Reviews - What do customers think about Does a Pig Flush??
Bathroom Decor Dec 12, 2007
I saw this book at the public library, and immediately thought it would be a fun way to decorate my bathroom. It is filled with bright colors, fun illustrations, and silly lines about animals not pooping in toilets. I made acrylic frames and mounted 10 of the pages in my bathroom. They are fun and always get giggles from my guests.
Wouldn't recommend Dec 1, 2006
The first few pages of this book cover where different animals poop, which is what I thought the majority of this book would be about. But the book goes away from that into an attempt by the author to persuade children to use the potty. I don't like that he writes "Poop is smelly. Dads and moms are willing to change their baby's diapers for quite a long time." I don't want my kids to have a negative view of potty training - seeing it as something they need to learn so mommy doesn't have to put up with their diapers. I am very disappointed with this book and wish I could have gotten a refund.
Great Book For the Bathroom Nov 21, 2005
My son wants me to read this book over and over to him while he's on the toliet. The end is a bit weak but he just LOVES the animals and saying EWWWWWW and pointing to all the poop. He just laughs and laughs and it makes his potty training fun for him. Even though the end is not too great the book is great for my son so I gave it 5 stars. (I also learned that cow poop is called 'Flop')
Pig Latin Jun 20, 2004
Okay, Okay, Okay...hold on a minute:
1) Pigs are cloven, and yes perhaps if they applied enough pressure to the toilet handle perhaps they could flush, but come on seriously? Flushing with a hoof?
2) Pigs are short, hence, they could never reach the toilet handle without help. It would take at least two smart pigs, one balencing the other to flush. Not likely, friends.
3) "What if the pig jumped?" Whatever. I've heard this argument so many times, I'm sick and tired of the "Verticalist Theory". The highest jumping pig's vertical ever recorded was six inches. That leaves about two and a half feet to cover to flush. Insipid.
4) Pigs go outside. Okay, a few eccentric pig-owners have been known to keep their pigs indoors but a vast majority of pig-life is spent outdoors. Ever heard of a trough? A sty? Pig-iron? Wake up Farmer Browns of the world!
5) Finally, pigs are free.
Great Book I've Never Heard of Jun 5, 2004
My sister is trying to potty train my two year old nephew. I was visiting one night and he had me read "once upon a potty." i thought it was okay. i asked my sister if she had bought "everyone poops" yet and she had never heard of it. i was a bit surprised, as it had a sort of cult following when i was in high school. so i got on ole this site to order "everyone poops." i decided to follow their recommendations and also pick up "does a pig flush?". it has become one of THE books my nephew wants people to read. the illustrations are good and the text is engaging. it gets a bit didactic toward the end, but my nephew doesn't seem to mind. i think his favorite part is answering the questions at the beginning concerning "who" flushes. i think it might be one of the better potty books.
