Both of these books are told from a kid's point of view, and offer lots of encouragement on the subject of potty training. An unnamed little girl speaks to the reader, asking about all the big girl things she can do. But, all is not perfect, and the magic of being toilet trained does not happen all at once. Mistakes happen, but mom and dad remain encouraging. These are very optimistic books, and will be useful in the training process. Recommended for PreK

A lot of books are set up in a traditional novel style, but others use letters and notes to tell the story instead. This can be a really fun way to read and get to know the characters. It may even spur an interest in writing some letters yourself! I’m sure a friend would love to read the story of your days in a letter just for them!
