Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for toilet trainers Robert Munsch is wonderful! I Have To Go! is just one example of his amazing ability to get down to a child's level. I work as a child care provider and find that Munsch's book is a hit for all the toilet trainers. The children often re-create the events of the book in a playful way when they do "have to go!" This is a book the children ask for over and over and, amazingly, I never get tired of reading it to them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! This story is so inapproriate for children. Teaches them to be demanding and controlling. Wish I'd never bought it! What a waste of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Book! This is my Favorite Children's book. My parents, aunts and Uncles used to read this book to me as a child and i still remember it today. Its a great book for your children....who knows... you might enjoy reading it as much as your children enjoy hearing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can You Believe It? Can you believe this is one of the most frequently banned books around. Rediculous. I bought it for my daughter and she loved it.

From Our Editors

Despite all the anxious preparations and inquiries of his parents, little Andrew maintains his own individual sense of timing and appropriateness. Preschoolers who are in the throes of toilet training will appreciate Andrew's predicament. Full-color illustrations

Editorial Reviews

Martchenko''s exaggerated illustrations are a splendid complement to Munsch''s direct and pleasantly repetitive narration. The author''s popularity is already widely established, and this title should do well both in libraries and bookstores serving children of preschool and primary grades.

Appropriate for ages: 3 - 5
