The Princess and the Potty by Wendy Cheyette Lewison, Rick Brown

The king and queen are at their wit's end — there's not a potty in the land that pleases the princess. In their comical look at toilet training, Wendy Cheyette Lewison and Rick Brown turn an all-too-familiar dilemma into a royal romp.

This was my daughter's favorite potty training book (ours, too). She related to it - she thought she was a princess and she had issues with using the big potty, too. Just like the King and Queen, we were frustrated and tried every potty in the kingdom!! Five years later, that book is in plastic, put away with other memories of her childhood for us to share with HER kids one day. Now starting to train our son and looking for good books. We were just quoting this book this a.m. as it is THAT fun & memorable. Hope to find one this catchy for a boy!

This book may be better for an older child because the story is a little long. It is SO funny, though. My 3-1/2 yr old son thinks it's funny, but I actually bought it for my 27-month old daughter. It's a good reminder for parents who are pushing their daughters to potty-train, though: "The princess will use the potty when it pleases the princess to use the potty," and not a minute before! No matter what kind of fancy potty you try, it's ultimately up to the child!

As I began reading this book about a little girl whose royal parents buy her every color and pattern potty imaginable to get her to potty train, I was a bit worried my child would begin demanding her own 'pink potty'. However, as you read you discover none of these bribes work with the little girl-she simply doesn't want to (sound familiar? It did for me). Anyway, only the thought of soiling the princess' pretty, new undies gives her the desire to run to the potty in the end. And it is then that she discovers she doesn't need any of those fancy potties, the closest potty will do(which is the plain, old potty)! Now, my daughter couldn't care less about pretty panties when we began to suggest potty training. She appeared fully capable and she was over 3 years old but no desire. No bribes worked for her-the panties, new toy, etc. It finally got to the point where we calmly told her that the store was simply out of her diapers and so if she continued to refuse to go on the potty then that was fine, she would just have to do her business on the floor and then Mommy would show her how to clean it up and wash her clothes. She cried a bit but she did not want to wet herself after feeling it full force a couple times and we never looked back! This was her favorite book and it is so cute she actually continued choosing it in her nightly read selections for some time after potty training. The Sesame Street Too Big For Diapers is excellent as well-although I had a girl version that I don't see here on line. It is simple but my version tells a kid how even when they are playing, if they feel they have to go, go right away then come back and play(most kids once trained still procrastinate because they don't want to miss anything so I was glad this was addressed)! Very clear text for little ones. Anyway, would reccomend this Princess and the Potty to keep the task at hand foremost in their little minds and then one other for more specific step-by-step instructional which can tend to be not as attractive for them to want to read. Good luck! If you stick to it and let them feel the few messes and help clean up, you'll succeed!

My 2 year old daughter loves this book, she even requests that it be read each night. The book even helped me realize that she will use the potty when it 'pleases' her to use the potty and not to push her. In my opinion this is one of the best 'potty' books out there for both the parent and the child. And the story line is adorable!!

This has to be the cutest book ever. What an enjoyable way to teach toliet training to a child by an adorable story of a princess who won't use just any old potty she has to have the best. She tries every potty available in the kingdom and none are good enough until she really needs to use the potty.
