A Picture Book About Potty Training

Meet Stanley…an energetic three-year-old who has not quite mastered using the potty. Stanley is way too busy playing to stop having fun. He would rather hop, skip and wiggle than get the job done. Then Stanley learns a new game called You and Me Against the PEE…and Me and You Against the POOP! Armed with a powerful secret for potty-training success and eager to play, Stanley proudly transforms into a Potty Expert.

She has presented in thousands of schools and speaks at education and counseling conferences nationally and internationally. Julia has published almost one hundred children’s books on a wide range of character and social development topics, and regularly contributes to print and television media about these topics. The goal behind Cook’s work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem-solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the “what to say” and the “how to say it.”

With more than two decades experience working with parents, early educators, news media, academia, government, non-profits and corporations alike, Dr. Jana is dedicated to maximizing every child’s potential.

This fun, creative book is a must-read for every potty training family! It challenged my 3 1/2 year old to finally take control and become a Potty Expert. By combining the book’s valuable advice and engaging illustrations with plenty of consistency and praise, we finally conquered this important developmental milestone (accidents not included).
