Summary

Summary

This best-selling book-and-doll package includes a newly designed Joshua or Prudence doll and potty, paired with the Once Upon a Potty picture book. Just like you, Joshua has a body, and this body has many nice and useful parts: A head for thinking Eyes for seeing Ears for hearing A mouth to talk and eat with Hands for playing A pee-pee for making Wee-Wee Legs for walking and running A bottom for sitting and in it a little hole for making Poo-Poo Potty talk has long been considered taboo in conversation--even between parent and child. Thankfully, Alona Frankel presents toilet training in a frank, open way for parents and children. Available in both Girl and Boy formats, Once Upon a Potty books are best used as companion volumes to a child's new potty. Dear Fellow-Parents, Once Upon a Potty is best used as a companion volume to a child's new potty. I wrote this book when my own child was toilet training to help him better understand the process. My son was encouraged and excited by this story. It motivated him to make the developmental leap from diaper to potty. Learning to use the potty is often a lengthy process, taxing the patience of both parent and child. When success finally comes--and it should come in its own good time, without undue pressure or haste--it enhances the child's confidence and pride. He has taken another step toward independence. He sat on the potty as a little child and got up feeling ten-feet tall. It's one small step for mankind, but a giant one for your family. Love, Alona

Dear Fellow-Parents, Once Upon a Potty is best used as a companion volume to a child's new potty. I wrote this book when my own child was toilet training to help him better understand the process. My son was encouraged and excited by this story. It motivated him to make the developmental leap from diaper to potty. Potty talk has long been considered taboo in conversation -- even between parent and child. Thankfully, this attitude is changing, and children and parents are all the happier for it. I believe that a frank and open approach to all bodily functions is a good, healthy attitude toward child rearing. I have decided to use "Wee-Wee" and "Poo-Poo" in this book, but I encourage you to read the story with your child using words most suitable for you and your family. Learning to use the potty is often a lengthy process, taxing the patience of both parent and child. When success finally comes -- and it should come in its own good time without undue pressure or haste -- it enhances the child's confidence and pride. He has taken another step toward independence. He sat on the potty as a little child and got up feeling ten feet tall. It's one small step for mankind, but a giant one for your family.
