This hilarious picture book is about a sloth on the go. A sloth who is . . . very slowly . . . making his way to a major milestone: potty training!

Today is Sloth’s big day. He’s excited. But he’s also nervous.

What if something happens? What if NOTHING happens?

Sloth Went is a book about poop. But it’s also an adventure story about facing your fears, gaining independence, and learning to do what you have to. Even if, as in Sloth’s case, it takes a little while to get there.

Long Journey of Mister Poop/El Gran Viaje del Senor Caca
Written by & illustrated by Marie Lafrance
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-7

Caca. Poop. Number two. Kids have a thousand names for it. Don't they want to know where it comes from? "The Fantastic Voyage of Senor Caca" shows kids the hows and whys.

A smart wolf in a lab coat leads kids on a journey through their digestive system. A little girl eats an apple for a snack (crunch, crunch), and the apple drops into the esophagus (glug, glug) before a stop in the stomach. At each stop along the way the wolf explains in simple scientific terms what the body is doing. After the pit stop in the stomach, what remains of the apple must enter the small intestine (gurgle, gurgle), then the large intestine, and finally . . . well, you know. Hint: It doesn't smell like roses here.

This delightful book marries Angele Delaunois' kid-sized scientific text with Marie Lafrance's joyful kinetic illustrations to teach children what really does go on inside their bodies.

Whose Poop is That?
Written by Darrin Lunde & illustrated by Kelsey Oseid
picture book
Recommend Ages: 3-7

Poop! Ewwww!

No, don’t say “Ewwww.” Ask, “Whose poop is that?” This simple, and yes, charming book asks this question about seven examples of animal poop. By investigating visual clues, young readers can learn to identify the animal through its droppings. For instance, find a sample of poop with bits of bone and tufts of hair. Turn the page to learn it came from a fox!

Kelsey Oseid’s illustrations are both accurate and beautiful. Backmatter includes further information about the poop and what scientists can learn from an animal’s droppings.
