Book Review: P is for Poop by Ben Luster

My son has not been the most receptive little reader. In fact, he’s been downright combative at times, like when I tried to read him What’s Making Walter C. Laugh? and he threw a giant tantrum, and then there was the time he kept shoving poor Sgt. Stubby in the trash. It got to where I was hesitant to even suggest we try looking at a book together. Then Ben Luster sent us a book that involved poop and other gross things and I thought, maybe this book has a chance…

P is for Poop is a funny, rhyming alphabet book that was inspired by the many diaper changes of a sleep-deprived parent. It started as a birthday gift for Ben’s daughter and was made public with the encouragement of his wife. Each page is dedicated to a letter of the alphabet and features a bright colorful illustration drawn by Sarah Walsh.

The story follows typical family shenanigans from A for awake to ZZZ for goodnight. And during that time, plenty of funny, silly and yes, sometimes stinky things happen. My son was captivated from pages 3 and 4, as soon as the cat pooped in the shoe. And guess what? The dog pooped there too!

No crying, no tearing the book out of my hands and throwing it in the trash. So there’s the secret- I just have to get him books about poop! Of course there’s more than just poop in there- the pages that speak to me the most are “M is for Memory, Mine is no more” and “N is for Nope, can’t remember what I came in here for.” Ben is talking to us parents too!

You can find P is for Poop on Amazon in paperback for $9.99  — (*links to amazon are affiliate links)
