In Potty Training is Fun!, Alexa is excited because her mother thinks she’s big enough to be potty trained. They look at a book called “Potty Training Your Child” and Alexa likes the pictures which make the task look easy. Her mother gets the potty chair, but Alexa is nervous and lets her doll try it instead. She eventually sits on the potty chair and is pleased that she "had to go.” Alexa has a few accidents, and she attempts using the “big people’s potty,” but stuffs it with rolls of paper. Her mother patiently encourages her, and soon she is ready for special underwear. Alexa’s parents promise to give her a Happy Potty Day Party if she doesn’t wet the nighttime diapers for seven days. The story is written by Stephanie Patterson.
This cute little book by Stephanie Patterson is sure to be a winner with parents who have toddlers. Kids will enjoy the amusing scenarios they see depicted in the nicely sketched, colourful illustrations while being encouraged. Adults, on the other hand, will appreciate the realistic approach the author used to help make potty training an easier transition for the toddler. I do think that the creative incentives or rewards that the author wrote about is a strong motivational tool which will get the positive results from children that parents desire. Potty training does not have to be a tedious chore after all, and Stephanie Patterson proved this in her well written and delightful short story.
