From Publishers Weekly
"An elephant makes a big poop. A mouse makes a tiny poop," and so the text goes, describing all sorts of creatures and people who eat and thus defecate. Ages 18mos.-4yrs.

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
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

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!
Learning to about poop is one of life's first traumas for many children. Pooping is probably the first "something we don't talk about" that many children encounter. (Unfortunately, there will be more.) There is absolutely no reason not to talk comfortably about poop, however, since, as this book aptly demonstrates, everybody (and every thing)does it.
"Everybody Poops" is an excellent ice breaker. It allows a child to think and talk about something that is undoubtedly on his or her mind. It helps adults talk with children about something they want and need to know-- but that adults are too often uncomfortable discussing.
Don't leave your child in the dark. Read "Everybody Poops" together. It is a good precedent to set for dealing with and talking about those "untouchable" issues.
