Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K Andrew's mother and father are careful to ask him beforehand, ``Andrew, do you have to go pee?'' Andrew always answers, ``No, no, no.'' Any parent can guess the rest. As soon as he's firmly belted in the car or immobilized in a snowsuit , Andrew bellows ``I have to go!'' His family is annoyed, but kind, about the inconvenience, and Andrew surprises everyone by getting up at night to go to the bathroom with grandpa and not wetting his bed again that evening. The cartoon characters are expressive and nice. A potty-trained child from three to five will enjoy the humor in this preschool vignette, but like a family photo album, this subject has limited appeal. This is an attractive, well-designed, sturdy package, but an ever-so-additional choice. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Public Library, Alexandria, Va.

Review

“... 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.”—Library Journal

“Preschoolers who are in the throes of toilet training, or who have just attained this milestone, will appreciate Andrew’s predicament and Munsch’s gentle exaggeration ...”—Canadian Reviews

I thought I was getting a good deal from Amazon and to find out a week later - that the 13 books i ordered were tiny books :(
I wished i had read the reviews first - but no one read a review for buying books right? Amazon should really state right in the beginning that they are mini pocket books and not the regular size ones. I wouldn't have bought them if I had known about the size. They are for Christmas presents - now I feel so stupid.

Munsch did great job of making normal life hysterical. It was like reading my sister's life back to her. The repeated 'no,no,no' response from Andrew is easy for kids to pick up and 'read' along. It's scary how true this story is. Every parents has lived this nightmare. It's funny when it's not happening to you...

A wonderful, humorous way to present a subject which is much talked about but remains to be one of life's mysteries. How does one go about potty training? Our seven year old child with special needs became potty trained after I purchased this book(as recommended by a friend). We were able to share the humor of the story and relate it to our situation. It brings a smile every time its read!!

Format: Board book
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!

The book is a good one. The only issue I had was that the size of the book is the mini Annikin Series: which I did not realize until it came.

Upon closer look the About the Annikin Series: is there but below the fol on most browsers.

perhaps some sort of graphic attached to the cover preview (mini book or something like that)

Thanks

I only purchased this book to get the total to 25$ for free shipping. Some reviews complained about the size of the book, however the listing clearly shows the size. I will mail it to my nephew, and am pleased it is so tiny. The story is not what I expected but cute just the same.

This was the first of the many Robert Munsch books I have given my grandchildren. It remains our favorite of all! Children love humor about things they think are a bit taboo (don't we all?) and this delightful and very true to life story never fails to bring gales of laughter to both the girls and me. My personal favorite line is from grandma. "I never had this problem with my children."
For adults it really brings back memories of those time consuming snowsuit dressing days, potty stops in the middle of nowhere, and so much more!
Potty training isn't a crisis and it certainly isn't a scandal. Robert Munsch shows us it's ok to lighten up and laugh about real life!
