Summary

Pick a few books that can be stacked or stored near the potty or toilet. It’s a perfect time to read a story ans distract your toddler.

A critical early step in successful toilet training is getting your child to sit on the toilet long enough to relax and let something happen. Distraction helps, and books are the perfect tool. Let your child pick a few books that can be stacked or stored near the potty. The books don’t have to be toilet training related, and you can include some catalogs and even cookbooks in the mix to keep things engaging. For optimum results, change over the books weekly.

If you are in the market for a few new books, we suggest the following award winners:
