Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Incorporating the charm of the familiar Muppet characters as toddlers (all identified by "Little" before their names) and the magic of the late Jim Henson, these four inaugural titles in the Sesame Street Toddler Books series are bound to be equally appealing to youngsters and parents. In easily accessible language, Ross addresses, in each volume, a single topic of importance to the two- to four-year-old set. I Have to Go gently offers reinforcement to those involved in toilet training, as Little Grover dashes past all of his pals in search of his mother. She leads him to the potty, and tells him how proud of him she is. The themes of the other books are: the importance of using such words and phrases as "please" and "I'm sorry"; the satisfaction that comes from accomplishing tasks like building a tower of blocks or getting oneself dressed; and the wisdom of succumbing to sleep at nap time. Gorbaty's vivid, clearly defined pictures focus on the engaging characters without the distraction of busy backgrounds. The books' "super-sturdy" pages are just that, and should hold up well to eager little hands. Ages 2-4.

From the Inside Flap

Little Grover can't stop to play as he hurries home: he has to go. His mommy understands, and she accompanies him to the bathroom, where he goes all by himself.

I bought this book as a potty training aid for my 23 month old daughter and was disappointed. Although the book is very cute and she enjoys reading it, it has very little potty training value as Grover spends the majority of the book running past his friends saying "I gotta go" but you don't know where until the end of the book.

When I worked at a daycare center, with toddlers, I read this book regularly as a way of teaching the children to communicate when they had to use the bathroom. Because the book used repitition with the phrase, "I have to go!" it was a wonderful way to teach the children what words to use and avoid accidents. I loved the book and plan on reading it to my son over and over again.

Not only did it help to speed up the toilet training process it's also a great bonding book for moms and sons. At the end of the book, Grover-mom tells Grover-son what a big boy he is and how proud she is that he goes all by himself. Well, my son just loves that part and when we get to that page, I repeat the same words to him and substitute his name for Grover. He has been going potty for several months now but still likes to read this book.

The book has a good message for kids learning to potty -- but it's too long! That's good if you want to keep them sitting long enough to potty, but not so good if you're trying to teach pottying. My nearly 3 year old son wandered off while I was trying to read it to him -- and he likes the Sesame Street crowd.

I thought this was a great aid to help my 21 month old son. I have read this no less than three times a day for about a month, many times back to back at his insistence. He thinks Little Grover is a mover and a shaker, which gets and keeps his attention. It may not be for everyone but I found it helpful.

I bought this book on recommendations and I was disappointed. Maybe its better for boys, but my child was not interested in reading it after the first few days. She viewed it as just another sesame street book.

My 2 year kids really like this book and it is motivating. They love seeing their muppet characters learning to go potty too. As a parent, I didn't like that you didn't find out where he has to go until the end. My kids are unable to read so I change it as I read so that each time grover is saying "I have to go to the bathroom." instead of just "I have to go."
