    One thought on “Flush: The Scoop on Poop Throughout the Ages”

    1. When it comes to the body, there is more than just barf (see last weekend's reading delights). In this book, Neo was able to learn about how history has handled bodily functions and the "plumbing" of it all. Curious facts for adult and child alike!

    2. Boys would love this book. This book actually has a lot of historical facts about how people went to the bathroom and what they did with some of it. If yiu can get passed the grossness of the concept it is actually pretty interesting.

    3. Flush" spirals children through the ages from the time before toilet paper to today's self flushing potties. Along the way kids will discover some downright disgusting dirt on the the story behind doody. They'll learn why kings and queen avoid castle moats, why umbrellas were good on a medieval sunny day, and how differently the business is done depending on where you live.As you might have already guessed, this scoop on poop is filled with some very amusing and colorful illustrations that pleas [...]

    4. Everything and more (almost) you ever wanted to know about how toilets evolved rhyme. Actually, this is geared to younger kids (you can tell 'cause it's a big rhyme, and looking at the book cover), but it is informative. I learned things I never knew about the uses of urine, thankfully, most are no longer in use. And that was the first page. Almost each section also has a side (literally) bar that explains a bit more about what was said in the rhyme on that page. Some things I knew, some I learn [...]

    5. I'm giving this a 4 overall, but a 5 for gag-factor. DON'T read this while you eat (like I foolishly did)! It's a rather peculiar book in that each "chapter" of information is told in the form of a poem, with a little additional fact off to the side. The first poem, "Urine," was enough to put me off my food, and the illustrations didn't help. Kids ought to love this! Again, my thanks to Warren (or Walter) for pointing this one out.

    6. Flush: The Scoop on Poop is full of fun little poems about the history of how people dispose of bodily waste (i.e. poop). The poems cover everything from the uses of urine to toilet paper to chamber pots and garderobes to toilets in space. I especially enjoyed the "Fun Facts" sections that accompanied every poem. These paragraphs gave the historical information about whatever topic was covered in the poem. Very fun to read and informational!

    7. A history of how this subject has been. . .ummm. . .handled. Going back a little further than POOPENDOUS and POOP HAPPENED to go back and capture this poetic approach to non-fiction. Each poem is anchored by a fact in the sidelines and margins of the page. Fantastic artwork throughout!

    8. oh what fun and believe it or not, very interesting historical facts about toilet paper, toilets and the like. written in poetry. bright and funny illustrations. not as detailed as The Truth About Poop.

    9. Hahahaha! I loved books like this when I was a kid. Tells you how poop is gotten rid of all through the world, through the ages, and even is space- through rhyming poems (there are sensible, factual sentences on the edges of the pages)! Awesome.

    10. Things I never knew and also never thought aboutd now I will not think about them some more!! Very funny but REALLY yucky.

    11. This book discusses the history and disposal of poop. I'm sure it will be a hit with my students. What is especially great is that the information in written in verse!

    12. To funny to really comment about. You need to read this. I do not want to spoil it for anyone. The title explains it all.
