One of our favorite family books is Everyone Poops.
In case you don’t know this book, it should be part of every young child’s library. The book tells about how all living creatures, big and small, poop. Even insects. Even snakes.
My children and I have the lines memorized:
“A one hump camel makes a one hump poop. And a two hump camel makes a two hump poop. Just kidding.”
Publishers Weekly gave the book a horrible review, “Okay, so everyone does it–does everyone have to talk about it?”
It’s fun to poop! It’s fun to talk about poop! Poop is part of life!
And don’t we, as parents, want to raise our children to be happy and confident pooper?
The review goes on to say, “Call it what you will, by euphemism or by expletive, poop by any name seems an unsuitable picture book subject.”
Unsuitable to whom?
Unsuitable to people who have no sense of humor, obviously.
