The Poo Poo Fairy

The Poo Poo Fairy - Mary Harper Dick, Joseph Cowman

by Mary Harper Dick

illustrated by Joseph Cowman

age range: 2 to 5 years old


This is the story of how Paulina became a poo poo fairy after failing in other fairy fields such as take care of lost teeth, or help kids to fall sleep on Christmas Eve, or the challenging Godmothering. When Paulina meets a boy struggling with the use of the toilet, she discovers her skill for making things go smoothly with potty training.


The story is funny, and Paulina is a gorgeous character. I'm not sure it's accurate to call this book a "resource" to potty training, since Paulina's methods are never reveled. I guess it would help to low the kid's stress to know a fairy is overseeing him/her to make sure everything goes fine, like many other fairies are used. That said, it is a amusing book, with incredible good illustrations, and it might be used as a trigger to introduce potty training to beginners. I got the box set which comes with a beautiful stuffed Paulina doll to accompany while waiting for "something to happen".

I received this book from the author via Bostick Communications in exchange for an honest review.
