Reviews - What do customers think about The Mighty Big Book of Travel Mysteries?
Too basic Dec 7, 2009
I was being cheap when I bought this book and it definitely shows. The book is very basic and just talks about that it feels good to stay dry and mommy,daddy,grandma,grandpa will be proud when the kid uses the potty. The free stuff I got from the diaper companies for PullUps and EasyUps was much more effective for my son.
Classic Oct 1, 2009
I used this book when training my kids who are now 20-somethings and I just bought a copy for my granddaughter. I read it to my kids so many times that I can still recite some of its pages by heart. They loved it because they could 'read' it themselves and mimic the smiles shown in the illustrations. It's fun for all involved and it's a great place to start the process of learning.
Nothing new or different than other books we have Jul 23, 2008
If it's your first potty training book then maybe it's OK. We have a few books and this one is no different than those.
It's dry alright, and almost useless. Aug 29, 2007
This is more like a "potty awareness" book than a potty training book. There's really no training whatsoever going on here, just a motivation for a toddler to use the potty so they can stay "proud and dry".
Newsflash: some kids don't care that they're wet! They just go right on doing what they're doing. And, as the "Note to Parents" points out, disposable diapers are getting so effective at absorbtion that the author recommends retrofitting your child with cotton underpants just so they'll feel wet so that they'll want to feel dry. Oh, another newsflash: it's not all about pee, is it? This book seems to assume it's all about "number 1" and doesn't deal with "number 2". Follow the directions in this book, however, and you'll be dealing with that soon enough.
Finally, the "Note to Parents" also recommends buying a child-size potty for the toddler (which most everyone does), but then all the illustrations show the child on an adult toilet. The toilet the adults use toward the beginning of the book is drawn just like the toilet the toddler uses for the remainder of the book. That's a major mistake in my opinion, but I'm not a child psychologist, just a parent who'se potty trained two kids.
Lost in Translation Aug 21, 2007
The Spanish version of this book is horrible! It was very awkwardly translated. Unless you call the potty a "basinica", don't get this book because your toddler won't understand what your are talking about.
