Useful Books

Of course, all books are useful in their own way. But here are some books that we have used to help brainwash subtly convince the Nugget to do what we want him to do. Book characters are just way more convincing than parental units. Put them in your arsenal, and please suggest your own!

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey - The Nugget will pretty much gobble up any fruit when we are reading about Little Sal picking and eating berries. Thanks, Uncle T!

Chugga Chugga Poo Poo - The Potty Train by David Hochman - Helps get the Nugget to the potty when he would rather be playing with his toys.

Pajama Time by Sandra Boynton - A great bedtime wind down story. PJs, toothbrushing, and tuck-in are all presented as fun activities for your balking toddler.

Baby Gund Bathtime by Roger Priddy - Smiling babies help entice the Nugget to his own bathtub.

No Hitting! by Karen Katz - Provides non-violent ideas like drumming, squishing clay, and scribbling on paper. Lift-the-flap features and Karen Katz's amazing illustrations keep this one high on the Nugget's most-requested list.
