SEND HELP! 7 great kids' books about toilet training

Kinderling News & Features

It isn't easy getting a kid out of nappies and onto the porcelain throne - but these books just might make the journey a little bit easier (and a lot more fun).

Toilet training can be a fraught time in the life of a family. Worries about when to begin, feelings of being housebound when your child is learning to go nappy-free and potty wariness can all conspire to make this major milestone feel a little daunting.

Luckily some genius authors and illustrators have banded together to hatch some brilliant books that help familiarise kids with the mechanics and timing of using the potty.

Here are some of our favourites …

1. Meekoo and the Big Red Potty
