My toddler (18 months) loves this book and takes it to her own potty to sit and read! She's not yet learning to use the potty rather than nappies but this is great for getting her ready. She learnt to say 'undies' from this book and that makes her laugh :-)
I do change the word 'diaper' to 'nappy' when I read it and the first line ('I have to go potty') makes me cringe at the grammar so change to 'I have to go to the toilet / potty' or 'I need a wee'.
It is a fun little book and my little one love looking through it and imitating different funny facial expressions. I do read 'nappy' instead of the American 'diaper'. Did she got immediately potty trained after reading the book? The answer is a no. We are starting it slowly and the book is just one of the things that would help.
I bought the american version by accident. I believe there is an english version that's much less cringe worthy (got to go potty anyone?). I change out the american words (go potty, diaper) when I read it.
This has been a great tool to introduce potty training. It's nice that it's not really gender specific. An it makes my toddler laugh an laugh. The first day we got the potty she sat on it an demanded this book to be read over an over to her. She did do a wee in the potty! She loves it.
Honestly I'm VERY upset and disappointed. I bought this book blindly because it had such great reviews. It's nothing more than maybe okay. It's not put together well at all. It doesn't explain the animals pottying as well as it should have. Honestly I just feel like it was grunts and pictures. It should have been more. My son LOVES books even if they aren't good books but he HATES this one. He's not picky AT ALL too! Plus I wasn't expecting it to be so big and heavy. It's not a brick or anything, but it's the same thickness and weight as my hard back chapter book, but is actually a little bigger than my chapter book. It's crazy. I TRULY hate and do not reccomend this book at all. I can't believe I wasted the money honestly. I should have found another or saved up for a better one.
Getting my little tyke to be diaper free was one of the biggest struggles for me as a Mum! But as I always tend to do, when in doubt - find a book for it! This story by Leslie Patricelli is a great conversation starter to get your kiddo on the path to potty training. Simple, to the point, funny illustrations, and easy enough for a baby to understand ☺️ Be warned though that you are likely to face loud public announcements of “Mumma! I did potty in the pot like the purple baby, are you proud of me?!” 😂😂🙈
Was disappointed that this is written for a US audience, so uses the word diaper instead of nappy, and wasn't overly impressed by the 'story'. My 2 year old daughter, however, loves it, and has started to use the potty since we started reading this. So I guess it has to get a thumbs up!
