Once Upon a Potty is best used as a companion volume to a child's new potty. I wrote this book when my own child was toilet training to help him better understand the process. My son was encouraged and excited by this story. It motivated him to make the developmental leap from diaper to potty.
Learning to use the potty is often a lengthy process, taxing the patience of both parent and child. When success finally comes--and it should come in its own good time, without undue pressure or haste--it enhances the child's confidence and pride. He has taken another step toward independence. He sat on the potty as a little child and got up feeling ten-feet tall.
It's one small step for mankind, but a giant one for your family.

The illustration style is really cute and colorful and simple.
The "chamber pot" that he uses as a potty looks nothing like today's potty chairs or toilets, so I'm not sure my child ever made the connection.
This is a super cute book and my parents used it for me to help potty train me so I am passing down the tradition! ;-)

All these potty training books are a waste of time in my opinion. Potty training will happen only when the child is ready. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Emily
