This story was written to help children remember a few things while they're in the bathroom: wipe their bottom, pull up their undies, pull up their pants, and wash hands. The story should be read each day. It's a good idea to read the story *while* the child is in the potty. The adult should read the story and encourage the child to ask questions, read along, and point to the pictures. It's a good idea to "practice" these skills immediately following the story.
