I absolutely adore these books. One comes with a tiara and the other with a pirate hat. They also come with stickers made for decorating their new head piece. The princess has jewels and the pirate gold. I like how each story explains using the potty and then show the child getting a beautiful sticker reward for their hat. It makes it easy for your child to connect to the story when they have the same hat & reward.
The author, Samantha Berger, has a fantastic sense of humor. While your child might not get some of the jokes she has tossed in - you certainly will. I like that she refers to the princess potty as the "royal throne" and that the pirate potty has an "X marks the spot". I also thought that the little potty song in each story was perfect for incorporating into your potty routine. I absolutely loved the cute and colorful illustrations from Amy Cartwright. Will the Princess/Pirate Potty books have your little one out of diapers? I'm not making any promises but I do think that they could be a great intro to the world of potties and certainly a strong first step. I think that the hat/sticker reward system would really appeal to some children - certainly would have with my oldest....my youngest however, would probably just try to eat the stickers. Perhaps the story with gold chocolate coins as a reward would work best with him. No matter what prize you might choose - these stories are wonderful, cute, sweet, and a must have for starting potty training!
