This book is a bunch of crap!
I do not think any child is unable to grasp the concept of poop, to the point of requiring a book specifically devoted to it. What will they learn from Uncle Bob and public school if they already know all there is to know about poop? Sure read it once, have a good laugh. But you don't really want this book on the shelf to be brought out to you every bedtime. Do you?
And you may say that it is a potty book, and there is a need for potty books, but doesn't this particular potty book just make them fascinated with poop at the zoo. Doesn't it just encourage potty humor. It focuses very little on the potty for a potty book.
