Children's Literature
The final word, you might say, on the subject of potty training, this 95-page book explains intricacies on the subject you may never knew existed. Beginning with a description of how the urinary and digestive systems work, through taking care of baby's bottom, bladder and bowel control, steps in training, to special situations that might alter the accomplishment of this milestone, the attractive layout and understandable text should answer all questions a parent could possibly ask. Color photos and drawings help lighten the heavy subject matter, and the tone is one of encouragement, helping anxious parents to relax. Several pages of commonly asked questions and an index are provided. Especially appropriate for a pediatrician's office or for parents having anxiety about this issue. 2003, Firefly Books, Ages Adult.
