Potty Training Books for Tots
There are some great potty training books aimed at Toddlers to introduce them to using the potty, wearing pants and growing up, start reading them before you go for potty training so that the concepts of using the potty, doing wees and poos and wearing pants are familiar to them before hand. So here you go - my five favourite potty training books for tots.
Pirate Pete's Potty and Princess Polly's Potty come highly recommended they are both interactive and go through the Potty Training Process from explaining what Big Boy's and Girl do instead of using a nappy, choosing a potty, getting some pants and doing wees and poos and all with the added noise value which J loves so much.
As the Zoo is one of our favourite places to visit, when I saw Zoo Poo at the Library it was perfect for us. It goes through in rhymes that all Animals do poos from a Giraffe to a Chimpanzee and then finishes with what we do by going on the Loo (it's very English in that respect). On one of my last visits to the zoo a friends son had announced to her that Giraffe's didn't poo and when I read this it just reminded me of him.
Another very English title for this book Who's in the loo?is about who's taking time in the toilet while a little girl and boy wait to go, getting more and more desperate. It's written in rhyme and again uses Animals and the various things that they could be doing that would be taking them so long. Very funny I was even laughing and the illustrations are great as well.
I want my Potty by Tony Ross is another really nicely illustrated book and I love the way that it finishes which I hope will help J to realise that accidents do happen but it's not a problem. I haven't read any of the Little Princess books before but I think that I will start to add them to T's collection as they tackle some of the common Toddler challenges like washing hands, going to bed and missing mum.
