Oh No, Gotta Go [Potty Training Book]
Everybody has been in this classic dilemma: You need to use the potty, but you just canĘt find one anywhere!
Here's an exuberantly illustrated charmer that combines a common childhood experience and a new language. The young narrator is in the car with her parents, when she says, "Where is un bano? Donde esta? I really do need one," I told mi mama."
Thus begins a frantic chase through town, looking for a bathroom. Since it's Sunday, most places are closed, but the family is directed to a blue restaurant, where the girls and ladies in the long line gladly let the little girl go first. Elya does a fine job of making the poetic text work while incorporating the Spanish into the rhyme scheme. Not every word is made clear through context, but most are, and there's a glossary appended for the rest.
Karas' pencil-and-watercolor artwork captures the sense of motion and urgency--the lines of the text swirl around the pictures in a go-go fashion. (Quoted from Ilene Cooper)
There has been a second edition to this book, Oh No, Gotta Go #2!
