Once Upon a Potty with Audio Cassette (For a Boy) by Alona Frankel

"This is Joshua. Joshua is a little boy. I am Joshua's mother. I'd like to tell you about Joshua and his new potty."

So announces a friendly looking mom in this potty training classic, packaged with a charming mini-book and an audiotape of the Potty Song (a hilarious sing-along, guaranteed to inspire great feats on the potty).

Alona Frankel takes a no-nonsense approach to explaining the human body and its functions. The story follows Joshua's potty training adventures: seeing his first potty, learning to use it, and even having the occasional accident. Eventually, Joshua is a real potty pro. With cute illustrations and an interesting story, this is one potty training book that really works.
