Do I mostly share romance reviews on this blog? Yes. But if you didn’t know form my plethora of middle grade reviews, I’m a children’s librarian! I also used to teach two-year-olds and preschool. Because of that, I’m very familiar with potty training books. Here are seven potty training books, and one that just has a silly, related title – because I’m a child at heart and poop humor just gets me.

Where Do You Poop? by Agnese Baruzzi

The summary, from Amazon:

Potty training becomes a funny, interactive game of discovery in this rhyming pull-the-tab book. Kids will laugh out loud as they make each animal’s poop appear by sliding the tab — and learn where they should go!

The bird does it in the air, the dog does it on a lawn. But where should a child do it? On the potty, of course! “Works as both a biology lesson and potty-training encouragement…. A fun, new take on droppings.” – Kirkus Reviews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m not sure there is a potty training book that will be more “lesson-teaching” for kids and HILARIOUS for grown-ups. (The toddlers probably will be amused too.) This really describes all the woes of diapers, and then jumps into how toddlers use the potty and, tbh, the experience of pooping in a cute and funny way.

P is for Potty! by Naomi Kleinberg

The summary, from Amazon:

Sesame Street‘s Elmo tells little girls and boys ages 1 to 3 all about how to use the potty in this sturdy lift-the-flap board book with more than 30 flaps to find and open!

P is for Potty is the perfect mix of fun and learning for potty-training toddlers—especially while they practice sitting on the potty! Sturdy flaps will hold up to hours of repeat lifting and peeking, and toddlers will delight in the surprises they find under the flaps.

Poop by Poppy Champignon

A funny picture book about the ever-popular word poop

Admit it: You love saying the word poop. It’s so much fun to say, much to your polite friend’s dismay. Poop. Poop. Poop. It’s all fun and games until you lose your triple-chocolate ice cream scoop and discover the true meaning of the word, and suddenly, it’s not so funny anymore. Or is it?
