As we all know, potty-training has its highs (BIG GIRL PANTS!, a new potty!) and it's lows (uh-oh!). But with its gentle humour and encouraging, 'keep-trying' message, this adorable little book will help set toddlers (and their parents) on the right track to a nappy-free day.

I read it to Arya aged 3 aged 3

My daughter loves this book, it is about a little girl Goldilocks who doesn’t like wearing nappies and she wants to be a big girl.  So Goldilocks does what she does best she tries to  find the perfect pair of knickers and the perfect potty; an excellent take on the original Goldilocks and the three bears book. The pictures are fantastic they're quirky and fun and tell the story perfectly.  I would definitely recommend this book especially if you are potty training your little one.

Smashing artwork in this book with lovely effects around the pictures. That aside it had the added bonus of helping with potty training. A clever take on the original Goldilocks story which will delight little girls and little boys too, if they can empathise with the dilemma.

I read it to Bobby aged 1 aged 1

Bobby is now coming up to two years old and is at the stage where we are starting his potty training  journey. That being said, this book has been invaluable in helping us to make real progress with this process. I read the book to Bobby as he is too young to read yet, however he absolutely loves the story, he is already aware of the tale of the Three Bears which this book models itself on, so this being based loosely on a story he knows well, as well as a character he knows, Goldilocks, definitely made him more interested and invested in this book from the get-go.

The book is absolutely beautiful, the illustrations are wonderfully gorgeous and there is lots going on on every page so there is plenty to look at and talk about with your child. Bobby and I loved looking through the books pictures and discussing what else was happening  - we counted animals and picked out shapes for example. The book is quick and easy to read, there are not a lot of words, but I particularly love how the author and illustrator use different fonts, as it keeps things interesting and adds to the lovely imagery in the book. 

Even though the main character is a girl, Bobby still enjoyed the story and I feel that he still managed to relate to her, partly because as I mentioned, he knows of her character, but also because he can identify similarities in their journey of learning how to use the potty. The book is funny in parts, it is useful resource and tool in the potty training journey and I feel the fact that it is based on a well known fairy tale and character makes it more enjoyable for children - they can join in with the 'too small, too big and just right' wording that is taken and adapted from the traditional Goldilocks story. This was something Bobby really enjoyed and it made the book more interactive and immersive for him. The book made excellent use of colour and is bright, engaging and a work of art.

All in all, this book is the perfect resource for any parent currently taking their child through the tricky stage of potty training, it allows children to relate to the character, to learn and to see the benefits of no longer wearing a nappy. It allows for discussion between you and your child which is wonderful and it has really helped us in our personal journey!

This is a fantastic, colourful, concise book all about potty training with Goldilocks as the main character. My daughter was soo excited to read this and she wasn't disappointed. The message is clear that Golidlocks was getting a little tired of her "soggy" nappies and wanted to be a big girl and wear pants. The language chosen is gentle and age appropriate. The illustrations are gorgeous and my daughter also loved the endpapers spotting the three bears amongst all the fantastic detail. It really encouraged my daughter to have a nappy free day and she chose similar "pants" to Goldilocks...obviously. Hooray! Here's to more nappy free days. A lovely book, saying all the right things about potty training.

What a fun book!  My daughter loved the story, and really giggled at poor little Goldilocks when she didn't quite make it to the potty in time!  This book will no doubt become invaluable to us as we embark on potty training in the next few months!

I read it to DexterLogan aged 4 aged 4 & to MiloPercy aged 2 aged 2

Ever since we received this book, it's been the "go to" book for a bedtime story. My 4 year old loves it.

It's a book which is aimed at kids starting to potty train, but my little one loves it despite already being potty trained.

I think it will be a great book to read to my 2 year old once he starts using the potty.

The illustrations are simple, but charming. :)

I read it to IRE aged 5 aged 5 , to TAME aged 3 aged 3 & to PFE aged 1 aged 1

In this story a very little Goldilocks is looking for pants and a potty that are just right! Will she find them? And will she get to grips with potty training? This brilliantly illustrated book really gave my little ones the giggles. They found Goldilocks' potty possibilities (a teacup and a welly) very funny indeed. Leigh's illustrations are bright and expressive and really capture the imagination. I particularly like the fact that Goldilocks keeps trying and eventually gets potty training just right! This really is a fantastic take on the traditional Goldilocks tale and although it may not solve your potty training dilemmas (can any book?!), it certainly adds a little fun to what is otherwise a pretty soggy experience!

This is a charming book and it makes potty training seem fun.  
My little girl loves to read it with me every time. It tells a story about a little girl Goldilocks who wants to wear big girl pants .
Large picture book with big and fabulous illustrations which an attractive appearance for young readers.
Great book to use during potty training as encouragement.

A lovely story with bright, colourful illustrations.

We are soon to start potty training my little girl and this story is a good way to introduce the subject, having the story based on Goldilocks is great as my little one loves the story.

A must have book for all potty trained and non potty trained children

This is a lovely book, and I would recommend it to anyone who is ready to potty train their little princess. I have been reading this book to my daughter who is 4 months old. She seems to enjoy it, and likes to look at the bright pictures inside. I am hoping this book will be really useful when it comes to potty training her in the future.

I read this book to my two year old daughter, who is on the cusp of toilet training. She really enjoyed the story and kept asking for it to be read again and again. The book has lovely pictures and is a great started book for toilet training

A lovely looking book but not a very inspiring story. My daughter is starting to potty train and I thought this would be helpful but we wasn't that impressed and she hasn't asked for the book to be read again
