While "Diapers" does not spend time on specific anatomy, it addresses the difference between boys and girls (we have a boy). And it also is clear about what they are doing in simple, easy language. "Girls sit down to pee and poop. Then they wipe and flush. Boys do the same, and also can pee standing up" - or something to that effect. Our son could, and often did, recite the whole book verbatim.
This is part of a great series of books targeting specific issues with kids, along with great pictures.
The end of the book had potty training pointers, which I do remember reading. But I referred to the potty training pointers more often at the back of "My Big Boy Potty." Not quite sure why, except perhaps because this was the first book we started with, and once our son had memorized it, he moved on to requesting "My Big Boy Potty."
The good thing about that combination of 2 books is "Diapers" covers the whole thing in a short, but easy to understand way, at a higher level with a positive tone. Then "My Big Boy Potty" spends more time on the individual steps focusing on an individual boy with whom the child can identify and learn the specific steps for getting to pee and poop.
I try to skip the "boys can also pee standing up" part to try to prevent her from getting the idea to try to pee standing up. But it doesn't always work. The rest of it is great, and I like that they specifically include washing your hands afterward. I not one for separating by gender, but I get it now why, in this case, it might be helpful. It would be fine for boys since they can do both, or a household with boys and girls to show the differences. But in our case, it only confuses her.
