We Toot! by Ashley Wheelock and Arwen Evans is a fun, enjoyable picture book with an important message. The story follows six young girls at a sleepover who are having a great time until a loud sound interrupts their fun. And with the sound comes a very bad smell. Everyone is disgusted by the stink and tries to find the culprit. But when the main character gets blamed, she doesn't know what to say. Will the person who farted admit it and come to her rescue, or will she be ripped off by the old saying “she who smelt it, dealt it?”
With a significant message, humor, and a diverse cast of characters, We Toot! by Ashley Wheelock and Arwen Evans is a book all children should read. The book promotes body positivity, a message everyone should hear, and also teaches that farts are natural and nothing to be embarrassed about. The book has funny scenes as well and has humorous comparisons about farts. The characters are very diverse with different shapes and colors, which makes it likely that children will see someone who looks similar to them. I really like that the characters have unique personalities, which is shown through dialogue and pictures. The book is very well written, with a fun rhyming scheme. The illustrations by Sandie Sonke are very well drawn, adorable and visually eye-catching. I love how the dialogue is written in speech bubbles. The problems faced in this book are ones most children can or will one day relate to. I would definitely recommend this book to all children.
