Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that children will find this book immensely funny and will love to point out the excrement from each animal. Colorful paintings show animals from around the world.

What's the story?

Ever wonder how a camel poops? A fish? A raccoon? Your child probably has. Taro Gomi scientifically compares and contrasts how animals of all kinds eliminate waste in this amusing and direct toilet-training book. You might be squeamish about reading and looking at page after page of poop, but your kids will be laughing out loud.

Is it any good?


No other toilet-training book gets kids giggling as fast as Everyone Poops. With humor and bold, unembellished illustrations, Taro Gomi answers the questions kids want to ask, such as "Which end is the snake's behind?" and "What does whale poop look like?" The text scientifically analyzes the many different ways in which animals relieve themselves, and the graphic pictures of all of these variations will delight children.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the different ways in which animals relieve themselves. Which animal's toileting habits seemed the most weird or funny to you? How is it different from the way humans poop?
