The book discusses several things, like saying "goodbye" to diapers, going to buy big-boy underpants (the underpants sort of look like girl panties with trains and planes on it, and there are butterfly illustrations all over the page, which is really weird to me for a boy's book - but luckily, my son just matter-of-factly tells me there are butterflies), and how potty chairs may look different but they all serve the same purpose. These are touched on briefly, but my son did take notice of all of these things, which I like. I like how the little boy's teddy bear tries out his potty first, which encourages Charlie to try himself. I also like how the bear does have an accident, but the book says, "That's OK, Teddy Bear," and explains that though we might have accidents, the important part is that we try our best. The way it's worded, I feel it is reassuring to a tot, and my son certainly repeats that page over and over. If you're looking for something more instructional, I'd skip this book; however, if you're looking for something relatable and reassuring, you might give this book a try!
Sometimes I don't give DK books too much credit, but my son has had a few of their other books, and they have brought him a lot of joy. I'm glad I didn't overlook this book today just because it was published by DK.
Plus: the pictures of real boys on real potties was very interesting and motivating to my son. We had started training about a week before this book came in, and I saw a marked improvement in his willingness and interest in using the potty. In addition, the sticker chart is invaluable! Great motivator for my little one. We had a little ritual. Success meant a sticker on his chart, hanging right beside the toilet; a sticker on his potty seat (he wanted to do that even when he had gone on the toilet instead); and a "phone call" from the lady on the "Potty Time" app from the Android market. Awesome app and it's free!
