Even Firefighters go to the Potty by Wendy Wax is a lift the flap book that makes potty training cool!
It’s not strictly about Firefighters, rather it features different professions that children tend to like, such as police officers, astronauts and construction workers. But the concept is simple. Every page has a different scenario where a critical person is missing. You lift the flap and find them sat on the toilet because … even firefighters to to the potty.
Did that make you laugh? Believe me, it works on a two year old.
My only reservation about this book is that the police officers, firefighters etc are sitting on a toilet and not what most young children consider to be a potty. This resulted in my grandson wanting to use the ‘big toilet’ – which was no bad thing but could be slightly confusing. (I feel this could be the result of an Americanism that didn’t cross over to the UK very well).
Wendy Wax also has a similar book Even Princesses go to the Potty, if that’s more your child’s thing.
