Family physician Dr. Todd Spector presents a fresh and outrageously fun way to encourage little boys to give up their diapers. They can try it freestyle (in the backyard!), or give the potty a try with the help of a few props and plenty of imagination. Peeing in the potty is a lot more fun if you do it rocket style, cowboy style, or superhero style!

I checked this out on behalf of my 2.5-year-old son who started potty training a couple of months ago. While it is great that it encourages potty-training to be a fun process, this book also teaches bad and unhygienic behaviors as well, which is... not ideal. Several pages encouraged children to just pee freely outside wherever they see fit, with instructions on how to push dirt around and create a pee river in the dirt. On one hand, "ha ha ha, kids! They're so silly!" but on another hand: gross--why would I want to teach my child something that is rude and inconsiderate to others? It also has a page which teaches little boys how to pee "like Mommy" and talks about tucking "it" between their legs... I can't really put it to words... it's absolutely valuable for little boys to know how to sit to pee, but I don't really know why it had to be written in a way that sounds like it's making light of how women and girls use the bathroom. Anyway... fun book idea, but poor execution.

The book was fun but my son found it very confusing (19 months). Maybe for older children but for toddlers who are starting to show early signs of being ready to potty train not helpful

I have never met any parents who remember potty-training days fondly. This book may be the remedy. For parents who do not mind a little bathroom humor to make potty-training more enjoyable. It will continue to be funny even after they are potty-trained. The author has written a version for girls, too!
