Reviewed by Samantha Gregory for Readers' Favorite

The Potty Fairy by Mary Pap is a story which encourages young children to start using the potty by introducing the charatcer of a potty fairy to entice them and make it fun. Similar to the modus operandi of the tooth fairy, the child gets a reward by going on the potty - a special piece of underwear. The child can become a potty prince or princess by learning to go on the potty and giving up diapers for good. At the end of the book there is a song, along with the sheet music for it. I think this is a nice addition as children learn better through songs and rhymes.

Mary Pap has created a lovely book in The Potty Fairy. The illustrations used are bright and colourful and I think they will appeal to children. The story is helpful and teaches children that it is okay if they have accidents at times, as long as they keep trying because they will eventually get there. The story is whimsical, with the fairies actually spinning the underwear themselves, which I think is a nice touch. Children can get very stressed out when it comes to learning how to use the potty, so a reward is a lovely idea. I think that this a very enjoyable book and is suitable for toddlers and young children going through potty training. It is also something that can be passed on to future brothers and sisters and the older sibling could help the parents by telling their younger siblings the story of the potty fairy.
