Product Information
Every little boy's graduation from diapers to the potty is always a very important moment--and one to make both parents and toddlers proud! In The Potty Book, Henry needs to have his diapers changed so he can go out and play. Then mom and dad bring home a big box, and Henry is anxious to open it up and see what's inside. Is it a rocking chair? A bed for Teddy? No, it's a potty--which means that it's time for Henry to graduate from his diapers. This gentle and humorous little story is charmingly illustrated and told in verse. Little boys will enjoy looking at the pictures and having the story read to them. Meanwhile, they'll start getting the idea that it's time for them to grow up, exactly like Henry. So that at last, they'll be able to say--"I'm off the potty!"

My son loves Henry and his potty

By Mom of a two year old

My son loves to read about Henry and his potty! My son reads this book while he uses his little potty. Although my son is in the very beginning phase of being toliet trained, the story and pictures keeps him entertained while he waits to do his duty!

Poor Grammar, Awkward Rhymes!

By mom of a 2 yr old

from WA

Site Member

I bought this book based on the recommendations of others, but I'm pretty disappointed in it. Maybe my standards are too high, but I don't want to read books to my kids that include incorrect language usage ("march off to the potty like ME and Teddy do"). Some of the rhymes seem a little forced too. The only thing I like about this book is that it uses the same vocabulary for bodily functions that our family does. (I think all these books should come with a set of stickers, so that each family can use its preferred terms!)

Don't waste your money

By Anne, mom and teacher

The rhyming in this book is poorly written. There's even a grammatical mistake--you can use the potty like me and teddy do! The illustrations are cute, but there are books out there that are so much better than this one.

Positive Potty Book

By Allison, mother of a wonderful "almost" 2 year old

from Aldergrove, BC, Canada

Site Member

I just bought "The Potty Book - for boys" for my son yesterday and we have already read it several times. My son is 22 1/2 monthes old and I thought that this book was more on his intellectual level than several of the books out there. I also loved it because of the rhyming and my son is very musical so this book is really appealing to him. The book is well illustrated as well as being very encouraging and positive even when Henry does have an accident. We will continue to use this book as a teaching tool throughout this process.

My daughter loves this book. She was very fearful of the potty. We would read this book very often, and she really enjoyed it. It is a great introduction to the potty.

Perfect Bathroom Reading

By Jaimee, mother of Julianne 2 years

from Dallas, Texas

When my daughter turned 18 months we went out and bought books, videos, a potty and her own toilet paper...This was the first book we bought and it is her long standing favorite. I like it because of the cute rhymes, and it is just short enough to hold her attention.

My daughter loves this book. It talks about being a big girl. Even when Hannah has accidents, her parents encourage her to not give up.

Not for short attention spans

By Ana, mother of one

My 21 month old daughter has had this book for about 3 months and I don't think we have ever made it all the way through. She prefers "Sara's Potty" which is just the right length for her. Perhaps when she is older she will be more interested in this book.

My daughter absolutely loves this book! She loves to sit on the potty with her teddy, just like Hannah. It has a great sing-song format that is easy for kids to pay attention to. A must have.

I would recommend this book. My son is two and a half and wants to read this book every night. I am hoping that the book will get his interest back in using the potty again soon.

MY COPY IS WELL WORN

By Sheryl, mom of one almost ready to pee pee on the potty!

from Manitoba, Canada

My daughter loves this book. Maddie often says "potty Book" just as she is waking up. It is fun to read. The pictures are really cute and the story rhymes. I think this is the perfect book for potty training. I hope that Maddie will be marching off to the potty just like Hannah really soon. A best buy!

A great buy

By Marli, mother of 2

I highly recommend this potty book for boys because it was such a success for our son. He would sit on his potty while my husband and took turns reading the book to him. Our son would be so excited about going to the potty afterwards. Best potty book (for boys) out there!

Great starting point

By mommy to one and expecting #2

from CA

Site Member

We really liked this book. It's easy to read and my dd quickly identified with little Hannah. However, I think it is a little "too" accepting of accidents. My dd will say, "I had an accident like Hannah" instead of focusing on the fact that Hannah was ready to wear panties. I'm afraid she thought accidents were acceptable. So, I would just reinterate that although having a few accidents is "ok", they should still try very hard not to have too many.
