BOOK REVIEW: Everybody Poops by Justine Avery

Everybody Poops
Author: Justine Avery
Genre: Children's Picture Book
Publication Date: 15 November 2019

Book Description:
Taking the taboo out of POO!

Everybody poops—it’s true! It’s time to blow the door right off the bathroom, and shine a light on what happens on the loo.

For the little ones just discovering the contents of their diapers and nappies, the bigger ones needing reassurance that their most mysterious bodily function is as natural as can be, and the biggest ones who still hold a fondness for toilet humor, Everybody Poops! is piled high with bold and audacious illustrations and the truth about who’s doing the pooing: every body is doing it!

Sure to incite giggling fits and all-ages laughter, Everybody Poops! exposes the least talked about fact we all have in common the world over and among all walks of life, benefiting the youngest of us by opening the discussion, promoting comfort with their bodies, and helping them feel included. Poo pride!

The title of the book is the content readers are introduced to. No one wants to discuss pooping, but everyone does it. Children who are potty training will find comfort in knowing that pooping is a usual occurrence and that thought might help them with this period of their life. The book doesn't incite anything beyond this. I found some of the imagery inappropriate and uncomfortable, but the book overall does what it says on the tin: it showcases that everyone poops.
