Excellent potty training tools.
Lisa Folk
If, like me, you have an older toddler, who understands the concept of using the potty, but isn't fully trained yet, this is a GREAT book!

We checked out all of them; this one is the Best!

We checked out all of them; this one is the Best! It covers everything in such a reassuring way. Various animal characters (appropriate for both girls and boys) go to the potty, illustrating that it's o.k. to interrupt what you're doing; everything will be there waiting for you when you get back, that it's o.k. to take your time, even read a book while you're on the potty, that it's o.k. to forget a step and have to go back, say, to flush, that it's o.k. to "not quite make it" and have a little mess on the floor. Our Curious 2 year old especially liked the section where the book shows what happens after you flush (cute diagram of the indoor plumbing). And at the end of the book, the characters even address the fear of growing up, reassuring children that using the potty doesn't mean they have to give up being little kids. It finishes off with a rhyme about listening to your body.

If, like me, you have an older toddler, who understands the concept of using the potty, but isn't fully trained yet, this is a GREAT book! My 3 yr old daughter just loves the idea of becoming a Toileteer. We read this book every day. So far, no other book has motivated her the way this one has. However, if you are just starting potty learning, you might want to get another book to go with this one, a book that would explain more about how to use the potty. I don't think this would be an effective book for a child who had no clue what the potty was. But for a child who has the basic idea down, and just needs a little reassurance, this is an awesome book. My favorite part is the end, where Luna reassures kids that they can still be kids, and Mommy and Daddy will still take care of them, even when they use the potty.

You or your child(ren) do not have to be fans of "Bear in the Big Blue House" to use and appreciate this very helpful book. (I'm lucky that it's my 2˝ year-old's favorite show). The pictures and words are uncomplicated and easy for children to understand, and I like that when covering the basic bodily functions, they used the words "poop" and "pee" rather than cutesy names. It's not really gender-specific, since it doesn't cover or show genitalia/ differences between boys and girls, but it handles everything else in a fun and educational manner. Parents may also like how it emphasizes wiping and hand washing after using the toilet, and it shows (with a clever illustration) where poop and pee go when flushed away. There's even a Toileteers Club that the characters form at the end, and the book comes with a Toileteer sticker as a bonus. There are plenty of reassurances along the way: that accidents happen, and that's normal and OK; that it's alright to leave what you're doing to go to the potty, and your things will still be there when you come back; and that giving up diapers does not mean that the other great things about being a kid--like cuddles and hugs and love from mommy and daddy--go away. The episode this is based on is also available on video, and is equally good. Very highly recommended, along with "Once Upon a Potty" (separate books and videos for girls and boys) and "The Potty Book," also separate for boys and girls.

I bought this book along with the video, in order to reinforce the toileting concepts detailed in the video. It works wonderfully as a companion book.

This is not a terribly effective book for training a youngster to use the toilet, but it is very reassuring and answers questions about the process. While I think it is too wordy for little ones, I like that handwashing and flushing are mentioned several times and the picture of the pipes taking the pee and poop away is interesting. Tutter, Ojo and Treelo all use the big toilet, and Pip and Pop induct them into the Toileteers. (A Toileteer sticker is included with the book.) In conclusion, Bear and Luna discuss how growing up doesn't mean you won't be cared for and loved.
Not the best book for teaching -- for that use Sears' excellent 'You Can Go to the Potty' -- but a gentle reassuring book for kids who might be a little skeptical about the whole process. Good luck, Toileteer parents!!

Both of my children love seeing the familiar characters from "Bear In The Big Blue House" in book form, but I believe this book works as well for kids who don't watch the show. The gentle way Bear, along with Luna, the Moon, deals with everyone's fears and anxieties on this subject seems to speak to the heart of children's fears about making this transition. This book was a great help in finally training my 3 1/2- year old who had developed a mental block on the entire subject. It gently reassures and addresses exactly the right things. We've seen the toilet training episode several times, and they love it, but the book gives you the option of taking it into the bathroom and reading it while your future toileteer is trying to make the leap from diapers to big kid. I would also read it to them before we started in the morning as well. My kids asked for this book over and over again, and it's still a favorite. Kids will love this book even after they are fully trained. In addition to being a very useful tool, it is highly entertaining. I can't say enough good things about this book.
