Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Munsch I Have to Go! is an absolute Munsch classic! This story of a little boy who refuses to pee when his parents ask him too rings so true to life and is no doubt drawn from Munsch’s own experiences as a parent. Recently re-released as a slightly updated board book, Munsch’s trademark text is condensed to make it more preschool friendly, and is combined with the original illustrations from his long-time illustrator Michael Martchenko in the style that has become so associated with Munsch’s classic works. Andrew won’t pee before car trips, he won’t pee before getting dressed up in a snowsuit (ah, Canadian parenting!), and he won’t pee before he goes to bed. I’m a huge fan of Robert Munsch’s ‘vintage’ titles from the ‘80s, most likely because I grew up with them myself! Even if I try to set that bias aside, I think this is still an entirely delightful story. My seven-year-old agrees with me, and it’s the first Munsch title that she’s felt eager to read to herself and to her little sisters. Our children love the classic Munsch-style repetition, the easy to chime in with response lines, the onomatopoeia (sounds written as words), and the hilarity of the ensuing situations. This is just a keeper – enough said. All in all I Have to Go! is still just as good as it has ever been, and is ready to please a new generation of toddlers, preschoolers, early readers, and parents alike. There’s a reason over a million copies of this title have been sold in it’s various forms! Reviewed at quiverfullfamily.com
