Ages 1-3. This book is very reassuring, leaving the impression that little Michael or Ashley (or any child) will be able to succeed at potty training. Cole's matter-of-fact text points out that practice makes perfect, while Chambliss' watercolor illustrations show smiles all around--on Mommy and Daddy's faces, on the kids' faces, and even on the stuffed animals' faces. There is no yelling, no scariness, and no one gets in trouble for having an accident. Michael, with his stuffed bear, and Ashley, with her stuffed bunny, easily transition from diapers to big-kid pants, and their satisfaction at accomplishing this feat is very apparent. The text is the same in both volumes except for one added line in the boys' book: "Daddy showed Michael how to stand up when he made pee-pee." The last page includes "Tips for Successful Potty Teaching," which is directed at parents. Kathy Broderick

I don't agree with pushing kids into doing something they don't seem ready for...and I definitely did not want to embarrass him about it. But he was the last kid in his pre-school to still wear diapers and one boy teased him about it once. It KILLED me! Still, I felt he would do it when he was ready.
But then I bought this book... He LOVED the book. He loved the pictures and the story about Michael. I made it very interactive with him. He asked me to start reading it 2-3 times a night. The weekend after we received the book, we took him to buy big boy underpants...just like Michael did in the book. He wanted to wear them...like Michael...and that was it! I sent him to pre-school with his underpants on (which I knew was a big risk) and he did not have an accident all day! And he went on the potty!! When he came home that day and told me he "pooped" on the potty, I was skeptical. That is...until he went into the bathroom at home, shut the door, and then proudly came out, grabbed my hand...Read more ›
We also looked at the Capucilli book "The Potty Book for Boys" which came with a DVD (because we love the "Biscuit" books). Our son also liked that book, and liked the movie. I found the book to be too drawn out and the movie interminable, but clearly our son did not share my opinion. But he liked the movie more than the book, and "My Big Potty Book" was requested more often than thet Capucilli book. We also looked at "Once Upon a Potty" which had the best description of anatomy, but the most irritating language for pee and poop. And it also seemed the most dated - the potty chair in it looks like a chamber pot!
"Diapers are Not Forever" and "My Big Boy Potty" were the best combination.Read more ›

Cute enough; among the better potty book options. I loved that they have a boy and girl version to personalize it and make it relevant. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Aquasloth
