Praise For Goldilocks and the Just Right Potty

A classic fairy tale is cleverly reworked for those transitioning from diapers...thanks to the easy language, this book proves ideal for a wide range of potty training ages (a nice change of pace from potty books that truck in complex sentence structures). While most potty books strike readers as too old or too young, here's one that almost everyone can agree is (you guessed it) just right.
—Kirkus Reviews

In Hodgkinson’s cheery, textured, mixed-media illustra- tions, Goldilocks is pictured as a round-eyed, towheaded tot with an independent streak...Alongside the celebratory stars and rainbows in the neatly patterned pictures, there are some cute visual nods to the classic “Goldilocks” tale (a meal that looks too hot, too cold, just right; three teddy bears of varying sizes). And stick around for the back endpapers, where the actual three bears make a spirited cameo.
