This book is one I've always recommended as one that is great as a potty training tool. In particular, it helps to reinforce the concept to your toilet-training toddler that wearing diapers at night is still "ok" even when they wear underwear during the day. Below is an excerpt from www.Amazon.com from another reader who found the book helpful:
This book is brilliant!, August 18, 2005
I bought this book along with two others for my 18 month old simply to introduce the concept of the potty to her. The first book I bought was called My First Potty Book and it was pretty bad. The second one I bought was Once Upon a Potty which is excellent, but a little too advanced for my daughter. Then I bought A Potty for Me which was perfect. The pictures are big and colorful and the amount of text on each page is perfect for a short attention spanned little girl, not to mention the story is very sweet and well written. The pacing is just right. It doesn't simply tell you how to use a potty, but goes into the anxiety a child might have as well as the trying and geting it wrong and the practicing and then the trying and getting it right.
My daughter asks me to read this book to her over and over again, every night. As for the lift the flap concept, it's not exactly what you would expect. It's more like a page that folds out to another page. Picture a storybook with a centerfold on each page. I guess that's the easiest way of describing it. That little piece of interaction helps keep the little ones' attention.
This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
