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.

Basically, you want this book to help teach your child to let you know what to say when they need help. My daughter used to get stressed out and not tell us she needed to use the bathroom just because she wasn't sure what to say to let us know. She'd have an accident and feel so bad. I do not recommend this if your child is non-verbal or cannot sign what they need to tell you. If your child is signing I would suggest showing him or her the sign for needing help with the toilet rather when Grover says, "I gotta go". I told my daughter a number of things she could tell us and she now chooses whichever one she likes.
Purchase alongside other (more informative) potty training books if your child likes Sesame Street a lot and you believe it will help. If not, you can definitely skip this, as it's non-essential.
The pages are VERY sturdy and pretty much indestructible unless you have a pair of scissors. They wipe clean if you have a spill or your child colors on them!!
We have 'Naptime' (blue with Big Bird on the cover) in this series and my daughter has loved it since she was less than a year old. This is a fun series for little kids.
I'm 15 years old and this is still one of my favorite books. Grover for LIFE!
