Pirate Potty by Samantha Berger

As promised, here's Pirate Potty!

The perfect companion for Princess Potty, pick this novelty book up for your pirate, mateys. Instead of forest creatures and sparkles, there's a black potty flying three Jolly Rogers, cannon balls, and a big x to mark the spot!

Of course, every pirate has a special sea shanty, keeps his toilet paper in his treasure chest, and announces, "Anchors away!" Right?

Author Samantha Berger just nails this presentation. Your pirate totz are going to love potty training with this book as an aid. Again, Amy Cartwright's imagery is clean and adorable whether it's a page full of little symbols or a full spread. I particularly love the mother's eye patch in the shape of a heart. And the pirate's proportions are as cute as can be.

Enjoy Pirate Potty, with your crew. Punch out the included hat and decorate it with the gold doubloon stickers for a job well done!

Ooh. This looks excellent. We're trying to encourage both interest in potties and pretend play right now...and we already have a pirate hat. Thanks for the rec!

Couldn't be better for us right now - both potty training and going through a pirate phase! Thanks :-)

Both of these books look so cute and so age-appropriate. Very clever.

By the way, I've seen both potty books in Target, if you're looking for them.
