Once Upon a Potty - our likes and dislikes about this book by Alona Frankel. I personally like that it does not imply that diapers are for babies and only “big” boys and girls use the potty.
The author, Alona Frankel, wrote an illustrated children’s book in 1975 for her son specifically to help him use the potty. Some thirty years later, the Once Upon a Potty boys and girls books were born.
If numbers say anything about this title, these little gems have sold some four million copies around the world. The story withstands the test of time, and offers beautiful images that people remember long after potty training is done.
The book comes in hard cover and soft cover as
well as sound books for boys and girls. All the books retail for around
$8.00 in new condition and are available from Amazon.com
The book is priced well within the range of comparable potty training stories.
The book has a long history of success, and when you find other avenues not working it may well be worth trying something different. Take a peek inside the book at a store. Read a page to your child and see if it creates interest. Then make your choice as to whether it’s the right book for your home and training methods.
