About the Book:
Laura Gehl’s comical potty-training standoff will be familiar to young children and beleaguered parents. With a return of her popular and irrepressible sibling chicks, last seen squaring off over bath time, Gehl’s Peep and Egg: I’m Not Using the Potty brings us to one of the inevitable and seminal moments of parenthood – potty training. With a familiar emphasis on the word “NOT,” Egg refuses repeated overtures (and clever segues) by Peep to try the potty.
It’s unclear whether it’s the toilet paper (“too tangly”), the seat (“too slippery”), or the flushing (“too noisy”) that Egg finds most objectionable, but whether for one reason or all, it’s a no-go. However, the resourceful Peep has one more device in play – which is that Peep keeps handing Egg glasses of lemonade and after a time, Egg realizes that when nature calls, sometimes you can't say no.
The bestselling Peep and Egg series includes Peep and Egg: I’m Not Hatching, Peep and Egg: I’m Not Trick-or-Treating, and Peep and Egg: I’m Not Taking a Bath. Kirkus Reviews has deemed Gehl’s newest release, a “good book to help little ones who feel a bit chicken about using the potty.”
