How To Potty Train Your Monster (Picture Book)



Released May 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

If it is time to start potty training, this cute picture book addresses the situation with humor. Follow the ten steps the author offers and it shouldn't take too long before your little "monster" will be able to do it himself!

The various common sense steps include getting your child his own potty chair, make frequent bathroom stops during the day, use lots of praise when the desired results are achieved, and always remember accidents will happen so don't freak out!

As the author and wild illustrations by Mike Moon stress, it is essential that you do not lose your sense of humor when embarking on this milestone in your child's life. The book has plenty of funny commentary but also common sense comments about the task at hand, so pay close attention to the "warnings" and the "tips.”

First and foremost, this is a picture book to share with your little monster so you'll wish to read it with him a number of times aloud before you start the actual potty training. I'd suggest you ask your child to tell you when he or she feels ready to begin. After reading the book a few times, I think the child will get the idea and give you the green light!
