Title:The Potty Book for Boys
Author:Alyssa Satin Capucilli
Age: 2 years - 3 years
This book is a must have for the whole potty-training adventure - Especially if your son is like mine. He was so squeamish about the whole thing – this book has cute pictures (keep an eye on that crazy teddy) and makes using the potty sound like a lot of fun. And maybe my son wasn’t the only squeamish one. I wasn’t interested in some of the more explicitly worded (and illustrated) books. This book is helpful in getting the ball rolling and was a great springboard to talk about things the way we felt comfortable.
Another tip if you have a child that is “slow to warm” to the potty – do try having him sit on it with ALL his clothes on for a while until he adjusts. I felt very silly about it but it did help.
Note: There is, of course, a girls version as well.
