To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Cute book. Love the idea of a tally sheet or sticker chart keeping track of when the child wins (when the child uses the potty) or when the pee and poo win (when the child doesn't make it to the potty in time, has an accident, or goes in their diaper). Most little kids like a fun little competition or game, and this is a fun twist on the classic sticker chart just when the child uses the potty. It rhymed and held my kiddo's attention. Nice full color pages, good quality paper. Would recommend.
Surprisingly there are few books available for teaching children about pooping in the potty. My son is 5 and autistic, which delayed potty training until just recently. He learned to pee in he potty quickly, but bowel training lagged behind. So I turned to Amazon for some help from books. This book was okay, he thought it was interesting enough to sit through, but never asked for it. It's also pretty short.
This book is a cute story, but my child had no interest in it. She just didn't relate to the characters. She participated in the story, sang the songs and such but never engaged with the characters so she never was motivated to try to emulate the potty behavior. While the book was of little use to me, every child reacts differently and it was a very cute concept. If it catches on with your child, I think it would be a riot to watch!
I was a little skeptical when I purchased this book but I was pretty much at the end of the potty training rope, so to speak. My youngest child was being pretty stubborn about the potty training, and having had 4 successes with his older siblings, I couldn't figure out what wasn't clicking. I read another review that said that this book potty trained their child, so I gave it a shot. We read it a few times, and we haven't had any accidents since. He's been potty trained for several months now. This book does a really great job of speaking simply and honestly about potty training, about how hard it can be etc. I really recommend this one!
Little quirky for me, but I still enjoyed reading it with my child, who did enjoy it. He's a book-learner with little self-confidence, so it was one of a few carefully chosen books to help him learn the importance of and encourage him along the path of toilet training. Now, if I could just find a book that taught kids how to use the bathroom WITHOUT having to have their mommy alongside at all times, he'd be set!
I have a 4 year old that has been impossible to potty train. He is very competitive so this book was great. It outlines a contest with the child against the poop and pee. I will say it only worked for a few weeks, then he lost interest in that contest. This kid keeps me in my toes.
This book helped me get through my potty training woes. My son loved it and could absolutely relate. Although he couldn't read, he'd pick the book up on his own and retell the story in his own words. Whenever we went to the potty, I'd remind him of Stanley (the book's character) and how he was becoming a big boy. I didn't do the chart that the book recommends...that was just too much.
