How to Pee: Potty Training for Boys

Potty Training for Boys

Todd Spector, M.D.; Illustrated by Arree Chung

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)



Out with the old and in with the new! Family physician Dr. Todd Spector presents a fresh and outrageously fun way to encourage little boys to give up their diapers. They can try it freestyle (in the backyard!), or give the potty a try with the help of a few props and plenty of imagination. Peeing in the potty is a lot more fun if you do it rocket style, cowboy style, or superhero style!
Inspired by Dr. Spector's own experiences potty training his son, this combination of laugh-out-loud scenarios and useful advice turns the dreaded potty-training process into an exciting adventure for all.


Praise for How to Pee: Potty Training for Boys

“Sure, potty training is important, but how many books emphasize how to urinate with style . . . The lesson is clear: Pee with flair.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Spector, a family physician, approaches toilet training with humor in this unconventional picture book guide....Rendered in acrylic paint, the illustrations skillfully capture the text's amusing tone.” —School Library Journal

“Chung's acrylic and Photoshopped illustrations gleefully interpret the simple four-step instructions for each technique. Spector provides reassuring advice for parents at book's end....Along with Mo Willems's Time to Pee, this book hits the mark.” —The Horn Book

“A promising strategy that fosters imagination skills along with an important physical one.” —Booklist

“Parents...will want to hold up our peeing protagonist as a model. And what little guy wouldn't want to try urinating on command when it's obviously this much of a hoot.” —The Bulletin
