Poop is everywhere; and, to paraphrase the phrase from the title that has become ubiquitous in our everyday life, everybody does it.
As a mom of a 3 year old boy, this book was absolute perfection. Talking about poop is the newest obsession, so what more could a kid want in a book? Well, how about a new and expanded edition? That’s exactly what we have here!
Everyone Poops is the perfect balance of silliness and reality. The classic book on toddler pooping, it has been repackaged and expanded. And, thankfully so. Poop is everywhere; and, to paraphrase the phrase from the title that has become ubiquitous in our everyday life, everybody does it. Children, especially the toddler set, have a fascination with everything pooping. And, it’s no big surprise. The book’s target age range is precisely those in the potty-training years. By demystifying poop, the book accomplishes with silliness and humor, what grownups often fail to do by making things more difficult.
Filled with illustrations of animals and humans relieving themselves it offers a huge variety for comparison . Its colorful and amusing illustrations will keep children entertained, particularly during toilet training. Parents can use this book to discuss how different animals eliminate waste, compared to humans. Do they poop the same as us? How do they do it differently? It opens a whole new world of conversation, while ensuring that children know that it is a natural part of everyone’s day.
