his potty and various other angles – Dylan found cute and amusing.
Overall, this is a great book to add to a collection for potty training but it can be used for every day reading with your toddler. The story is great and had Dylan asking ‘why?’ a lot!
