Grandmas Take Note: A New Picture Book about the Potty!


A post by picture book author and mother of four, Laura Gehl:

One of the things I am looking forward to about being a grandma is getting to revisit all the stages my kids have outgrown. Like the stage when a baby falls asleep on your chest. And the stage when a little one holds on to your hand and toddles unsteadily along. And the super-fun stage of potty training.

Wait. No. I’m NOT looking forward to revisiting that one. And I don’t know anyone who has enjoyed potty training the first or second time around.

But I am truly excited to have a new book out that might make potty training a little more fun for parents and kids alike: PEEP AND EGG: I’M NOT USING THE POTTY.

In this book, the fourth in the PEEP AND EGG series, Egg is absolutely determined not to use the potty. And no amount of lemonade, running water, or toilet paper tutus is going to change her mind. Until things start to get a little uncomfortable….

Amazon Link: Here’s the link for PEEP AND EGG: I’M NOT USING THE POTTY (which will  take you to Laura’s other wonderful books, too).

Giveaway: I’m giving a copy of the book to one lucky Friend for the Ride winner. For a chance to win, please enter a comment by March 20. Thanks!

Coloring sheets for this book, and all four Peep and Egg books, are available on Laura’s website:

Laura Gehl is the author of popular picture books including ONE BIG PAIR OF UNDERWEAR (illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld), MY PILLOW KEEPS MOVING (illustrated by Christopher Weyant), and the PEEP AND EGG series (illustrated by Joyce Wan). Her next release will be I GOT A CHICKEN FOR MY BIRTHDAY (illustrated by Sarah Horne), a story about how an unexpected and unwanted gift may turn out to be the Best Present Ever! Laura lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland with her husband and four children. Visit her online at

  1. We have one more grandchild that needs to go through the potty training days. My daughter hopes the pre-school will get the job done.


  2. My granddaughter is just about to start potty training and another grand baby on the way….appears to be a sweet little book that could come in handy!


  3. This got lost in my inbox. Glad I’m not too late to enter! Looks great and perfect for my yet-to-be-trained granddaughter!
