    We have read this a million times since this summer. G loves all the books by this author that he has read and this is his all-time favorite potty book. It's important to have a favorite potty book! He gets very invested in the protagonist baby's adventures figuring out whether or not to use his potty, and when he finally does, G gets super excited and yells YAY while clapping enthusiastically. It helps that that page has stars (he loves stars) all over it and it says "I DID IT!" which is one of G's favorite announcements, potty or not. Oops, is that a spoiler? Sorry. We definitely recommend this one to all babies becoming interested in potties.

    Patricelli's books are so darn cute. Elliott just LOVES the baby featured in many of her colorful board books, probably because of his adorable mug and because she can relate so well to his antics. This is the one potty book she has really fallen in love with, and makes us read again and again while she sits there so cute on her OWN potty. In fact, we were reading this one that one amazing day when she - just like the character she loves - actually peed in her little toilet!

    Mommy only reads this to me while I'm sitting on my toilet, because it's a special book about learning to use the toilet. If I go to the toilet without it, I always get up and run around and find it and then come back, because I like to read it. Did you know the baby in the story is also reading a book about pottying while the baby tries to potty?

    This was a cute and fun and goofy board book, perfect for the process of potty training. It's guaranteed to get a couple of giggles, and the artwork is simple and bright and matches the overall tone of the book, with funny facial expressions. 4/5 stars.

    I enjoy this book a lot because its a book to have for a tool. I remember reading this book to my kids in my classroom and to help them learn a lesson. This book would be a great book to use for a lesson especially with a younger group.

    Leslie Patricelli's books are beloved by toddlers. My grands want to read this one over and over because the humor and endearing illustrations help them see themselves. This particular story assists with toilet training as toddlers view the hardships and rewards of using a toilet.

    If I had a child & I was in the potty training phase, I would read this book every single day with them. I love Leslie Patricelli and all her books just make me smile inside & outside & all day long.

    The 3 year old will read this book all day. He won't do what the character does in this book, but he finds it hilarious! I have to admit it was a cute book.

    Artwork and prose aren’t terribly appealing to me as the reader, but toddler loves this book. And it has really helped with potty-training.

    My son loves this book, especially the sound effects page. We always make them dramatic and he giggles. It's a great potty-training aid!

    This book was so helpful when starting potty training. The only potty book that kept my kids interested and wanting to use the potty like the baby!

    Some kids are more literal then others, and sometimes you have to have a different format in learning. My son could use the potty but he just didn't know why he should. So it was really hard to be successful. I ended up getting a bunch of books but this one was my favorite because it showed sequence and really helped him understand why.

    When to ditch the diaper? Only a toddler knows when the time is right, but when the time gets close Potty will be there to encourage our young future potty users along. Go along with Baby as he discovers what it means to go on the potty instead of outside like a dog or in a litter box like a kitty, but on the potty like a big kid. From potty time with book in hand and kitty and doggie napping at his feet all the way to Baby’s first pair of underpants. Show your toddler just what it means to lose the diaper and make time for the potty.You name it, we’ve tried it. Two different potty’s, treats, cheerios, m & m’s, stickers, many many books, and more. Nearly every trick you can think of to get our dear sweet Turkeybird onto the potty and out of the diaper, but no way. That is, until his little sister picked up this book and took matters into her own hands. Littlebug adores this book, and so do I.In classic Leslie Patricelli form with bold illustrations and a funny story kiddos are introduced to a new world of possibility on their terms. Which is exactly what Littlebug loves about this book. She’s recently been on a ‘me do it!’ kick. No more mom stepping in to help with anything, she wants to do it all herself. And I’m actually torn by this. In some ways it’s a bit more difficult and takes more time, but in a few weeks I know our world will be completely different and quite possibly much better. And the best thing about all of this is that big brother has taken note and doesn’t want to be left behind. So, I’m currently the momma of two potty-training toddlers. Crazy! I blame much of that on this extremely fantastic book!With bright colors, a cute character and a very funny story little ones learn that there is a better way than pooping in a diaper. There’s the Potty! Not only, no more diapers, but big kid underpants with all sorts of fun pictures on them. This is the perfect book for toddlers and even those tough-to-train kiddos. By showing what can sometimes be a whole lot of waiting, but a very ‘big kid’ thing to do, toddlers soon realize this may be something worth trying out. Without a doubt this would be my first recommendation when it comes to potty training books for kiddos. A fun story with a great way to teach little ones basics!Originally reviewed & copyrighted on my site, There's A Book.

    This is a great "potty" book. We used this to encourage potty training, and would read aloud while our 2 year old was sitting on the potty. Although the illustrations in my opinion, (and possibly the opinions of other adults as well) are mediocre/very simple, and the words are very few, that is OK. It is simple enough to keep the attention span of a tiny tot, and the pages are colored bright enough to invoke interest. The words are few and easy to remember and quote along to. Also, the great thing about this little book is the hard material used for the cover and pages. These books are virtually indestructible and while not 100% waterproof, they can rather easily be cleaned. So many books during the terrible twos are torn apart or crumpled to no saving. This book is built to last for a toddler. It is admittedly not my first choice or favorite book, but I'm not the main audience. Sometimes, what appeals to adults, is not the same as what appeals to kids. The is just the reality of life. The main audience is the kiddo, so on that note, this was a definite winner!

    Of all the potty training books around I like this best. The picture of the parents faces at the end when the baby does "tinkle tinkle" is the best! The simplicity is perfect

    April 2011 - This was an alright potty book. It falls into the general introduction to the potty category. The baby tries to decide where to go potty, then waits and waits until he goes in the potty. No info on the finer points, like toilet paper or hand washing or body parts. This seems like a good one to read when just introducing the idea of the potty, not for the hard core middle of training.Nov 2011 - So, now that we starting some potty training, I must adjust my rating. Natalie loves this character and asks for this book almost every potty visit. Now that I know more about potty training, its clear this book covers the basics: getting to the potty and waiting once you get there. I love how the baby has so many different expressions for Natalie to comment on. "Tinkle, tinkle, toot" is also a great sentence to explain what's happening without pictures. Lots of praise at the end.

    I still haven't decided how I feel about this book. I understand the reasons for writing it and I'm hopeful that in a couple months it will prove helpful to my potty-training son. But there's something disturbing about two panels of drawings of a baby on a potty ending with the baby asleep. And I'm not sure I would use the same word choice to describe the "events" that are the center of the story. If the euphemisms aren't your euphemisms, then you either have to take the time to try to explain them to the toddler (defeating the purpose of using euphemisms), or you just have to accept the blank stares and move on to the next page (defeating the purpose of the book). I may revisit my rating and review, but at the moment I'm thankful that my son's interest in the book was relatively short lived.

    Having a younger one potty-training, I didn't really want a book that makes a huge deal about being a "big" kid using the potty. This is a cute book with the baby realizing there's an option other than going in a diaper. My daughter laughs at the page with the baby doing the potty dance! She also loves the last page (undies!) for pointing out the various designs since she knows what some of them are (stars, puppy, fish).I don't care for the page with the multiple image spread or the "tinkle" "toot" part since we don't really use those words (I just sub in ours). But overall it's a cute book and I find it funny to watch my little one sitting on the potty reading a book with pictures of another baby on the potty. Hopefully it helps her "get" it.

    Leslie Patricelli, Potty (Candlewick, 2010)Of the batch of library books we got out this time (and as I write this, I'm three batches behind, I think), Potty was both my favorite and the Bean's. The illustrations are engaging and fun, our toddler narrator has a quick wit about him (and wonderful facial expressions), and the story is very simple without ever feeling like the author is talking down to her audience. We read this one at least a dozen times the first time we got it out of the library, and if it's as popular after a second round, we'll end up adding it to the permanent collection, even if the Bean is already well into toilet training at this point—we just plain like it at book time. Fun stuff indeed. *** ½

    Potty books are enough to make a person reconsider parenthood. This is a fairly unobjectionable entry in an otherwise repellent genre.I had hoped to finish civilizing my kid without having to resort to potty books. Alas. It's pretty clear that he learns from books, so we acquired a couple. The experience was somewhat redeemed by the utter absence of expression on his face when we first read it. I imagined a sort of toddler version of "what the hell?" He also dislikes the sound effects -- not liking sound effects in general -- which makes me think better of his taste. But it does seem to help, which was the point.As soon as the civilizing process is complete, I'm smuggling this out of the house in the dead of night and will abandon it on a street corner.

    I can't say this was the only book we read on potty training, but this one played a big part for my son. He especially loved the surprised/astonished "what was that" face. And Undies!!

    Life is changing now when I take the three kids to the book store; even the one and a half year old wanders around and wants to pick her own books. This was the first book she chose to read. This book was a great read for her and for the older two. They remembered their training time. The story is a fun read and well written. The illustrations are fun and the bright vibrant pallet will appeal to the young readers. But only time will tell if it will help, but either way an entertaining book the family will read many times over.Read the review on my blog Book Reviews and More.

    At this point, I have read many potty books for toddlers. This is by far my favorite. These days, many parents follow a specific method for toilet training their child/ren. This book does a great job of illustrating how things work generally, without giving too much specific information that could possibly conflict with a family's chosen toilet learning method. Plus, the text and illustrations keep things light, which is important! Toddler independence is emphasized, without being too heavy-handed. Good work Leslie Patricelli, and thank you!
