It Hurts When I Poop! A Story for Children Who are Scared to Use the Potty by Howard J. Bennett

Ryan is scared to use the potty. He's afraid to have a poop because he's afraid it's going to hurt. When Ryan's parents take him to visit Dr. Gold, she engages his imagination with the story of Bill the Coyote's messy house. She also shows him what happens inside the body, and explains how different foods make using the potty easy or hard. This story, along with Ryan's poop program, will help young children gain the confidence they need to overcome this common problem and establish healthy habits.


At last, someone has provided parents with a fun-filled, non-threatening approach to help children who hold in their bowel movements. Dr. Bennett's book will be a permanent fixture in my waiting room. - Benny Kerzner, MD Chairman, Department of Gastroenterology, Children's National Medical Center

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
