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
School Library Journal

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.

    abstract storytelling with no resolution

    Our 2 1/2 year old was terrified to poop. After several months of trying different techniques (psychological and medicinal) someone suggested this book. Willing to try anything, we ordered it.

    I was not impressed. The story within a story concept was too abstract for my son. Not sure how picking up ones trash and keeping their house clean equates to not being afraid to poop. Also the book makes a clear connection between eating food & pooping. Which, in our case, was not a connection we wanted made (DS was already eating less and we were afraid he'd stop eating if he knew it lead to pooping). Lastly the little boy goes to the Dr who gives advice (eat food that makes poop soft) and the story ends with the Dr promising to call in a week to see how things are. The boy responds "Okay, but I might be on the potty!" There is NO RESOLUTION. Nowhere in the book did the little boy have a poop that didn't hurt. Nowhere did he feel better after pooping.

    We used the pictures but completely changed the wording of the story to better fit our problem. I think we read the book a total of 3 times, it wasn't helpful.

    Thankfully we were able to remedy our son's problems, but this book was not part of the solution.

    Highly Recommended

    This book helped my daughter understand why she was so scared to go to the bathroom. I have NEVER written a review for a book and was compelled to because this book in connection with the book entitled Where's The Poop? (along with Pedia-lax fiber gummies) was the perfect combination for success. I thought my daughter was not potty trainable - she will soon be 5 years old and still would only poop in a pull-up. Within a week of reading these two books it's as if we have a different child in the house. There is no stress, no crying, no drama. After going to the potty she now shouts from the bathroom that she has a surprise for us! Who would have thought that poop in the potty would be the best surprise ever. :-)))

    The story with-in a story was too confusing for my 3 1/2 year old. She now thinks that Dinosaurs poking her with a stick are the reason her tummy hurts.
