Worth a try,
This review is from: Everyone Poops (My Body Science) (Hardcover)
I'm having a horrible time getting my 3 1/2 year old son to use the potty. I've tried it all - rewards of various types and all sorts of "fun" stuff (stickers, getting a toy from the "potty prize bag", peeing on Piddlers, which are styrofoam-type fish that disolve in the toilet, food treats, reading books, decorating the potty, using a favorite cartoon character toilet seat, glow in the dark pull-ups . . .shall I go on?) I saw this book at a local book store, and thought some of the pictures were a bit gross (specifically the one with the lion eating), but my son likes it. He now tells me that he takes a big elephant poop. Now if I can just get him to take that big elephant poop on the potty and not in the diaper!! This book at least has him talking about where he should poop, which is a bigger show of success than I've yet to witness. Even though it might be a little yucky to some adults, I think it's worth a shot for anyone who may be struggling with toilet training. It's at least worth a shot.
