I think this book should probably be bigger. My daughter is very independent and likes books she can hold herself. I have attempted to read it to her several time and she is not engaged at all. She does like the DVD though because of the singing and dancing.
I searched the library and all my local stores for books on potty training and for some reason none of them had this book. I found this here on paperbackswap and ordered it to go with the "Once upon a potty" movie I had just ordered. Both the movie and the book are fantastic. I had tried so many things with my 2 1/2yr old to help her "get it" understand what I really expected from her in potty training and one time of watching the video and reading this book and she was off to the potty like the bell just rang and she finally understood. She has done great with the potty every since and almost everyday asks me to read her this book. It has great humor, a cute presentation and although quite vivid puts things in a simple yet clear way that toddlers can understand.
Love it! There is no other book with this detail of a young girls body, at least not a book that i have seen. I took this opportunity to teach my child not just how to use the potty, but also about her body and how it works.

I purchased this book when my now 9 yr old was being potty trained. I remember picking it up in the book store & being amazed with the detail of the illustrations & story. I've never come across a book so perfect for potty training a little girl until I found this one. All the kids loved the book, we changed the main character's name to my daughter's name & she thought the book was wrote just for her. Very special!
