Book Review: Betty Bladder Makes a Big Decision by Justin Noble


The night shift in the Body Village is a relaxing time, but there is always work to be done. When Betty Bladder finds herself taking in a lot of liquid waste, she does her job to alert Raymond Brain that she needs to release the liquid. But, when Raymond doesn’t respond, she finds herself having to make a difficult decision. Betty Bladder Makes a Big Decision teaches children what is happening in their bodies when they wet the bed, how to help prevent wetting the bed, and why it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

Available on Amazon.


My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All of the opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Betty Bladder Makes a Big Decision is a My Body Village book. These children’s books are about different parts of the body because it “takes a village to make a healthy child.”

It’s night time and Betty Bladder is getting fuller and fuller and she’s ready to explode. She tries to let Raymond Brain know but he is so busy that he doesn’t hear her calling. She finally decides that she can’t wait any longer and that it is POTTY TIME. 

Later, Raymond Brain tells Betty Bladder that she made the right decision and that it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. He then says he’ll suggest less liquid before bed and going to the bathroom right before bed.

Betty Bladder Makes a Big Decision is a cute and colorful book that teaches children in a fun way why they wet the bed and gives some suggestions that may help to curtail bedwetting. It also teaches that they shouldn’t be embarrassed or ashamed when it happens. It’s a great book for parents to read to young children.
