   are you kidding
Apart from seeing real children on a fictional potty and toilet, aside from seeing actual children. The 2 stars are therefore the same. Are you kidding me? This is more for the parent than the child and should be a free leaflet given at a well baby check up. Words like bowel movement and bm and i don 't know that this was a waste of money. We talk only about the pictures.

   portrays potty-learning as part of growing bigger
I like Mr. Rogers' book because it portrays potty-learning as something that children learn when they get bigger, the way they learn to do other things such as feed or dress themselves. It is a multicultural picture book and parents are also shown as caring and loving.

   Lost my first one, buying another!
This book was great - I bought it for my first child 6 years ago, then lost it. No other book has ever gone missing in our somewhat organized home, and I was heart-broken thinking that I wouldn 't have it for my second child. Well, it's time and the book has never turned up throughout the attic, so I am buying another. This book and Alona Frankel's Once Upon a Potty made Potty training more natural and interesting for my first child.

   son's favorite book
My son is almost 2 and this has been his favorite book for a few months. He doesn 't seem to be close to toilet training, but he finds this book utterly fascinating! He'll pick this book any day over Teletubbies!

   To the point and well written.
Some have viewed Fred Rogers's Going to the Potty as outdated by. Yes, the pictures were taken years ago, but who cares. The pictures are informative yet very discrete and neither I nor my child cares what clothes the people wear. The information is still up to date - going to the potty hasn t changed over the years has it? I highly recommend '' this book. It does not contain any silly characters or make Potty's training into a story, but a reality of real people using the potty. Rogers, good job!

   Timeless
Years later, the best book out there is still. My daughter asks me to read it to her every night and has started on the potty, as she says, like children in a book.

   Perhaps for an older crowd not looking for a story?
I read the bad reviews but still felt that I needed to give Mr Rogers a try. My almost 3 yr old, who loves books, did not take to this. It doesn 't have a discernible story because all the people pictured are different, at different stages, etc. I can see that this worked better as an informational television production for children. This book might work for older children who have trouble at school or night and trying to master the concept by normalizing stages.

   Great book to look through while sitting on the potty
Pros shows some diversity pictures of real kids Modest Cheap Cons Old Mode pictures Unnecessarily long-winded. I had to get my son used to not reading it and just looking at the pictures because I can not read that whole thing multiple times a day. Kiddo does love to sit on his potty looking at this book just for fun. Looks like a little man leafing through a magazine Hahahah.

   outdated content
I wish I could give the null stars, what book is this on Earth? I have no problem with the dating pictures, but the content does not appear to be written for a small child. It was interesting, but by the time we came on the page that said that toddlers should go to the potty to please their mom and their parents, I couldn t bear it anymore and threw it away ; I don 't even want to be bothered by the return process. Then the great Mr Rogers had heard so much about? Weird... gets to know...

   No nonsense approach for what you are trying to accomplish here
This book is quite straightforward and respectfully written for parents of young children who are beginning to become interested in the potty. It starts by showing how babies need a lot of help from their parents, but as they grow older and more independently as toddlers they become capable of a lot more things, including going to the potty. Mr. Rogers's sensitive yet sensitive handling of this theme is exactly what I was looking for in a book of this type. If you understand the approach of Mr Rogers, you will not be disappointed in any way!
