During a final parenting class a while ago we were discussing potty training and I recommended a couple of great books to share with your kids when they show an interest in using the toilet or potty.
The first is the wonderfully frank and yet sensitive book by Fred Rogers called Going To The Potty (buy at amazon.com or buy at amazon.ca). This is an older book, but still terrific. It is a big hard cover book that is filled with large photos and simple plain-speaking information and instructions that make it all very concrete. We miss you Mr Rogers!
The second was not so instructional, but a favourite for my kids called The Princess and the Potty (buy at amazon.com or buy at amazon.ca, which tells the story of a princess who would not use the royal potty, so all the servants bring her potties of varying styles but none are to her liking. Then one day they bring her a pair of fancy pantaloons so she wears those instead!
If you have a favourite potty book, let us know about it in the comment section below.
