This book only has 8 double page spreads. But it has a giant "FLUSH ME!" button that comes through on each page. And children will laugh and giggle and love pushing that button. It is a fairly simple story and the illustrations are in Caroline Jayne Church's characteristic style that we love as a family. Caroline Jayne Church is one of our favorite children's illustrators. This book is simple and fun and gets the point across. I don't think it will be a great potty training tool, but it will always bring a smile and laugh from children.
We have a lot of Church's other adorable, rhyming books so I thought this one would be a winner with my little boy too, but I was disappointed. The rhyming is kind of lame and repetitive and it doesn't really make sense or keep my child's interest. My toddler likes the flush button on this book but he shows more interest in the books where each page is like a step in the process of using the potty. This book kind of throws each "step" (ex. flushing and washing hands) together in one quick rhyme on each page. Not a great one for getting your little one excited about using the potty.
21 month old loves this book. I think it's cute; it's not necessarily instructional, but hey, we're dealing with toddlers here right? My intent was to begin exposing DS to the idea of going on the potty. He likes the book and especially likes the button, so, success IMO. No, the book hasn't magically potty trained him, but let's be realistic.
I got this for my daughter when she was roughly 10 months of age to familiarize her with the concept of going potty, and to serve as a distraction, so she'd stay on the potty until she's done with her business.I'm one of "those" parents, who has a semi-rigorous ban on noisemaking toys, so I was slightly disappointed when I realized that it had a button that creates a rather garbled flush noise, but my now 22 month old child adores it. In spite of my mistake when ordering (we generally like Caroline Jayne Church's books, so I tend to pick those out, sometimes without reading the product description, my bad), the sound isn't intolerably loud, so it's not as much a nuisance as I feared. Our daughter will often pick it out of the shelf for reading on her own accord. Our daughter was potty trained on the potty at home at about 21 months, so I'm sure it didn't hurt, I'm not convinced the book was a magic potty training aide, though.(Now if they only had a sequel to teach a child to use the regular large flush toilets, my kid is afraid of public bathroom toilets. They're loud, the seats have a big gaping hole at the front, and they usually require a flimsy paper seat protector, all new and "scary" things for an almost 2 year old...)
I got this book to send to my granddaughter, so I would havepreferred a little girl going through the potty training exercise.Otherwise, I found the book written in a manner that would bemotivating to the toddler....love the "Flush Me" button
My son loved this bright, colorful, and noisy little book that helps him learn about the potty, he has been pottying regularly now for a few weeks and he often reads this book while doing his business, I think the sound effect is a real help.
I thought this was a cool idea for a book. My daughter didn't. It got thrown out on accident, I think it was an accident. Either way, the flush sound is a bit disappointing, but it is audible and you know what it is. :)
I liked this book because of its simplicity. Straight forward and positive about making the break with diapers, focusing on adopting a new and better way of doing something rather than on "giving up the diaper". It promotes an "I can do this" attitude, pride in something accomplished.
