Great for potty trainers!

Engaging and easy to follow along for potty training children. Clear message and images.

Read to me feature - slow

The read to me feature is quite slow to keep my toddler’s attention.

Great update to a classic

My toilet training grandchild found this even more fun than the book. The book was certainly a hit with her, but the options of playing with the iPad version made it more interesting. The book works well as a substitute when her daddy is using the iPad. She's not allowed to put the iPad in her mouth, although she's tried. Of course the latest generation of kids is becoming tech-savy at an ever earlier age. She's almost three and can boot a computer and launch a browser. The iPad version is a real treat for her. I highly recommend it to any parent who has a child that has latched on to high tech at an early age. Maybe it's also a way to get a child interested in high tech formats. Parental supervision is necessary to protect your iPad. If there's any oral testing left in the development of the child, the book reads well and evidently tastes good too. The iPad app seems magical to a nearly three year old. She sometimes screams for it; literally.
