Posted on April 5, 2021 at 2:52 PM by Amy Rutten


Amy talks about some of the great resources for children (and their caregivers) who are ready to tackle potty training. 

time to pee cover
Time to Pee!, by Mo Willems
Toilet training has never been such an adventure as when it is introduced by popular cartoonist Mo Willems. With his signature humor, the author gently leads children through each step in the process that will finally bring them to their emancipation from diapers. Featuring a crew of funny mice holding up signs with the text, children will be amused and inspired by this hilarious new picture book. - from the publisher

call of doodie cover
Call of Doodie; by Donald Lemke, illustrated by Bob Lentz
Transform toilet training into an action-packed, fun-filled mission! There comes a time when every toddler must answer the call -- the call of doodie! Their mission: identify the target (the toilet), open fire (pee and poo), and make a clean getaway (wash those hands). With each success, little soldiers move up the ranks, from rookie privates to full-fledged poo-tenants! - from the publisher

even superheroes use the potty
Even Superheroes Use The Potty; by Sarah Crow, illustrated by Adam Record
Young ones will enjoy this funny, rhyming board book that teaches great bathroom habits with the promise that all their heroes use the potty too. Good potty habits can be celebrated each time kids put the lid down, flush, and wash their hands. Toilet-training harmony is just pages away! - from the publisher

Her 6-step, proven process to get your toddler out of diapers and onto the toilet has already worked for tens of thousands of kids and their parents.
