The book is full of bright, friendly illustrations. There are explicit depictions of body parts, urine, and excrement: this enhances the educational value of the book, in my opinion. There are a number of nice touches, like the pretty flower pattern of the mom's dress.
Although I have only seen the "girl" version of the book, I understand there is also a "boy" version. "Once Upon a Potty" is a good book for families going through toilet training, but would also make a nice light-hearted gift for anybody.
Knowledge is power, even for a 2 year old. They have to know what's what on their body and what goes where. This book is extemely helpful in broaching those subject with your toddlers.
If you think this book is too explicit, then God help you when it comes time to talk about sex when your kids get older.
As a father whose two kids are now potty trained (thank goodness!), I might offer this advice to parents of toddlers: There's about a gazillion different approaches to potty training. Don't get bothered by some friend who tells you about what is supposedly the "right" way to potty train. Every child and every family is different, and you have to find what's right for you.
