Piper Pees and Poops is a children’s book written in rhyme by Regina Puckett. When young Piper starts her transition from diapers to big-girl pants, her mother gently guides her through the adventures of toilet training. Piper is told that when she feels the urge to go to the bathroom, she can no longer go in her diaper, but instead needs to fetch her mother and tell her. After Piper is shown how to use a potty, Piper’s mother explains that each time Piper uses the potty successfully or sleeps through a whole night without soiling her big-girl pants, they will cheer and celebrate together at Piper’s amazing and wonderful victory. After all, Piper is a big girl now. When Piper’s mother questions her daughter about what Piper needs to do and where she needs to go when bathroom time calls, Piper excitedly answers correctly each time and looks forward to her next big challenge of potty training.
Written in language which is very easy for young children to understand, Regina Puckett’s toilet training guide for toddlers is an excellent educational tool, showing them how to go to the toilet in a grown-up manner without being embarrassed. No word is mentioned about what happens if Piper accidentally goes to the toilet in her diaper or wets the bed. No negativity is used at all throughout the book, building a fully positive learning atmosphere for any child. Not only is this book an ideal read for young children (where the book would be read to them at story time), but also for new parents who are not sure how to fully deal with the sometimes traumatic time during the toilet training of a toddler. Full emphasis is placed on rewards, cheering and goals to aspire to, which creates encouragement and celebration for a child who undergoes toilet training. Piper Pees and Poops would ideally be stocked in kindergarten, home and daycare libraries, to be read on a daily basis at story time.
