Booklist Review

PreS. Here's an offering from the group that produced 11 books on parenting and child care for adults. This one is directed to potty trainees, though the subtext and the sidebars are for adults. The book begins with a several-page note advising parents that the training can last anywhere from two days to two years and pointing out how to tell when children are ready to begin the process. The text generally hits the mark in terms of packaging its information, but the tone veers between an almost cloying babyishness ("poo-poo goes bye-bye in the toilet") to more sophisticated sidebars for the "very curious" ("Why do boys have a penis and girls a vulva and vagina?"). The cartoon-style artwork is child-friendly, but it may not suit adults who are faint of heart. "Poo-poo" is tossed in the toilet, and "pee-pee" puddles on the floor. The back matter includes a list of parenting resources in books and on the Web. This is almost two books in one, and there's plenty of encouragement for both children and parents. --Ilene Cooper


Publisher's Weekly Review

The four food groups are reconfigured into "green-light," "yellow-light" and "red-light" foods in Eat Healthy, Feel Great by William Sears, Martha Sears and Christie Watts Kelly, illus. by Rene Andriani. This addition to the Sears Children's Library puts a kid-friendly spin on nutrition and presents a handful of easy-to-prepare recipes (can you guess the "red-light" foods? Among them: marshmallows and "cheez puffs"). "Notes for Parents and Caregivers" opens the offering and a pullout poster is included. Also available from the same team: You Can Go to the Potty.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-The first book is a recitation on basic nutrition that explains why it is important to eat the right foods. The authors make suggestions for "green-light foods," i.e., those that are good for you and that you can eat as much of as you'd like, and describes "yellow-light" and "red-light" foods. They also explain certain additives such as dyes and preservatives. Potty simply provides the facts that parents can share with their little ones. The material in both books is factual, but not particularly exciting or inspiring. The watercolor illustrations are acceptable and work with the instructional texts, and each volume has a fold-out poster. Prefaces for parents and caregivers provide some general advice on the topic at hand. Supplemental purchases.-Roxanne Burg, Thousand Oaks Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
