They are a great way to get a leg up on the process and get the training underway.

Toddlers are known to learn well from books, and toilet training is no exception. Having some toilet training books in your child’s bookshelf is a terrific way to start introducing training ideas and evaluate the toilet training preparedness of your child. The books mentioned below are a combination of silly tales, lift-the-flap publications and easy picture books. These are the best potty training books that have got great reviews from both parents and toddlers.

When selecting a book for potty training there are some key points to remember. First, don’t forget who you are trying to appeal to. Knowing the personality of the child you are going to be working with in your quest to conquer the potty will go a long way to finding the book that can make a real difference. Also keep in mind that children of this age are very into the story line but definitely are drawn to the right illustrations. Make sure that you choose a book that has an attractive cover and appealing illustrations that the child can relate to in order to get them involved in the story. This will give training a personal attachment for them that will work to your advantage when you are in the midst of trying to win the potty game.

It’s difficult for me to not laugh whenever I read this toilet training book aloud. You will find flaps to lift all over the book as different creatures sit on a potty to find out if they are the one who is able to use it. Because young children love absurd things, the sketches of sheep using potties will probably be a hit. In the end, nevertheless, the potty finds its ideal match in the form of a young girl, providing you an opportunity to talk about toilet training with your own little one. This is one of the best potty training books for girls.

These books will help reduce the fear and anxiety in the child so that he could be at ease with this important step of his life.
