Book Description

Sept. 1 1993 My Body Science

“Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi is part biology textbook, part sociological treatise and all celebration of a very natural process. Both my daughters begged me to read the book over and over again. They marveled at the enormity of the elephant`s poop and searched with the skill of a scientist for the tiny specks which represent bug poop. The text is simple and straightforward but not without humor.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Okay, so everyone does it--does everyone have to talk about it? True, kids at a certain stage of development may find the subject riveting--but their parents may well not want to read to them about it. Here we learn that birds do it, bees do it, kids with bended knees do it. We are told about big poop and little poop, animals that poop while moving and animals that poop from a stationary position, why and where people poop--in short, we get the scoop on poop. The pictures, far from Gomi's best work, leave nothing to the imagination either. In case the message hasn't sunk in, the final spread presents a chorus line of creatures, backsides forward, each producing poop. Call it what you will, by euphemism or by expletive, poop by any name seems an unsuitable picture book subject--a view not helped by this artless presentation. Ages 18 mos.-4 yrs.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Well yes, they do, but does anyone really need an entire book on the subject? In this Japanese import, readers are informed on page one that "an elephant makes a big poop, a mouse makes a tiny poop." Later on, they are told that it comes in different shapes, colors, and smells, and that, depending on who is doing it, it is done in different places. The summarizing statement is that "all living things eat, so everyone poops." However, there is never any explanation offered as to why. Overall, the text is merely a series of rather dull pictures of back ends of people on toilets and animals, with captions identifying them and occasionally posing questions such as "What does a whale's poop look like?" (No answer is provided.) There is even a little joke: "A one hump camel makes a one hump poop. And a two hump camel makes a two hump poop. Just kidding." I wish I were. --Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI

5.0 out of 5 stars very funny book to aid toilet learning Dec 30 2000
A hilarious book showing many kinds of animals, their poop, and describing where and how they poop (e.g. while walking). Also reviewed are the ways a baby poops in a diaper, small child in a potty, and older children and adults on a toilet. Hysterical graphics such as rear view of child sitting on toilet with the poop in midair, which we see between the gap in his buttock cheeks. Other scenes demonstrate how the toilet is flushed and the poop is washed down the pipes.
Illustrations are cartoon like. This was originally published in Japan and therefore the human characters are all Asian. How lucky for us English-speaking parents to have this translated version!
The goal of this book is to review with the child the progression of moving from diapers to toilets. It is a funny way to talk about poop with the child. Every child who has seen our book laughs out loud. Many adults who have seen our book think it is so funny. The exception is my husband who thinks this is just gross. If you need to interject some humor in the toilet learning process, read this to your child!

5.0 out of 5 stars poop poopedoop March 18 2004
I puchased this book for my 2 1/2yr old. He thinks it is hilarious. Kids don't think of poop as taboo. Why make them? It's no secret what you're doing in there. Not only did this book help with potty training, but got him reading more again after a bit of book bordom. As a bonus--most adults that find it in my house either remember it fondly or get a good laugh. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars GROW UP ALREADY!!!! March 17 2004
By A Customer
I found Everyone Poops to be very helpful in explaining the process to my 2 years old. It not only explains the process but it can help teach too; my daughter finally understands why she goes poop. Isnt that the purpose of the book, to teach? The Editorial reviews are closed minded. WHY NOT HAVE A BOOK ON POOP? If you can not explain your childs body to them, then you have no business being a parent! People need to get over the problems that they have discussing the human body. From sex to poop; Our kids need to know that their body is nothing to be ashamed of!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for teaching toddlers about poop March 4 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My husband was very skeptical about this book when I showed it to him. But after reading it a few times with my 2 year old he feels that it was a great choice.

My daughter loves reading this book. We can talk to her about how poop is normal and everyone does it. She reads the book on her own and has remembered the words to almost every page.

The illustrations are cute. Some picture are hard to see like the one of the alligator because all of the colors are so dark.

Fantastic book for parents introducing the potty or toilet teaching to their children.

The topic being discussed warrants depictions of poop, but I was expecting wittier text to accompany the illustrations. I also don't find the illustrations particularly interesting.

My daughter has been regularly trying out the potty since reading this book. It's quite a funny read and although she's not ready to potty train yet, it's giving her ideas

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the soon to be potty trained... Sept. 4 2000
This book explores every type of poop imaginable. Its size and the owner of the various types of poop from an elephant to a camel. Three year olds are fascinated by the subject. I bought this book when my son was two and he did not express any interest until about 3. Young girls may be interested sooner. This book explains that everyone poops and that poop is the byproduct of our food. Written in clear language with simple and tasteful illustrations, especially considering the subject, this book is for all parents of children who will soon be potty training. Highly recommended. There is simply no other book like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jan. 3 2000
By A Customer
This book lets toddlers know that it is OK to poop and that everyone does it. It is good for potting training, especially kids who don't want to release the BM in the toilet.
