Everybody Poos by Taro Gomi

All living things do different sorts of poo. Some are different colours, others have different smells or sizes. Some do it on land, some poo in water. Some poo in a toilet, or in a potty, or in their nappies. Taking a no-nonsense approach to the bodily function, this important picture book helps encourage children not to be ashamed about potty training, reassuring them that everybody poos!


Well, he's right. Gomi's seminal work for kids is a meditation on the act of defecation.
