Every little boy's graduation from nappies to the potty is always a very important moment-and one to make both parents and toddlers proud! In "The Potty Book", Henry needs to have his nappy changed so he can go out and play. Then mum and dad bring home a big box, and Henry is anxious to open it up and see what's inside. Is it a rocking chair? A bed for Teddy? No, it's a potty - which means that it's time for Henry to graduate from his nappies. This gentle and humorous little story is charmingly illustrated and told in verse. Little boys will enjoy looking at the pictures and having the story read to them. Meanwhile, they'll start getting the idea that it's time for them to grow up, exactly like Henry. So that at last, they'll be able to say- "I'm off to the potty!".

This book is fine, and I can see why it appeals to some families., but I'm not a fan. I think it's probably better for older kids with more grasp of language who just need to see more of the process while learning.
The "plot" is overly complicated. There's a lot about what the new present could be, having accidents (because for some reason this potty-training child's parent are not letting him wear a pull up diaper), calling grandma, how his diaper fits well etc. I end up just skipping a bunch of pages because my 18 month doesn't need all that.
And despite all that, it's really ambiguous as to what's actually happening. He is just excited about his potty after looking at it.
It also bothers me that the rhyming doesn't quite flow. Rhymes for kids are a great learning tool, but the writing feels forced and disjointed and doesn't get into a smooth rhythm.
So how is it different from its competitor "Potty"? "Potty" is better for younger kids. The character is a non-gendered baby rather than an older kid. There are very few words, so my son and I just talk and laugh about what's going on in each page. We have pets, so seeing what cat and dog do differently is actually pretty helpful. And he gets really excited with the "tinkle, tinkle, toot" sound effects. Basically, he thinks "The Potty Book" is a nice story like lots of his stories, but when we're done reading "Potty", he often drags me off to the bathroom to try his potty as part of the game.
The potty training in three days has some merit. I actually picked and chose from several different books incorporating what I thought my little guy would find the most helpful.
We got this doll:
Drink and Wet Doll
This doll is very sweet and cuddly. My potty training toddler loves it.
It IS true she does not hold her pee to make it to the potty. LOL. BUT, if you lay her down and feed her, quickly put her on the potty, a lot will get caught in the potty.
Every time she peed on the floor, we just said, UH OH and cleaned it up. And pretty soon my toddler was saying UH OH. (Just like in the book.)
The things my son liked the most:
Pull-ups Time to Potty app (even though we used underwear instead of pull-ups)
Getting candy after each try
A box with presents for going five times
Batman underwear (still his favorite)
He also preferred the small (Ikea) potty. We bought this seat cover and he hates it and wont use it at all:
Potty Step Up Seat
This book is very loved:
My Potty Book
Overall potty training is a success. We had the goal to try to get him potty trained over a five day holiday weekend and it worked pretty well.
We took him to the potty every 45 minutes using the Pull Ups app. We gave him lots of fluids. Offered him candy each time he tried. Before the weekend was up he was telling us he needed to go. Each time he went, he got a sticker. After five stickers he got a small present out of a treasure box.
Things he didnt care about:
pooping in the potty (LOL)
The pooping was harder, because, in his words, "it's gisgusting" to poop in the small potty but he does not like the big potty at all. We got it worked out and he's going but it usually takes quite a bit of encouragement. He's not having accidents, just holding it in. LOL.
I decided not to hold it against the book that her favorite part of the book is where Henry says "Woops, I am too late!" ... oy vey... wish me luck.
It's a cute book, I'm happy with my purchase! :-D
Most importantly, this book really seems to have made things "click" for him. We went shopping for "big boy" underwear shortly after reading this book to him for the first time, and he seemed to make the connection. He also discusses Henry's diaper and his accidents while we're reading the book. He engages with the story in a way unlike any other story.
I agree with the reviewer who commented on the unforgivable grammar. There is one portion of the book where it says "Teddy and me . . ."! I honestly think I'm going to take a sharpie to the book and fix it, because changing it to "I" doesn't mess up the rhyme or the rhythm. It's very odd. However, it doesn't affect my star rating and I suppose when my son is older, it would be a good way to teach him about grammar. (On the other hand, I hope that we won't be reading this book at the same time that he's learning about grammar, because that would probably mean that we'd be potty training at age 5!)
