Good practice for parents to talk to kids about stuff... Sep 26, 2008
I grew up with this book. It was never a funny book but rather a serious one. I liked it that way.
My parents were never afraid of the subject of poops, and why should we be? This book is to remind people of the very natural and obvious fact about our body that people tend to ignore.
Unfortunately, this book is not for everyone. This book is only for those who are honest and open.
This is a good book for parents to practice talking about facts about our body. If you couldn't do this book, you will fail to provide sex and drug education to your children also. If you believe that you can skip and ignore those subjects raising your kids, you may skip this book as well.
Subtle, but gets the clear message across Sep 18, 2008
My 2 year old daughter loves animals and when she was only really talking for a couple months, 50% of her vocabulary was probably the names of the different animals. Thus, it was no big surprise that she LOVES this book. I got it because my pediatrician talked to me about potty training at our 2 year check-up, though dd showed absolutely no interest in potty training at all and I wasn't even going to bother until she pressed me (I actually prefer the convenience of diapers). The doctor said that the first step was to get some books to familiarize her with the topic and to just start talking about our body functions more with dd. Well, I started with this book since it was so well reviewed and it has remained her favorite book for 4 months running now. Granted, she's not potty trained at ALL. Not even close. I haven't even bought a potty. But she still adores this book and goes around at random times saying, "An elephant makes a biiiiiiiiiggggg poop!"
I find that the message is subtle, but very clear as to what is appropriate for us humans to do when we go to the bathroom, but interspersed with the different practices of animals. The illustration is actually very nice, though it took me a few dozen readings just to get past the weirdness of looking at animal poop and humans squatting on a toilet.
The true parent test (aside from whether it helps your child poop in the toilet - but like I said, we're not there yet) is whether you'll mind reading it a hundred times a day. And actually, this is one of my more favorite books. I let a few of my lawyer friends read it too and they liked it as well. I highly recommend it!
Good book for little ones Sep 18, 2008
I am trying to teach my 26 month old to use the potty, and just talking about poop and pee helps. She likes to say the title of the book when she picks it up. It makes me giggle, but she is very serious about it. Lots of pictures and not many words, which is good for her short attention span.
Just a cliché Sep 15, 2008
I was so excited to buy this book and then read it and found out it was a flop. It is supposed to make kids understand that it's ok to poop because Everyone Poops. But there is no real lesson here. It just shows animals pooping and asks rhetorical questions. ("What does whale poop look like?" What parent can answer that when a child insists on knowing?!)
This book is supposed to be iconic. But after you read it, you'll see that it's just a cliché.
