As far as potty-training kidlit goes, I’ve found that the clearer and more direct the book — both in terms of the text and illustrations — the better, since it’s important for kids to understand and relate to it. Bonus points for cute illustrations and some, um, toilet humour.
This cheerful and upbeat book features the titular bear going around to ask his animal friends if they wear underwear, with most of them proudly replying in the affirmative, and telling him the different varieties of underwear that they wear.
Toddlers who are going to be or are being toilet-trained can read this fun and unintimidating book for encouragement if they are still resistant to the idea of giving up their diapers for underwear.
The Big Potty Book is a cute book that shows a little boy, Josh, getting on his potty. Eh, so what? But wait, other animals are also shown on potties that fit their different butts, so that gives a cute twist. Great for encouraging kids to use the potty regularly by making it seem de rigueur almost.
