15 Potty Training Books For Boys

15 books that make potty training boys easier from The Bewitchin' Kitchen.

I’m in the midst of potty training. There has been a lot of ups and downs, breakthroughs and setbacks. In all honesty, it’s been a very frustrating process.

I have been told that potty training boys is harder than potty training girls, I don’t know how true it is. I think every child is different, and mine is just a little stubborn.

We were doing really a little over a month ago, then he got sick and regressed. So now it’s like we are starting all over. I have tried a few different methods on potty training that I have found on Pinterest, but none seem to be working for us. So why not try the old fashioned way and try a book?

My son responded really well to the Sesame Street Book Too Big for Diapers . There were a lot of giggles, questions and exploration through reading the book over and over to my son. So why not try a few others? Here are a few potty training books for boys:

3. The Potty Train
4. Super Pooper!: A cute story on how to bring fun and laughter to potty training.

TMI note (that I have to share): As I was writing this, my son went into the bathroom by himself, climbed the stool and went ON HIS OWN. Maybe this potty training thing is going well after all.

Mom high five!

  1. what a great list of books for potty training. We used The Elmo potting training app. it did work…eventually!

  2. This is a GREAT list Randa! I know many people who have struggled to find ‘boy books’ on potty-training! Off to retweet this for you! 🙂

  3. Great list! Love them all, thanks for sharing!!!

  4. This is a great resource for parents. I know where to send my Sister in law when she trains my youngest nephew.

  5. Great list! My son was a fan of Elmo at the time and we found an Elmo potty book that you can press buttons and it talked/made sounds which he really enjoyed! I didn’t find that my son was any harder than my daughter, I think the key is that the child is ready and you’ll be good to go! Best of luck!

  6. Great list of resources that I’ll be passing on to my sister!

  7. What a great list and post! One of my closest friends is currently potty training her son. I’m going to pass this along to her!

  8. it’s that time for my grandson, so this is great

  9. Wish I had these books when my kids were younger

  10. Definitely have to check out some of these books. I’ve been in the process of potty training Carter and he loves to use the potty and sitting on it but getting him to tell me when he has to go before he goes has been the hassle. I have a few other books that he loves but some days he is interested and some days it seems like the can’t be bothered with it…

  11. You can’t rush nature is how I feel. It was slow going with all four of mine but we made it through. Several of your listed books did help with my little guys.

  12. awesome and very helpful list! i will pass on to my girlfriend who is having a bit of a hard time potty training her son!

  13. My little guy is the same way! We also use a sesame street book that he likes. Also, i like the potty time with bear dvd. Sometimes boys are slower,

  14. All great books to read with your child to get them ready, but when they are ready it’ll be much easier on both of you’s

  15. My son is 15 and thankfully potty trained!! I have passed the list on to my cousin who is in the middle of training her little boy 🙂

  16. My best tip: to not worry! It’ll happen when they’re ready. I learned that with my second child.

  17. I can’t wait to try some of these with my little boy. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  18. Glad to hear the potty training is going successfully. Thank you for sharing at Motivational Monday Link Party. I can’t wait to see what you share Sunday night.

  19. I found it so much harder to potty train my son than my daughter – once we found her panties she loved she didn’t want to get them wet but my son?? Well he didn’t seem to care. Didn’t want stickers, not a potty treat, didn’t want to pick comic underwear… finally we found a book that had a road in it with a sticker of big trucks in it we were sailing. Mind, that was 6 months later – but as soon as he read it he was pretty much finished. Thank you Bob the Builder!!!


  20. Such a good list , books are so great to help explain things to them and it makes them feel like they want to when they see their favourite charters encouraging them as well

  21. Great list of books here!
