Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is intended for children who are afraid to going to the bathroom. Dr. Bennett, a pediatrician, has adapted his approach based on what he does with his patients in his practice. In the story, Ryan, who is afraid to poop, is taken to the doctor because of the tummy aches he gets from holding in his poop. The doctor tells him a story about where poop comes from and the things that can make pooping easier. It includes a basic explanation of what poop is, where it travels in the body and a poop program to be used by children who are having difficulties. The basic information and illustrations of the body and how food travels through it provides children with some basic health information about their bodies and how it functions. There is also a section for parents giving them suggestions for toilet training. Reviewer: Leila Toledo

PreS-Gr 1
Ryan is a small boy with an increasingly large problem-fear of pain as he uses the potty has created both a mental and physical block. Understanding Dr. Gold eases the child's worries by telling him a story about Bill, a coyote who never cleans up after himself. Relating the idea of a house bulging with trash to Ryan's predicament allows the physician to enlist the boy to become the "boss" of his body, much as Bill becomes the boss of cleaning up his house. A pastel palette of watercolor and ink cartoons illustrates the dinosaur-loving child and his family. Simple, labeled diagrams depict the pathway of food through the intestines and into the toilet. Written by a pediatrician, the fictionalized text creates a positive partnership between children, parents, and physicians to practice healthy eating and digestive habits. A listing of foods and their impact upon digestion, a detailed program for children suffering from constipation, and a note to parents are appended. Although not a necessity for libraries, this book would be welcomed by parents who face a similar situation or in doctors' waiting rooms.
