After all, this is an important developmental step for all children and their parents.
Looking at the images together, opening the flaps and reading the story to their children offers inspiration for conversations between parents and children. This book makes going potty fun!

About the Series

The Author

Frauke Nahrgang was born in 1951 in Stadtallendorf, where she lives today with her husband and two children. She has been working as a primary school teacher since 1976 and enjoys teaching school beginners most of all. At school she began to write texts for beginners, and she has been writing children's books since 1987. Frauke Nahrgang watches children very carefully and is interested in how they make contact, talk and communicate with each other. She transfers these observations strikingly into the stories in her picture books.

The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
