Discover the silliness of one of the most natural functions of our bodies in the laugh-out-loud children's educational picture book, Everybody Toots! (Everybody Potties Series) by Justine Avery. Did you know that everybody in the world toots? You toot, your mom toots, your schoolteacher toots. Yes, even the most famous and sophisticated people toot - every day! But can animals toot? Birds, dogs, cats, reptiles, fish, and rodents all have something in common: they all toot! Even insects can toot! Have fun exploring one of our body's most basic - if looked-down-upon - actions as we learn the truth of human and animal bodies: everybody toots!

Following the international phenomenon, Everybody Poops, the tongue-in-cheek picture book, Everybody Toots takes young readers through our natural world to discover a surprising fact. Playfully depicting just how common tooting is, this delightful story by award-winning author Justine Avery will encourage a few giggles along with lots of laughter as children and adults flip through its vibrantly colorful pages. The charming narrative shows the reader how silly it is to be embarrassed by our body and introduces young children to the existence of their digestive system in a captivating way. With bright and humorous illustrations, this adorable picture book advocates body acceptance with levity. As the third book in the Everybody Potties Series, this story continues the legacy of humor while still teaching kids valuable lessons about how our bodies work. This story is bound to enchant the young and young at heart.

Everybody Toots! is an educational tale written by Justine Avery and illustrated by Naday Meldova. No matter how young or old you are and regardless of your occupation, your wealth, or your status, everybody toots. It is nothing to be ashamed of as it is a natural response to when you eat as your body processes the food which has passed your lips. Tooting is nothing at all to be embarrassed or ashamed of, and it can happen regardless of the time of day or what you happen to be doing at the time. Tooting is a natural part of everybody's day.

Justine Avery's tale, written in the most basic way and accompanied by the wonderful artwork of Naday Meldova, explains to even the youngest of audiences that flatulence is a natural part of life. Passing wind does not make you somebody without manners or somebody who "doesn't know any better." It is our body's response to the fact that we have eaten, and that our body is processing the food which has entered it so that it is able to make its way out again. Although one of the most common responses to tooting is to laugh - sometimes uncontrollably - it is important to keep in mind that our body is signaling that it is simply doing its job. Not everyone can control when and where their toot becomes audible. When it happens to you, just smile, nod your head, and know that things inside you are working just as they should. I was smiling throughout most of this book, knowing that younger readers are learning something quite important about their bodies, and applaud Justine Avery's message within Everybody Toots! so that they know they are not doing anything unnatural. I highly recommend Everybody Toots! for early readers aged 4-8 years of age.

Everybody Toots! is a great, funny book for every household. The creators of this story have offered a fun way of teaching children that being a human and everything that comes with it is normal. Justine Avery and Nada Meldova explain how everybody toots; even if people don’t admit it, we all do! The illustrations accompanying the story make it so much more fun. Apart from the fact that they are very inclusive illustrations, they bring to life people from every walk of life and animals that are spread across the world. The book’s silly title will only make it more attractive to children and their parents. Everybody Toots! tells the story of how people toot everywhere they are, no matter how old or young a person is, they still do it. Sometimes we don’t even realize that we've done it. Our bodies need to breathe and that is just what this book helps to explain.

Justine Avery and Nada Meldova have done a wonderful job with this book. Let’s hope that the generations that grow up reading stories like these are the ones that see each other as humans with natural functioning bodies. We all know that up to some point in time, tooting was a disrespectful thing to do, and even women were seen as a being that simply did not toot. I am glad that Everybody Toots! has come into print to teach children from the beginning that being human means being a natural being, just like animals. We need to take care of our bodies as much as our minds and tooting is one great way of letting our bodies reset.
