Once Upon a Potty Boy by Alona Frankel


Once Upon a Potty Boy by Alona Frankel

The all-time favourite, now in a sturdy board book. There are four million children under the age of 5 in the UK and all of them will need to be toilet trained. This classic book has already helped millions of parents get their children through a life milestone with ease and some entertainment too. With Once Upon a Potty, a parent reads the book to their child or allows the child to read it while on the potty. Not surprisingly, the book takes some wear. This new board book edition will withstand such heavy use and survive the occasional water spill too. This is THE potty training book. It has it all, bright graphics, simple language, fun story and an anatomically correct hero. With an edition for each gender, the book relates directly to the child, making the potty-training process relatable and easy to understand.


[Review for previous edition: ] My little boy is one of those kids that has to understand the why and how of things. If he doesn't see the point of something, he simply won't do it. Once Upon a Potty-Boy shows him step by step and explains things in a way he seemed to comprehend. At least now he's willing to try the potty. And that's a big step in the right direction. Once Upon a Potty-Boy shows...step by step and explains things in a way [my boy] seemed to comprehend.--Tami Brady TCM Reviews (10/01/2010)
