The favorite potty training book! Sep 22, 2008
This is the favorite one of all my toddler's potty training books. My in-laws read and read this over and over and then tried to hide it because they read it so many times. My little one found it and wanted to read it again!
Many kids start potty training because a peer is potty training and that is what this book is about. It is a very simple book and just adorable.
Most potty training books are geared to a boy or a girl and this suits both just fine. If you have a little one that loves animals this is a sure winner. The artwork is wonderful.
Best book ever!!!! Jun 21, 2008
I've been working with my 3 year old daughter on potty training for a couple months and not too much success. I read several books about potty training and did the whole sticker thing but nothing worked. I bought this book because it looked so cute and simple. I read it too my daughter once and she went right to her potty and took her pull up off and threw it away and said no more diapers only underwear. She has been wearing underwear ever since and no accidents and its been a couple weeks since that day. This book has a cute duck and pig in it. Summmary of the book is: The duck visits his friend the pig and wants to play but the pig cannot play just yet because he is going potty. The duck doesn't like his cold, wet diaper and decides to take it off and wants to use the potty too. He tells the pig he wants to use the potty and the pig says you wear diapers. The duck says no more diapers. The pig is done and washes his hands and such and the duck gets his turn on the potty and the pig waits for the duck to get done. She loves this book and I would buy it again and again. I'm going to buy this book for my nephew and niece too.
Quick read Jan 29, 2008
I'm a 25 year old male and I read this book in about 20 seconds. It wasn't that great. The reviews on the back of this book are way too exaggerated and are only there to, in my opinion, make the reviewer sound articulate.
ie. Publishers Weekly wrote, "...destined to find a permanent place in a child's library... a surefire favourite."
I disagree. The drawings and title are pretty cute however.
Delightful! Oct 10, 2007
My 3 year old and 5 year old love this book and so do I! The pictures are wonderful, and the dialogue between the characters is very cute. This is a wonderful tool to get your little one thinking about the transition from diapers to the potty (and may even provide enough inspiration for him/her to try immediately)!
No More Diapers For Ducky Oct 8, 2007
I read this book to my daughter just once before she tore off her diaper and used the potty. Nothing seemed to inspire her but this. We had borrowed it from the library and she loved the book. I stopped reading it to her and she stopped using the potty...so I bought it. Anytime she tries using her pullups for anything other than accidents, I get the book out and she is determined to use the potty once again.
