PreS—Both books feature the same smiling, bald baby. In the first book, the toddler has to "go potty." Intimidated, the child investigates the cat's and dog's solutions. Several sound effects and wiggles later, the youngster gives the potty a shot with eventual success and accolades. In Tubby
, muddy footprints and an obviously dirty child let readers know that it is bath time. The excited youngster has a grand time playing with bubbles and toys. These appealing books feature simple text, bright acrylic illustrations, and everyday situations that are certain to engage the very young.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
