I think my IQ just dropped. This is a whole new level of "bathroom humor." I understand the purpose meant behind it, and I know some would be very grateful and maybe even say it helped them a lot. But I can't help thinking it wasn't totally necessary. My parents managed to potty-train 8 kids without any silly bathroom songs to encourage us. I guess if it gives a parent another tool to help in that very trying time of any parent's life, then all right.

I know this could have been written a lot wo...more

Recommends it for: grownups with juvenile humor; parents going through potty training
You can't not laugh at this book, or any of the Catrow/Katz singalong books. This one takes an unflinching look at potty usage, from the texture of poo, to the perils of boys missing the bowl, to the wonders of a potty party (something I learned about from Katie!!). I can't really say much more about this without attempting to sing, but my favorite is "Don't Flush Strange Things in the Potty" to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."

I had more fun with the piggy back songs than my toddler did.

This book was adorable. At first glance I thought it was litterally going to tell a story about how to use the potty but as I opened the book, they were actually individual poems that went alongg with other nursery rhymes such as Old McDonald had a Farm, and discussed issues about the potty. It was very nice. I read this book to a group of newly potty trained children and they were able to make text to self connections about what they are suppose to do in the potty and what the book had to say....more

Fantastic book of songs written to the tune of familiar childrens songs. Each one is about potty training, having to go, having accidents, saying good-bye to diapers etc., and they use the much-loved "potty humour" to great effect. Great for those who are just potty training and those who have finished training, but will love the humour.
This is a definite purchase for my nephew!

Absolutely adorable, silly and fun from start to finish. My daughter (3) just learning to be potty trained was intrigued and of course my 9 year old thought it was hilarious singing about going potty. Definitely want to check out the other books on back panel by this author. :)

My youngest is in the middle of potty training so this was a great find at the library for us. We laughed out loud many times while singing these fun songs. If only I had a better voice! :)

Personally, I find the illustrations downright disturbing... but Charlotte LOVES this "song book." A big potty hit.
Amanda
I love this book--the songs are hilarious and the pictures are great. I love Alan Katz and David Catrow!!

Should appeal to the Captain Underpants set
