On Top of the Potty
On Top of the Potty and Other Get-Up-and-Go Songs by Alan Katz and David Catrow is simply the most hilarious book I've read in a long time. Having trouble convincing your child to use the toilet? There's nothing quite like a rousing musical number to motivate even the most stubborn of diaper wearers. How about "If You Gotta Go Do Poopy" to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It?" Or maybe "Don't Flush Strange Things in the Potty" to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." Perhaps the title track, "On Top of the Potty" to the tune of "On Top of Old Smokey!" My personal favorite is "Frankie Noodle," to the tune of "Yankee Doodle." Sing it with me: "Frankie Noodle Sat right down Right upon the potty And he made a pee and poop In front of everybody!"
