Potty by Leslie Patricelli
E’s “Pick of the Week” this week is “Potty” by Leslie Patricelli. I have to admit, I haven’t been a big fan of Ms. Patricelli’s books. For parents, they’re boring. For kids, they’re wonderfully simple and they love them. My son loves the book set his grandparents got him. Whatever makes my boy happy right? Blah! I cannot tell you how I loathe “Yes yes no no”.. I’m a voice actor, so when I read to my son, I prefer books that give me something fun to do. I’m happy to report that this book isn’t as repetitive and boring for parents to read as Ms. Patricelli’s other books. It’s absolutely adorable and a helpful tool for my little guy’s adventure in potty training. He loves the illustrations, seeing what kitties and doggies do to go potty (since we have both), and then seeing the baby take of his diaper and sit on the potty just like he does! He giggled the entire way through the first time we read it. We then spent 10 minutes reading it over and over again. He loves it.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is potty training or going to start soon. It’s a cute tool you can use to help educate your child about going potty. The illustrations are darling and it’s a fun little read!
