Genre: Picture Book, Potty Training

I have to admit, prior to having a toddler of my own, the whole concept of potty training books was something I found ridiculous.  Now, as potty training becomes a reality and my own kiddo is showing more and more interest in the toilet (and she already loves books) its making a little more sense.

So my husband and I were pretty excited to sit down with our first training tool.  Temara Moore sent me a copy of “Bloop Bloop!” Goes the Poop and we immediately sat down to read it together to see if it would be something we’d like to share with Ayla after she woke up from her nap.  And we laughed so hard! In a good way.  Bloop Bloop is fun, but simple, and the rhymes are just down right amusing.  Its a great way to talk to your toddler about using the toilet.  Although its definitely geared toward boys, I think girls would be equally responsive.

We didn’t get very far when trying to read the book to Ayla the first time through.  She was so excited about the pictures and the cat that follows the little boy to the bathroom that she stole the book and spent about ten minutes flipping through the pages herself.  I don’t have the most patient kid when it comes to story time, but I love that she shows an interest in reading on her own.  She loves her books and at nearly 18 months has become a page turning pro.

The second time through was much more successful.  We made it all the way through the story with many “Ooohs” from Ayla and emphatic pointing to illustrations she had now familiarized herself with.  By the end of the book she was telling me “Bloop Bloop! Bloop Bloop!” I would not be surprised if she had some of the rhymes memorized a few months down the road when her annunciation improves.  Thank you, Temara, for our copy of the book.  It will be well loved.

    As a kid who thought I was losing something every time I pooped – like a piece of myself – this book would be awesome I think.
