A good book, though I have had to change several American words as I am reading. Has not encouraged my daughter any further with potty training. We still get 'don't like it!' when the potty is mentioned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed! 23 Aug 2010
By R. Loose - Published on Amazon.com
Do yourself a favor and check this book out from the library before you decide to buy. I grew up with Little Critter books and we've been reading them to our 2 year old most of his life. He just loves them! However, we just got The New Potty and I am not impressed. Truth be told, I don't like most of the Gina Mayer/Mercer Mayer collabs. The illustrations are not as well done and the stories come off as either preachy or a bad attitude. In this particular book, we have Little Critter narrating about his little sister's experiences learning the potty. It's full of comments about how it's "weird" that sister practices sitting on the potty while watching TV, how he doesn't think she looks any cuter than him, and how he thinks she still acts like a baby, even when Mom and Dad say she's a big girl now once she's successfully using the potty. Sorry, none of that is helpful in giving my son a positive potty-learning experience. He does not have any siblings to understand the sibling-rivalry comments, and I highly doubt at age 2 he would grasp them even if he did. I don't need him thinking he's "weird" for practicing sitting on the potty wherever he feels like. And I don't need him getting the idea that even once he masters this big step in growing up, someone might still think he's just a baby. We're going to have to skip over many of the lines or make up something different when we read him this book.
I wish Mercer had done a potty book long ago, on his own. His style of effortless, entertaining storytelling, while gently teaching life lessons, is sadly missing from these later books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Potty a Kid Favorite 4 Jan 2000
By Lisa Dael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son loves this book! We actually now have two - one for home and one when he travels to the sitter or grandparents' house, etc. The picures are colorful and attract your immediately. The story is simple and gets the whole family involved in the potty training process. It is very positive and easy to understand so little ones can follow the meaning. I (and my son) highly recommend it. My son feels it is a 'must read' when going to the potty.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Potty 2 May 2000
By Carol Dinsmoore - Published on Amazon.com
What a great learning tool! My daughter loves this book. She is successfully potty trained! Yeepee! This book describes everything, even the time when purchasing the potty chair. It even describes "accidents", which let her know that they will happen and that it is OK. I love the way the entire family helps with the potty training. This will be very helpful when my younger child starts potty training! Great book! Good luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worried That Your Child Will Never Use the Toilett? 7 Sep 2002
By M. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
We bought this book as well as several other books, when we noticed our child wasn't buying into our advice about how convenient it is for him as well as his parents that he use the toilett, we resorted to this method and it seemed to work all by itself with little influence from the adults. We simply sat down and read it to him and voila.. it worked. I have no idea which book hat the most influence but this was one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Can't Go Wrong With Little Critter" 26 Sep 2003
By ReadItDiva - Published on Amazon.com
We are huge fans of Little Critter, so I knew we couldn't go wrong with The New Potty. The story contains typical elements found in many potty books: introduction to the new potty, playing with the new potty, accidents, transition to underpants, and eventual success. What sets all Mayer books apart? The critters talk and act like real life children. And the illustrations are a hoot! Such as the look of terror on Little's Sisters face when greeted with the pink "Critter Potty." Or Little Critter hollering for Mom when his sister misses the potty and almost wets his foot. And that pet mouse...
We have read almost every potty book available on the market as of 9/2003 (over two dozen!). Most fit into two categories: INSTRUCTIONAL books that introduce the skills needed to master the potty; and those that are primarily ENTERTAINING, for children who understand what is supposed to happen on the potty, but need extra time to make it happen. This book contains a little instruction and a lot of entertainment. Try it!
