Product Information
Clang! Clang! Clang! The fire truck is pulling out of the station. But wait! Where is the firefighter going? To the potty! Even firefighters go to the potty!

Toddlers are uneasy about toilet training. And in most cases, even if they know they have to go, sometimes they are too busy to bother. In this hilarious gate-fold story, each person--from a firefighter on the way to answer a fire alarm to a zoo keeper on the way to feed the polar bears--stops what they are doing to go to the potty. With humor and no pedantics, toddlers learn that everybody uses the potty.

      Comments about Even Firemen Go to the Potty:

      I gave this book two stars b/c it is a good concept and has sturdy lift-the-flap pages with nice illustrations. It tries to normalize the idea that everyone* uses the potty. It doesn't get more than two stars b/c it is so blatantly gender-biased. Of the ten pages, each depicting a person in a different profession, only one is portrayed as a woman. The woman, a doctor, has a ponytail as the only female attribute; it may well be a man with a ponytail. The two authors, both women, specify five of the characters as men in the text (plus one male animal). The other five are gender-neutral. Bad move on the authors' part, worse move on the illustrator's part, and terrible judgment by the editor!
      Girls will not identify with the characters; apparently only adult men go to the potty, with the exception of an androgynous doctor*. My two year old son likes the book and gets almost entirely gender equality messages at home; therefore I won't return it.
      It is not marketed as a potty book for boys; those have their place and I do recommend "My Big Boy Potty" by Joanna Cole, which also comes in a girl version.
      I do not recommend buying this book. We're not in the 1950's anymore.
