  • Title: Everyone Poops

  • Illustrator: Taro Gomi
  • Publisher: Kane/Miller Book Publishers
  • Publication year: First published in Japan in 1977, Kane/Miller Book Publishers 1993
  • Brief Summary: From Kane/Miller Book Publishers-“Since we all eat, we all must poop. All of us! Everyone! Everyone Poops. This wonderful, modern-day toddler classic presents information that children both want and need in a refreshingly honest, informative, and age-appropriate way.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I don’t know that this could be used for any particular curriculum but this book would be helpful for preschoolers and kindergarteners as they learn about their bodies and bodily functions.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I think the very simple illustrations done with backgrounds in primary colors would resonate and hold children’s attention.
