The mood is upbeat and fun, the format is engaging for children. Terms used are 'poopy' and 'tinkle'. Handwashing is not mentioned.
This is a happy little book that should be used in conjunction with other, more informative books, such as Sears' "You Can Go To the Potty".
I don't see how any child could resist pulling down squares of toilet paper, pulling down the pants of the illustrated kid, having mom pour the pee into a toilet, etc. The pop-ups in the book are sturdy but I did reinforce some delicate areas of the book early-on (with tape).
The Potty book for Boys / Girls by Alyssa Satin Capucilli was/ is also a much loved title in our home but (another book received as a gift) Once Upon a Potty by Alona Frankel gathered dust.
We have read almost every potty book available on the market as of 9/2003 (over two dozen!). Most fit into two categories: INSTRUCTIONAL books that introduce the skills needed to master the potty; and those that are primarily ENTERTAINING, for children who understand what is supposed to happen on the potty, but need extra time to make it happen.
I think What Do You Do With A Potty fits more in the INSTRUCTIONAL category for the following reasons:
1) It identifies the purpose of the potty.
2) It specifies bodily functions ("poopy" and "tinkle" in this case)
3) Shows the transition from diapers to big kid underwear.
4) Includes the important steps such wiping, flushing, and hand washing.
For other activity books on this same subject, try Let's Go Potty by Moira Butterfield or Sara's Potty by Harriet Ziefert.
So what can you do with this book? Enjoy it again and again!
