Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5–The astonishing and often repulsive uses of urine by humans and animals are chronicled in this companion to The Truth about Poop (Viking, 2004). Packed with anecdotes and facts, this book about the importance of pee has subtle humor. With clever wordplay for chapter titles, e.g., Urine the Army Now, the author grabs readers' attention and educates them with short, quick bits of information. The cartoon illustrations add humor to a subject that students will already be giggling over. Elementary-aged boys in particular will be drawn to the yucky grossness of the topic but will end up learning from the text. A book full of interesting tidbits that students will remember and love to share.–Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA

From Booklist

With books available about gas and poop, could urine be far behind? Goodman, the author of The Truth about Poop (2004), tells kids everything they wanted to know about pee--and some of it is quite startling. After explaining how urine has saved lives (and yes, drinking is involved), she takes a look at physiology or "pee basics"; the how-tos of urinating (standing up, sitting down); "Peeing through history"; how animals pee; and uses for urine (vitamins, gun powder, and many, many others). As in the previous book, Smith provides jaunty, sometimes silly cartoon-style illustrations, including one of a woman pouring urine through a funnel into her husband's ear (a method pioneers used to treat earaches). The journey from drinking liquids to making urine is amusing, but a little convoluted for clarity. For reasons not readily discernable, some terms in the text are spelled out in bright yellow--among them, neon bright, stinky, no underpants, piddle-paks, and chipped pee off the shuttle. It's a book kids will pore over. Ilene Cooper

More About the Author

To write my nonfiction books for kids, I have flown onto the polar icecap with the Air Force, shared a bathroom with a tarantula in the Amazon, and spent three days at a Monster Truck rally without ever buying fried dough. Which was the hardest? I'll let you guess.

My book All in Just One Cookie was an ALA Notable and On This Spot was a Washington Post Best Picture Book of its year. My newest books? 2012--See How They Run: Campaign Dreams, Election Schemes, and the Race to the White House and It's a Dog's Life: How Man's Best Friend Sees, Hears, and Smells the World. 2013--How Do You Burp in Space?: And Other Tips Every Space Tourist Needs to Know.

Besides writing for kids, I speak at conferences, schools, and libraries and teach writing for children at Lesley University's MFA program. Visit me at www.susangoodmanbooks.com.

"The Truth About Poop" & "Gee Whiz! It's all About Pee"

First I bought "The Truth About Poop" for my almost-six-year-old boy. He LOVES it. He wants me to read it to him all the time. I followed up the purchase with "Gee Whiz! It's all About Pee" and it's another hit!

Since my little guy is almost six, I'm doing most of the reading, for now, but there are parts of the book that he can can "help" me read. Those parts will get bigger as his reading improves. The text and pictures are great, and there's plenty of trivia that's news to me.

I think all boys (and many girls) this age have a fascination with bodily functions. My kid also has a love of learning, science and "how things work" (me and his mom were both like that as kids). There are plenty of poop/pee/fart books for this age range (and I now own several), but for the scientifically inquisitive child these are the best I've found. The other books on these subjects provided some entertainment and amusement, but these are the two that he keeps asking for again and again.

This is a good book to use in counseling children that have problems with enuresis. It teaches them what pee is and that every living thing urinates in a natural helpful manner. It also helps them to be more aware of when they need to "pee".

I love this book! I first saw and read this book in a waiting room and immediately knew it would make a great gift for nieces and nephews. It captivated me with the great illustrations and fascinating information. As for the nieces and nephews...they gasped at the title at first but couldn't help but read it right away. After all isn't it a subject little kids love to talk about?
If all informational books were written and illustrated in this style then we would be so much smarter!
