To be honest, I initially chose to browse through this picture book as the title caught my attention; it's not everyday that one comes across such an amusing and frank one. However, as I looked through the pages, the illustrations and vibrant colours further piqued my interest.

"I Need to Pee" is without a doubt an entertaining and fun read. But interestingly, with the inexplicit theme of public hygiene it serves to be more than that. It reminds us Indians about the state of infrastructure in our nation, and calls for action on the same. Rahi's solution for public hygiene is sustainable and will definitely urge young readers to become more intrigued by this topic.

by Abhiram shastry on I Need to Pee

The book was hilarious whenever she went to pee somebody got scolded by their manager. The book was all about a girl who needed to pee whenever used to drink. I loved the book.

This book is about a little girl who needs to pee every time and she has a book which tells the different needs for peeing.For eg : You should be confident when you ask your teacher for going to the washroom and many other points.she also tells the trouble she had when she travelled in the bus,local train and even flights.

When I read the first few pages, it sparked a lot of curiosity. I wanted to read more and more. I finished reading in about 15 minutes. The illustrations are nicely done. When I didn't follow any paragraph, the sketches helped me understand.

Rahi is the main character. She doesn't like using public toilets while traveling as they are not clean most of the times. Her 'Book of Important Quotes' comes in handy. The book is a must read for all PYP students.

This is a picture book that instantly sparks curiosity among children and adults alike. While Rahi has to often visit the washroom to answer nature's call because of her love for beverages, she lives in India which is infamous for its lack of clean public toilets. She hates using the stinky ones she's forced to when she is travelling. Rahi's "Book of Important Quotes" is a brilliant concept designed by the author to lend humor to the story. The illustrations, bound to appeal to readers across the board, strike an appropriate balance. They allow you to take delight in the sketches, but do not distract from the story. The book, which at first, may seem like a light-hearted read for children, actually has a very important theme tied to it. It raises the importance of public hygiene in a developing country and how in the bigger scheme of things, it is the common man who suffers due to a lack of basic infrastructure.
