"Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi is part biology textbook, part sociological treatise and all celebration of a very natural process. Both my daughters begged me to read the book over and over again. They marveled at the enormity of the elephant's poop and searched with the skill of a scientist for the tiny specks which represent bug poop. The text is simple and straightforward but not without humor.

Lit Reactor

When cruising this genre, one immediately notices a subgenre of titles that look like children's books — they tend to be cute and small and richly illustrated — but were clearly never meant for children.

The Mockingbird

unfortunately, her decades of credibility-building writing more traditional books doesn’t quite seem to have earned her the credence/patience to write a book like this.
