Review of "The Potty Book for girls" by Alyssa Satin Capucilli

Updated on October 18, 2008

With such a variety of potty training books now available it can be difficult to decide which to use. Therefore, I'd like to tell you about my daughter's favorite potty training book: "The Potty Book for girls".

"The Potty Book for girls" is written by Alyssa Satin Capucilli, illustrated by Dorothy Stott and published by Barron's Educational Series, Inc. The book is thirty-four pages long and features thick almost cardboard like pages that are easier for a toddler to turn.

Capucilli's book stars a little red-headed girl named Hannah who likes to take her Teddy with her everywhere. Capucilli also takes the time to talk about other "big girl" activities that Hannah is able to perform like picking out her clothes and playing on the slide. (My daughter especially enjoys the fact that Hannah also likes to go down the slide.)

As a parent I like the fact Capucilli used her book to talk about accidents. The book is straight forward about the fact that accidents will happen while encouraging a child not to give up trying to use the potty. Additionally, the book shows Hannah being rewarded after potty training by getting to shop for new underwear. As my own daughter is looking forward to getting her own "big girl" Elmo panties, she is encourage by this page.

The overall message of the book is that Hannah, as a big girl who uses the potty, feels proud of herself. It is a good way to remind your toddler that she will feel proud of her new accomplishment while reminding her of the things she has already achieved.

      No, I don't mind. With so many children's books out there it's nice to be able to read reviews by parents.

      Nice job, Joy M! I hope you don't mind if I link to some of your hubs, as I have written a lot of children's book hubs and plan to do more. Thanks for the great potty training info. It's interesting that there are different books for both boys and girls.
