I’m wrapping up potty training my 4th child. We’ve tried a lot of different potty training techniques, had a lot of potty training struggles and read a ton or potty training books. So, I’ve put together a short list of our favorite books that help kids at various stages of potty training. Books that simply introduce the concept, books that give step-by-step instructs and books that help kids overcome potty training struggles.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Daniel Goes to the Potty
If you haven’t seen the episode of Daniel Tiger where he sings, “If you have to go potty, stop and go right away.” I highly recommend it. It’s a catchy song and kids love it. This book is just a retelling of that episode my kids love it just as much as the tv show. Plus there is a button to flush the potty.
P is for Potty! Sesame Street
There are several potty training books with Elmo and the Sesame Street crew but this one is fun because it’s a lift-the-flap book. I also really like this Sesame Street: Let’s Go Potty Elmo! board book. More Elmo Potty books: Potty Time Songs, Potty Time With Elmo, Elmo Potty Time My First Look and Find.
This is such a cute book from the perspective of a baby that has to go but just isn’t sure and the following delight at using the potty. This is a short and simple book which is great for younger potty trainers.
A princess themed potty training book great for kids that love princesses. This is a fun little book that introduces step-by-step concepts of potty training.
Written by the same author as Princess Potty this is a very similar step-by-step introduction to potty training just told by a pirate instead. So if you have a pirate loving kid this would be a great book.
Dino Potty: Learn to Potty with Dino
I have a dinosaur lover so this is such a great step-by-step potty guide for kids that like dinos. The fun rhymes in this board book help kids remember the steps.
Dino vs. Potty
We are big fans o Bob Shea’s books and this is no exception. A cute and simple book about a dinosaur that needs to us the potty. This is a great book for introducing kids to the concept of using the potty.
Vegetables in Underwear
This is such a fun and silly book that shows vegetables wearing different types of underwear teaching children the reason why they need to wear underwear. Great rhyming and colorful pictures, just a fun book.
Ninja Potty Break
A cute little book that empowers little ones to listen to their potty and take control when they need to do go. Also, the ninja is a girl which is great for little girls that aren’t into princesses.
These are only a few of my favorites that cover different stages and struggles that kids might encounter while potty training.
