PreS—Spector, a family physician, approaches toilet training with humor in this unconventional picture book guide. Addressing only boys and their parents, he recommends many playful styles of peeing—as a firefighter, superhero, rock star, and more. These can involve props or simply a child's or a parent's creative banter. Some parents may object to the "Free Style" recommendation to pee outdoors "anywhere, anyplace, anytime," and "Mommy Style" (sitting down on the toilet) might seem sexist to others. This title is not for every family, but some will find it funny and helpful. Of particular usefulness, even for parents of girls, is the author's note; the advice here is credible and reassuring. Spector's six rules are spot-on for those who accept the no-pressure approach to potty training. Rendered in acrylic paint, the illustrations skillfully capture the text's amusing tone. The child depicted here is older than the toddlers in most potty training picture books, and parents of three-year-old boys might welcome seeing an older child learn to become diaper-free. An unusual but intriguing offering.—Maralita L. Freeny, District of Columbia Public Library
“Sure, potty training is important, but how many books emphasize how to urinate with style . . . The lesson is clear: Pee with flair.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Spector, a family physician, approaches toilet training with humor in this unconventional picture book guide....Rendered in acrylic paint, the illustrations skillfully capture the text's amusing tone.” ―School Library Journal
“Chung's acrylic and Photoshopped illustrations gleefully interpret the simple four-step instructions for each technique. Spector provides reassuring advice for parents at book's end....Along with Mo Willems's Time to Pee, this book hits the mark.” ―The Horn Book
“A promising strategy that fosters imagination skills along with an important physical one.” ―Booklist
“Parents...will want to hold up our peeing protagonist as a model. And what little guy wouldn't want to try urinating on command when it's obviously this much of a hoot.” ―The Bulletin
