Description

Potty time fun! Elephant poops on the grass. Fish poops in the water. Snake poops on the sand. Where do you poop?

You poop here! In a potty, of course! Fun pictures of animals--an ant, an alligator, a bat, and more--make this a perfect potty training book--and more! It's especially appropriate for inquisitive, science-minded toddlers and preschoolers who are curious about how their bodies work.

With an author's note about "What is poop?" and fun facts about the animals featured in this book.


Praise For You Poop Here

★ "In a field filled with gendered books about toilet training, this refreshing title stands out by encouraging all children to see pooping, and by extension the use of the potty, as a universal, cross-gender, interspecies need. . . . An excellent first purchase for anyone looking to expand their potty learning collection”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Addressing audiences still in or recently out of diapers, Meisel emits an elemental info dump based on the notion that every creature poops somewhere. . . . Following views of discreetly posed children sitting on toilets that are billed as, parenthetically, the place to pee, too, he closes with a deposit of facts about what poop is, how much of it elephants can produce (300 pounds a day!), and other nuggets of natural history."—Booklist

"A parade of animals pooping in their natural habitats leads to human toddlers proudly sitting on the potty. . . . In all, eighteen smiling creatures from a variety of habitats poop on uncluttered pages. A simple line of text accompanies each cheery illustration. . . . Everyone Poops will always be number one, but You Poop Here is a solid number two."The Horn Book

"While potty books abound, Meisel’s stands out in its unvarnished directness and respect, simple words and pictures speaking directly at the level of young children. . . . A godsend for caregivers on the prowl for potty-training"Kirkus Reviews
