About the book

Let me say upfront that I adore this book. I love when a special book crosses my desk to review and I can feel in my heart that it is going to be winner.  This is one of those books.  It is funny and witty and kids will just eat it up.  It is formatted in board book fashion so wee ones will be able to handle it well and use it often.  

This mission of toilet training is done in true military style.  The army sergeant drills the trainees giving them the proper protocol to get the job done right.  The diaper-clad soldiers respond to his directions with a snap of their heels and a smart salute.  By obeying  orders they achieve success.  They must locate the target: the toilet, deploy the payload: pee and poo, destroy the evidence: flush,  and then make a clean getaway: wash hand thoroughly, leave no germ behind.  Mission accomplished!  

The sergeant cautions them that the war is not over yet.  They will have to fight to keep their pants from being soiled but soon...

"Every stinking one of you will be a full-fledged, underwear -wearing, POO-TENENT!" 

Shock (oh oh I pooed/peed myself)... to Aweeee!!!! ( I must relieve myself) and Victory!!!! ( I won the battle my underwear is still clean!!!).  

The author has included a fun sticker chart at the end of the book so  little ones can plot their progress starting as a Private, then Specialist, Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, Major, Colonel and finally the highest rank of General.  Hurray!!!   Look mom and dad I answered the CALL OF DOODIE!!!  I won the war.  I highly recommend this delightful book.
