A funny picture book about the ever-popular word poop

Poop is fun to say and fun to rhyme! I've read this out loud to a few of my poor co-workers and giggled every time. Poop.

This is what I want in a story: relatability. I, too, go around pointing at things and going, "Poop" and also finding things that rhyme with other things.

Poop, who doesn't giggle a little when someone, especially a librarian or teacher, says that several times. This story is storytime pure gold. Funny, short, and there is an obvious focus. Poop is a simple book that focuses, in a silly way, on words that rhyme with poop. I paired this book with "I Ain't Gonna Paint No More."

Focus: Phonological Awareness, rhyming words.
Storytime: Toddler to 2nd grade

I find this book so hilarious. Granted, you get to say "poop" a lot so I know it will be a huge hit with the storytime kids. However, why I marked it under "early literacy capabilities" is due to its rhyming nature. As children look at the illustrations of the book, they can pick up on other events taking place......evenings or actions that rhyme with the word "poop." For this reason, I will be using this book for my ECRTR sessions.

The title alone gets anyones attention but not revealing anything about the topic of this picture book. It is a book about rhyming and there are a lot of words that rhyme with poop. A racoon yells out poop but when the reader turns the page it turns out it is not poop it is a coop with jacket and jeans wearing chickens. This repeats several times for “loop”, “hoop” “soup”, and “scoop”. A mouse is the character to correct the racoon and they both use speech bubbles which makes the text clear and ...more

What is the point of this book? The rhymes aren't really original. I think the whole thing is attention-getting, but nothing beyond that. Would not read a second time, or add to a collection for kiddos. They might find it enjoyable, but children's publishing is too competitive anymore for this kind of thing. Unimpressed.

Racoon is obsessed with the word 'poop'. His friends all give him rhyming words instead, coop, loop, soup, scoop. When he gets a five scoop ice cream cone and it falls over, he again says 'poop'. Instead of giving him a rhyming word, his friend Mouse simply says 'yep'. And for those who really want poop, the little pug leaves a poop on the last page.
This simple book has very little words. Raccoon and Mouse see a round object at the bottom of the page and Raccoon calls it "Poop". Then Mouse says "No, ..." and the object is something that rhymes. The end two pages are a funny "poop" although not every parent would probably appreciate it. It got giggles throughout our house.

This was alright. It was just words rhyming with poop. The end was cute though.

Ok, we all know it's just an excuse to say "poop" a lot, but the intended audience won't be complaining. Living with multiple pets, I don't even want to know how many times a day I say "poop!"

I think the very impactful to the reader it explains how our society is eating us up, the rat race, the murder, seeing everyone as a smile and not important, its explain all about our society

This is a very simple story. I liked the illustration style. I think the title meant to catch people's interest, but the story fell flat. Not great.

Book itself is good. Pages are hard to turn though, making it challenging for storytime.

Can you imagine inviting your storytime kids to say "Poop!" and then you read the next page? hahahahahaha!

A preschool and up book about two animals finding objects which one always indetifies as poop and the others says no and says the correct name which is close to poop. Word play

Honestly, my sister really wanted me to read this book, so I did. I would say that this book is eccentric, under some circumstances humorous, and filled with unsophisticated terminology. (Actually, there's hardly any terminology at all. The visual delineations are literally the fundamental structure of the plot itself!) In the book, there is a racoon that perpetually says the term "poop." His polite friend, a mouse, consistently shows him that not every object made up of matter has to be defined ...more
