Need something fun to take the pressure off the whole potty training issue? This is a great choice. Shea's dinosaur is back from Dinosaur vs. Bedtime, this time convinced that he doesn't have to use the potty! After lemonade (dinosaur wins!), a three juice box lunch (dinosaur wins!), and splashing in puddles (dinosaur wins!), he still doesn't have to go. But wait, is that another dinosaur victory dance? No, that's a potty dance.... A great message and a good ending because in the end the potty wins and that's ok with dinosaur.The illustrations are simple and colorful, the message is clear and there are enough water sound effect words that chances are your toddler might have to go potty even before dinosaur does. This book really stands out from the crowd of potty books out there because of it's sparse, clear text and it's unbeatable humor. So relax and have some fun with this whole potty training thing - dinosaur will help you out! Recommended
Our son loved this book from day 1. He even tries to read it to us now. It's funny and colorful, and has a silly dinosaur who tries not to go potty as he is busy playing. We bought another copy as a gift for a friend. I hope this book makes it into every dinosaur-loving kids hands when they potty train. It is silly-fun!
Third St Books, downtown Marysville WADINOSAUR VS. THE POTTYwritten and illustrated by Bob Sheareviewers: Isabel, 3, Abbygail, 4, and Grammy, older then dirt."Dinosaur said Roar and he won and he went potty."Not much of an review this morning as the girls are sitting on the couch making up stories as they look through another book. I had to take this one away from them so I could get the info for the review. The good thing is I now have fewer roaring dinosaurs the bad thing is they both want to take the book home.This is just a fun fun book with lots of sound effects... ROAR! and lots of WINS!! The word choice is limited and the girls quickly picked out Roar, win and, of course, dinosaur.This is not the standard introduction to potty book... This is an affirmation book about using the potty.The artwork is bright and cartoonish which is totally appropriate for this quick read. I have developed a love of children books especially the different forms of artwork. I remember reading to my own children.. I just don't remember it being so much fun.Girls give it a 5 and I give it a 5 roars... we all WIN.
I ordered this to send to my friend. She has two little ones, one is 5 and just mastered sounding out words. The other is almost two and enjoys playing with her poop! It makes me glad I can't have children, but I thought it was a good idea to send her some reinforcements. The older likes reading to the younger and even though this is a little young for her I think they'll enjoy it. It's small but sturdy with pretty thick pages. The poop player likes to destroy things so hopefully this will hold up long enough to get her through potty training! Plus she loves dinosaurs (who doesn't?!). The illustrations are cute too! It got here quickly. If the girls like it I will be back for more!
I do not like this book. A lot of "roar"-ing and not a whole lot of actual words. The pictures are nice but I don't like reading this one at all, especially during the long periods of waiting in the potty.
Another cute Dinosaur book that you have to read in a wrestling announcer voice. It does make my son happy to see that he's done some of the things the dinosaur did. The only thing that is weak about it, is that Dinosaur is already potty trained. It's not a training book. It's more of a book about holding it when you have to go. We enjoy reading it and it at least does help me bring up the subject to a 2 year old who doesn't want to be trained.
Very cute book! Our son is 15 months and sometimes it can be hard to keep his attention but this dinosaur book with all the roaring is awesome! I think this is a great potty book because it has a lot of scenes with water of some type and dinosaur continues to hold it until he can't anymore which then he has to run to the potty. Could be a great learning tool to teach children to hold it until they get to the restroom!
Our daughter's nanny requested this book as one of the gifts for her kids at their second birthday, and I'm so glad she did!We got this for our daughter as well, and it is one of her favorite potty books. As an adult, I have no idea why but that the way it is, though? All the toddlers who have read it while here have laughed and talked about the dinosaur for hours.It is simply drawn, uses pleasing colors, and is really fun to read with an active toddler because you can get in to the "wins" parts of the story by clapping, hooray-ing, and the like. There are many other books in the series to check out as well.
