Everyone poops. It's a normal bodily function, so why not find out how our bodily wastes have been handled through the ages. In general this book was written for 8-12 yr olds, but as an adult, I enjoyed it,found it very interesting and even learned a few things. The author has done a cute job with making the information available in rhyme and funny drawings. I plan to give this book to my 10 yr old nephew.

I love this book, and so do my all of my classes. I read this to my third graders and fifth graders. General ewwwws all through the book, but the kids beg for me to reread the book throughout the year. Interesting way to present non-fiction literature. In fact this was the second time I've bought the books, as one of my former students liked the book so much they missed returning to me.

This is a children's book. If you have a 7 year old child, perfect!
