First, note that this is not the same illustration as the tv show. Doesn't bother my son, but it's a little odd if you're used to the other. Second, this is about nighttime diapers/training. If you're using this as a lesson for daytime training, get the potty time book (same series, different cover); this is a sequel of sorts. Third, doesn't matter in terms of buying the book, but fyi that the pages are laminated or something. Coated with plastic. Again, just a little odd. Story is fine. Does its job, but isn't terribly interesting.
There are allot of potty books out there but this one is well written in a story mode, not just " I go pee" or "I go poo". It's wrote from the perspective of a toddler/pre-schooler and how they go about their day, and why it's important to use the toilet. If you let them watch Caillou then it's a great start because they'll be familiar with the character. I didn't know that the pages and cover are a plastic/vinyl like material which is AWESOME if they want to sit on the potty with it, you wipe it off with a disinfectant wipe or something and your good to go. Smart thinking, a potty book does go with the kid to the potty and accidents happen so this was a well thought out idea! This is the second book. I am leaving the same review for the first book "Caillou: Potty Time" as I got them both at the same time. One is about learning to use the toilet, and the second (this one) is more about the continued good reasons to stay dry.
Extremely disappointed upon opening the item. My son who is 3, loves Caillou and watches the TV program. We have been trying to potty train since 2 and we are still trying at at almost 3. I thought this would be the answer and it would get us over the hump! Nope....the little boy in the book doesn't resemble the Caillou in the TV show at ALL. Caillou's father looks different as well. Needless to say, I put it to the test with my little one. I showed him the book and asked him who the little boy was...He had no clue. I finally told him it was Caillou and he responded with, "No, thats not Caillou." ...and went about his business :(
My 14 month old daughter loves books. This one is particularly ideal as the pages cannot be torn and the book is large and colorful. Very handy introducing potty training with a familar face.
We love Calillou. The TV show is great and my daughter lights up when she sees this little character. BUT, this book really falls short. Not sure all the great reviews on this. The book ends with Caillou wetting the bed and his dad saying its OK, your still young. I understand showing your kids understanding, and thats important, but for a potty training book I don't think this really hits the nail on the head.This book Potty (Leslie Patricelli board books) is way better in my opinion.
Great book my grandson loves Caillou and after good parenting and persistence with my grandson he no longer needs diapers. I read a review that mentioned that this book wasn't written with proper English/ definition or something like that come one give me a break LMAO. The reviewer mentioned buying another book and gave the name of the book and author that's a bias reviewer. Look if your child likes Caillou and you think buying this book would help then buy it, remember this is a beginning of life task and it worked very well with my grandson.Thanks for reading. Reviews help consumers.
If your child is potty training and likes Caillou then they will like this book. Two things that could be improved: one Caillou looks different than the boy in the show, two, the storyline and ideas used are above the reading level of a toddler. The book is very lengthy for a potty reading book so I usually skip some if the reading to make it through the whole book.
This is a good book to get while potty training. Expectantly if your kids like Caillou. The only down fall is it is a little lengthy. I get that you are siting there for a while trying to get your child to use the bathroom. However after the first 5 pages, they are ready for the next book. So I think it does go hand in hand with the age and attention span of the kid that you are potty training. If they are 4+ then I would highly recommend this book.
