I have two boys who learned all about potty training through books for kids! They were both obsessed with the books on the list and I truly credit these titles for sparking an interest in using the potty for my kids.
A few weeks ago, I asked my Facebook community to recommend their favorite potty training books. I came away with a great list and found a few more at the library along the way too. Here are my son’s top 10 potty training books!

Even Firefighters Go to the Potty by Wendy Wax
This one was my son’s absolute favorite! My 13 month-old loved it too. This lift-the-flap book showcases all different kinds of people who use the potty- firefighters, waiters, doctors, baseball players, etc. My son was especially interested in the urinal on one of the pages. I must admit that my husband and I thought it was pretty cute too! Thanks to Teaching My Blessings for recommending it to me on Facebook.
Potty Time by Fiona Watt
Colorful and simple exploration of the purpose of a potty. Bookworm Favorites told us about this one.
Pirate Potty by Samantha Berger
This is a super cute look at pirates going to the potty. “Fi-fiddle-dee-dee, I’ve got to make pee-pee”.
Caillou Potty Time by Joceline Sanschargrin
This is another one that we’ve read multiple times. Calliou gets a potty and gradually adjusts to the idea of when it’s time to use it.
A Potty for Me! by Karen Katz
This is a lift-the-flap book about a little one who gets a potty. At first he isn’t ready to use the potty, but eventually has success!
The Potty Train by David Hochman
This is a cute story especially for a train loving little one. “Chugga chugga poooo-pooooooo!”
Superhero Potty Time by Sue DiCicco
This is another interactive board book. It has lift-the-flaps, tabs to pull and more. I like that it talks about washing your hands after using the potty.
Time to Pee! by Mo Willems
Lindsey from Facebook recommended this one. Yep, Mo Willems has a potty book. He talks about that funny feeling that you get when you have to pee. It’s a story about where to go when you get that feeling.
Potty by Leslie Patricelli
This is a simple board book, but my son really enjoyed it too. Jessica from Play Trains recommended this one to us.
Zoo Poo by Richard Morgan
We found this one the zoo gift shop. My son giggled all the way through as he listened to this humorous tale of where and how animals poop!
