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.
