3 Fun Potty Training Books For Boys

As with girl’s training books, your choice in potty training books for boys needs to focus on something to which your son relates and will enjoy over several re-readings. Take your time and look around. There are options, one of which is sure to be just right to support your family’s efforts.

Even Firefighters Go to the Potty: A Potty Training Lift-the-Flap Story by Wendy A Wax, Naomi Wax and Stephen Gilpin

When little boys look to heroes, a firefighter is certainly one. So what better way to encourage a boy to use the potty than to see some of his favorite heroes in action? Be it a zookeeper or policeman, the flap book reveals them each stopping to go potty after asking, “where did he go?” There is a level of silliness involved, which is good to relieve a child’s tension (not to mention their parents).

Pirate Potty by Samantha Berger and Amy Cartwright 

The text tackles toilet training in a step-by-step adventure style. When the child in the book talks, it’s using pirate wording. Not all parents felt that it would really be useful for explaining the process, but they did feel it improved excitement about at least using the potty. The writer makes potty training sound fun, provided the reading level is good for your child. 24 pages – price point $6.

Super Pooper!: A cute story on how to bring fun and laughter to potty training., by Monika Sloan, Mike Motz and Jason Fain

Overall the review for Super Pooper is positive. The idea of your toddler becoming a super pooper is appreciated by parents looking for a motivational (and fun) tool that also fosters the imagination. A few readers were not impressed or found their child didn’t really maintain interest – so it really depends on whether your son likes super heroes and can translate that idea into his success in the bathroom.
