Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-A diaper being thrown into the trash kicks off this upbeat celebration of panties. A pigtailed protagonist skips across the pages. She proclaims the myriad choices that come with being a big girl, from the pictured days of the week set to a pair of frilly pink "Princess panties that sparkle and shine." The bright illustrations, set against a slate blue background, convey the youngster's excitement with a flurry of movement and many proud smiles. She takes a break from dancing and play to inform a baby sibling and a stuffed crocodile that they cannot wear panties, though mommies and grandmas can. At the close of the book the child addresses the listener, who presumably is also in on the fun and thus "a big girl, too!" This will make fine reading for newly minted big girls.-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

About the Author

FRAN MANUSHKIN has written over 50 books for children, including The Tushy Book; The Belly Book; Baby, Come Out (translated into 8 languages), Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book How Mama Brought the Spring, and the popular Katie Woo series. She lives in New York City.

More About the Author

My first children's book, BABY, COME OUT! was published in 1973. I love writing so much that I can't stop! My newest books are the popular Katie Woo series, the first chapter books about an Asian child. There are 25 Katie Woo stories, and now there are six nonfiction books teaching beginning readers how to write. The series is called KATIE WOO, STAR WRITER, and the books teach how to write a letter, a journal, an opinion piece, a poem, a narrative, and a research piece. They are perfect for the new Common Core Curriculum.
I'm also pleased that my books, BIG SISTERS ARE THE BEST and BIG BROTHERS ARE THE BEST, are helping young children adjust to a new member of the family. I come from a family of six children, so I know a little about growing families.
My board book, BIG GIRL PANTIES, is a romp about a girl who's leaving diapers behind for the pleasures of wearing panties like her mother and grandma and aunties! Another board book, THE TUSHY BOOK is a silly poem of appreciation of our behinds.

My 2.5 year old loves this book. She just transitioned into 2T girl panties and I thought this would be a great book to help her see and connect that it wearing panties means growing up and being a big girl. No more diapers... and these aren't for babies. Only big girls can wear panties.

Favorite line from the book:
"Mommies and Grannies and Aunties wear panties! And I wear panties!" She knows this line by heart. She also learned her days of the week with this book.

We just wish it were longer.

Format: Board book
Bye-bye, diapers! / I wear panties! // Happy panties! Snappy panties! / Panties! Panties! Hip hooray! Panties for every single day," says the dark-haired Caucasian heroine, who cavorts through the pages modeling undergarments with colorful prints and patterns. Midway through the book, she claims her "big girl" status and playfully scolds a baby (likely a sibling) and a toy crocodile for even considering wearing panties. On the last page, she calls the panty-wearing reader "a big girl, too!" The flat, pleasing, retro illustrations on slate blue backgrounds echo the text's tone nicely. While this book isn't going to convince girls to make the change without other interventions, parents will appreciate the rhyming, bouncing text's exuberant cheerleading. Here's hoping the boy's version of this brief tale (pun-intended) is not too far away.
This is one of a handful of diaper-to-underwear books that is fun to read more than once. (Board book. 18 mos.-4)

This is a great book to encourage little girls to WANT to wear underwear.
My favorite line-"I can prance in my panties and dance in my panties!"
My 2 year old daughter can say much of the story. It's cute, the pictures adorable and a fun book about the JOYS of being a big girl and getting to wear fun panties!

My daughter and I read this for a few months prior to potty training and she is now potty trained and knows every word. I like how this book celebrates a fundamental milestone with personality and joy. My daughter loves wearing "big girl panties" and this book really helped me introduce the idea of them to her long before we started the process. A must buy for little girls learning to say good bye to diapers.

Love, love, love this book. My Granddaughter is being potty trained and cannot get enough of this book. She also tells her cat that "kitty's can't wear panties" and anyone else she concludes cannot wear panties is told so. It keeps potty training on her mind. Well worth what I paid for it.

This book is adorable and beautifully illustrated. The book really helped with my daughter during the potty training phase of her life, and she especially enjoyed when the girl tells the baby and toys that they cannot wear panties as they are not big girls.
