Currently, my son Luke and I are enjoying Everyone Poops, originally published in Japan as part of a My Body Science series. The book is simplistically drawn and explains to young children that since everyone eats, everyone poops. And, trust me, you will see every possible example of this. The book contains drawings of a veritable Noah’s ark of animals and their own unique waste.
Perhaps your child would be more inclined to ditch those diapers if his heroes were potty training, too. Did you know that Caillou, Dora and several of the Muppets are also in training? Who knew?
Then there are the his & hers potty training books:
- Once Upon a Potty: Boy, Once Upon a Potty: Girl
- The Boy Potty Book, The Girl Potty Book
- Big Boys Use the Potty, Big Girls Use the Potty
- My Big Boy Potty, My Big Girl Potty
- The Potty Book for Boys, The Potty Book for Girls
I wish all you frustrated parents and caregivers the best of luck and hope that you find what you need at your local library. And just remember that all kids eventually learn, which is why they don't make Huggies in a size 13.
