Elephants do it large, mice do it small, people do it medium-sized. Some do it while moving; others do it while sitting. Animals do it outdoors; humans do it indoors on a toilet. This book gives the whole scoop on poop, a great introduction for potty-minded tots.
Written from a child's perspective, this lift-the-flap, rhyming book portrays the awkward and tentative first attempts of using the potty. Watch the child play, sit on the potty, eat, sleep, and sit on the potty some more until, finally, success. Get your child to join in and repeat, "I'm so proud of me!"
The author's trademark matter-of-fact, reassuring tone is perfect for this guide to the fundamentals of toilet training. It covers when to start, how to get your kids ready, transitioning to underpants and the inevitable accidents. Color photos and a guide for adults help both kids and their parents ace this milestone.
Based on William and Martha Sears' philosophy of "attachment parenting," this book is based on the theory that going pee-pee should be pressure-free—in other words, don't push your kids to go potty. There's plenty of good advice here, accompanied by kid-friendly illustrations.
Potty training doesn't get any more fun than this book, with a cute bear, tabs that "unroll" toilet paper, sound chips that simulate the sounds of a toilet flushing and a running sink to wash hands, and a place for your child's "Potty Graduation" photo.
