3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Eve T. O. Warren on 27 April 2007
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book for introducing your little ones to using a potty. The hard-wearing cardboard figure on the front page is attatched by a strap to the book, but can be removed and inserted into each page. The book speculates on several rather funny uses for a potty, before showing its' real use on the last page. Here, the baby figure is inserted the other way around into a cut-out shape so he/she sits on the potty. Very clever! My eighteen month-old loved it!

This was bought to encourage my 2yr old grand daughter to use her potty. She had previously been quite frightened by it. She particularly liked that she could move the baby from page to page. This helped her enormously and in fact she was potty trained in 8 days! I would highly recommend this.

I am afraid I was quite disappointed with this book. I bought it when my son was 18 months and was starting to show signs of being ready for potty-training. I thought this book would help me get across the message of what the potty was for, but unfortunately it didn't. The story is about a toddler who has a potty but does not know what it is for, so she uses it as a storage box for her toys, a bowl for her dog's food and as a boat. On each page we find the potty being used for the wrong things, and it is only the last page which shows the little girl sitting on it, but that's it. No further explanation or cheering at the fact that she is finally using the potty properly. My son never took much notice of this book. I found "Pirate Pete's Potty", which I bought together with this one, a lot more educational and also much more appealing to my son.

Good book, but could be better 13 Aug 2010
By Earthnut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love idea of the book. It's a thick board book, so easy for coarse motor skills, and the story is simple and fun. BUT the baby is only cardboard. The first time I read this with my 6 month old on her potty, she loved it and stuffed the cardboard baby in her mouth. By the end of the potty session, the cardboard baby had already lost half the color on one side and the edges were swollen. The first time using it!!! The baby should be plastic or wood, not paper. I'm going to probably make a new baby out of wood, that can take more abuse, because I like the book otherwise.

UPDATE: I made a replacement baby out of wood and this book is my 11-month-old baby's favorite book out of all her books! I like it a lot now that the baby is sturdy. It's geared towards actual babies more than any other potty training book I've seen.

At 15 months, we retired this book for fear that our daughter would get bad ideas about playing with her potty. We replaced it with Begin Smart Lily's Potty and I Go Potty! (Rookie Toddler) which are both simple straightforward stories, don't belabor diapers and being unsure and accidents, and cover handwashing. If I were to get only one book for a young potty trainer, it would be Lily's Potty / Pete's Potty.

my little baby loves this book 9 Sep 2009
By j23 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book when my boy was about 3 months old because we EC. The baby looks alot like him, and we also have a little red potty that looks like the one in the book. I show it to him when he's going potty. He smiles when I get it out. Sometimes we don't have it with me, I'll start reciting it and he gets a kick out of that. I was impressed when he stopped trying to eat the baby and instead tries to put the puzzle piece back on the page and really seems to enjoy it. It's a short and simple book but we've gotten alot out of it!

Positive Potty Training Book 5 May 2011
By K. Carson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm glad I have this book, but it is not my favorite for either illustrations or text. It is, however, a very potty-positive book that is appropriate for young training or EC, and for that I like it a lot! In this story, a baby explains to his/her dog and bunny what the potty is all about. The baby on the front is a cut out on a red ribbon. There's a puzzle space in each page to put the baby, and on the last page, you sit him/her on the potty. it is targeted at younger trainers (baby's potty, not what-a-big-kid potty), so it might be more appropriate for your one or two-year-old than for your three-year-old.

Pros:
Gender neutral
Cutout is a fun idea, my daughter really likes that part of the book!
Straightforward message: the potty is where we pee and poop (some stories concentrate a lot on babies doing other things with the potty, and some parents might worry about sending mixed messages that way)
Appropriate for EC families

Cons:
General style: I don't find either the illustration style or the writing to be anything special. There's nothing particularly WRONG with it, just feels as though someone said, "I'm going to sit down and write a few page book about how to use a potty" and did it without really giving it any creative thought beyond the cutout.

For cute book with more interesting text and illustrations (in my opinion), I like "Potty" by Leslie Patricelli. That one makes me smile every time! But it's nice to have a small collection of books next to the pot, and this one keeps my daughter entertained with the puzzle baby.

Fun book! 26 April 2008
By R. Bev. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My infant loves this book! And it makes her daddy and I snicker, too - it is very cute. And the jigsaw baby on the ribbon is a very nice touch.

Waste of money! 9 Jan 2009
By Black Fire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Do not buy this book if you expect your child to learn something. Also, the puzzle piece baby illustration is very annoying. It even covers up words you are trying to read. Only a couple of lines actually teach kids what the potty is for. I am VERY SORRY I wasted money on this book.
