Book Review: Toilet Tales

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Sort of a combination between Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi and Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing by Judi Barrett, this is a funny book giving reasons why different animals (giraffe, chicken, fish, snake, etc.) couldn’t use the toilet for reasons such as that “a giraffe could never fit through the door” and “A goat would just eat the toilet paper.”  In each picture an animal is shown interacting with the bathroom scene in a way inappropriate to the room’s design.  The book ends with “Toilets are meant for big kids like you.”  The humor is exactly right for children of an age to potty train or those who have recently achieved their goal.  This could be a fun addition to a bathroom reading basket, and wouldn’t be out of place in a general reading time.
