Have you ever wondered all about poop? Why our bodies make such stinky goop? And where does it go after we wipe when the poop is flushed into a pipe? So begins the adventure of an inquisitive little boy and his charming dog as they discover how poop is formed and where it ends up. With humorous rhymes, children learn about the digestive system, septic tanks, sewage plants, and even proper bathroom etiquette. At the end of the book there's a bonus Five Things to Remember About Poop page as well as an educational poop trivia. Written by award-winning mom blogger Kate Hayes, this book will delight children (and parents) with its funny, yet educational, take on poop.
