Q: Can you recommend a good book for a toddler learning about toilet training? – Sylvia
A: Try Leslie Patricelli's Potty for something humorous or Karen Katz's A Potty for Me!: A Lift-the-Flap Instruction Manual for something a little more traditional. If you are looking for a gender-specific book, I recommend Joanna Cole's My Big Boy Potty or My Big Girl Potty.
