"I used the potty!"
I was at a restaurant recently and heard a child loudly exclaim, "I peed in the potty!" While his mom shushed him, a few of us strangers congratulated him. Because, it takes a village to raise a toilet-trained child, right? It brought me right back to the time my two year old son carried his potty chair into the living room while we were having a party. He apparently wanted an audience for his latest accomplishment. Books can often make a big difference as kids make this important transition to independence. But they can be hard to find in the library. Some are shelved with the picture books, while others are in the easy non-fiction area. That's why I love to show parents our potty-training booklist. These are all of our favorites, from our village to yours.
