Need instructions for a fun-filled bath? An adorable baby and a creative big sister are happy to show you the steps.
Contrary to traditional belief, the transition from nappy to potty can be started even before your child's first birthday - and be fully completed by the second! Katie Warren advises taking advantage of the early months - when babies do most of their communicating on an emotional level - because that's when children understand things intuitively much sooner than they understand words or actions. The author stresses the importance of a friendly, positive environment - one that lovingly encourages a child's performance on the potty - because a child responds much better to a parent's smiles, laughter and enthusiastic support than to fear and coercion. If such an atmosphere prevails whenever children are on their potties - and they are made to feel happy and proud each time they are successful in their training - then they will repeat these performances just to get that same, happy response from their parents. This is the underlying principle of Katie's method. "Potty Training Your Baby" includes information on everything to do with potty training, including dealing with those inevitable little "accidents". The material is presented in a down-to-earth fashion and is enhanced by personal flashbacks from the author's own parenting experience. Perhaps most importantly, the book shows you how to turn this often dreaded and frustrating task into a time of mutual growth and learning for both you and your child.

• Little Puppy is excited - it's his birthday, and all the Little Friends are coming to his party!
Things change when you get a new baby in the family. You have to share Mommy and Daddy's lap...and even your toys. But there's lots of things you can show your new baby...like how to play hide and seek and peek-a-boo...even how to run through the sprinkler. After all, there are tons of things that you can do now; it's time to teach them to your new baby.
In this spare but effective text, author Sharon Jennings shows how to accentuate the positive for preschoolers who have - or will have - a young sibling. Jennings quickly shifts the responsibilities from the dreaded Sharing to the much more enticing prospect of Showing (with a little bit of showing off) all the skills that the older one has mastered. Artist Joanne Fitzgerald's lively watercolour characters are an irresistible combination of sweetly passive and ever-so-slightly domineering.
