Books that Teach: Daniel Goes to the Potty

It has happened again in my house, a child is ready to potty train. It doesn’t matter how many times you go through this stage — it is ALWAYS different. The last child I trained was a girl, but I have trained two boys, and I am back to training a boy now. In my experience, girls are easier. but this time around my son seems very interested in training so we shall see how it goes. In my experience having something that helps to show that the potty is not scary is a huge help. I usually give my child a doll or toy that will use the potty just like they will, and a book that makes the whole experience understandable.

Daniel goes to the potty

Each of my children loves a different cartoon character. My youngest is in love with Daniel Tiger from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. So for his book I chose to pick up Daniel Goes to the Potty. My son loves the episode when Daniel learns to go potty, and we already sing the song, so the book was an excellent addition to our new potty training routine. It follows Daniel as he learns the routine of the bathroom: “when you have to go potty stop, and go right away.” He learns the process of going potty, washing his hands, and going back to play. We love that it explains what to do when he feels the urge, since like most children, my son does not want to stop playing when he feels the need to go. It even shows what happens when he doesn’t stop to go.

As we embark on this last round of potty training Daniel is along for the ride with us and we are ready to be potty trained and off to play.
