Ferdinand the Frog awakens one night to a very damp realization. Something doesn't feel right in his bed at all! What can the little guy do to fix the situation?
Luckily for Ferdinand, he has a friend who has experienced the same thing. Ferdinand learns that potty training is all about confidence. There seems to be one huge obstacle, however. Ferdinand is afraid of the sound the toilet makes when it's flushed.
In Ferdinand Uses the Potty, by Jay Tucker, our yellow frog friend faces his fear and he will encourage your child to do the same! Ferdinand Uses the Potty is wonderfully illustrated by award winning artist, D.E. West.
