One thought to “Favorite Toddler Books”

  1. Hi Miss Jennifer,

    I just found your blog while I was looking for infomration on early literacy and potty training. What a thorough and friendly site!

    I’m a librarian too, and I appreciate your blog as a storytime resource.

    In the public library where I work, I noticed that potty training books were popular with toddlers (and their grownups) and alphabet books were popular with the same crowd. A potty ABC seemed like a natural.

    That was the original germ of the idea for _Danny Is Done with Diapers: A Potty ABC_, new this spring from Albert Whitman.

    I hope you will take a look. 🙂
