From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1-- Well yes, they do, but does anyone really need an entire book on the subject? In this Japanese import, readers are informed on page one that "an elephant makes a big poop, a mouse makes a tiny poop." Later on, they are told that it comes in different shapes, colors, and smells, and that, depending on who is doing it, it is done in different places. The summarizing statement is that "all living things eat, so everyone poops." However, there is never any explanation offered as to why. Overall, the text is merely a series of rather dull pictures of back ends of people on toilets and animals, with captions identifying them and occasionally posing questions such as "What does a whale's poop look like?" (No answer is provided.) There is even a little joke: "A one hump camel makes a one hump poop. And a two hump camel makes a two hump poop. Just kidding." I wish I were. --Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI

Anyways, I cannot comment on whether this is a good potty training book or not. What I can say is that it does something else incredibly important: it helps kids realize that anything that eats, poops, and that poops are OKAY... not something to be ashamed of. That it's not something bad, maybe a little gross but not so negative that they could never talk about it. To me, that's a lot more valuable than potty-training, although I can definitely see how the priority would be off that when you are trying to potty train a kid. And if they get a little confused, that's okay. Kids get confused by things, and then they learn. If they thing every*thing* poops for a little bit, or mislabel something... that's fine, until 5 kids are really still working on their ability to categorize things, and they make mistakes.
I would love it if *every* adult and child read this book, and realize that yes, everyone really does poop. That means it's okay, right? Right. Poop is way too taboo in our world and our wastewater is a serious issue. Stuff doesn't just go down the drain and disappear. Can Taro Gomi make a kid's book on that part, too? :)
