Book Review: The Gas We Pass: The Story of Farts

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Another My Body Science book in the spirit of Everyone Poops.  It’s more descriptive and explanatory, though, meaning it fits the 4-8 crowd better than 0-4.  I have boys, but I presume all small children are entertained by flatulence; this book capitalizes on this by providing humorous images of animals and people passing gas, while giving an introduction to the digestive process that produces it.  There is one image of nudity, with two people passing gas in a bathtub, and a  little boy is shown from the front.  Parents who object to the word “fart” can easily fill in a more polite alternative, except for the “fartheewell” ending.  The humor is mildly rude so I don’t recommend leaving this within arm’s reach if your children are in the habit of asking company for a read-aloud.
