100 Best Children’s Products—Dr. Toy

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
If you need a book to help encourage toddlers to use the potty and to say good-bye to diapers, this one may be helpful. The book focuses on growing up, and part of that process includes using a potty. It explains in simple but not graphic illustrations the difference between girls and boys and the importance of washing your hands after going to the potty or toilet. The part that may be the most useful, is the statement that "Using the potty takes practice." The families in this book are very supportive—they clap and cheer and lavish praise for successful behavior. What is the goal? Why, to get out of those diapers and start wearing underwear like the big kids do! The last spread is for parents and caregivers, and it gives plenty of good advice about when to start potty training, selecting the right potty, motivation, and hygiene. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

    My kid likes it!

    My 18 mo old loves this series. We started with the biting book from the same author and graduated to this one. Almost immediately he got interested in sitting on his potty. Now, I don't think he'll be trained anytime soon, but at least it got him interested.
