‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)

Age Range: Under_5
This is a humorous picture book with a simple message – “I poo and you poo too. Every living thing has to eat, and so everybody poos”. Some animals poo on land, some poo in the water while others do it on the move. There are different kinds of poo with different smells and different sizes. So all living things, including humans, poo too!
This is a wonderful picture book to introduce young children to a subject that can be difficult to explain. Japanese author and illustrator Taro Gomi has certainly approached this topic with lots of humour. His illustrations are very expressive and adapt wonderfully to the ‘awkward’ nature of the subject.
Everybody Poos will definitely find its right place in a picture book box in a library and to use in the classroom.
