Book Review: “Too Big for Diapers”

By Colleen Brunetti, MEd

Too Big for Diapers (a Sesame Street Babies publication)

Too Big For Diapers bookToo Big For Diapers sample pages

In five quick page turns, this book follows Baby Ernie (shown as a stuffed doll) through the potty training process. It has very simple words describing what he is doing on each page, stressing the โ€œstop and go!โ€ concept in a similar way to Potty Time.

The photos of the dolls and props are large and bold, likely very engaging, especially to children who are training a little bit on the younger side, or who absolutely love Sesame Street.

Baby Hopkins plushA really nice companion to this book might be our Baby Hopkins plush who can be snuggled with as the story is read, and used to act out what Baby Ernie is doing in the book.

  1. Too Big For Diapers was our main/favorite potty book before the Potty Time one came out. My kids seem to take it as a step-by-step guide which makes things easier on us, the parents! We have also used Hopkins and other “friends” to act out the story. It is the perfect length for a 1 yr old to follow.
